    Property Details

    HISTORY REVIVED AND RE-IMAGINED Located on one of the most charming, wide and beautiful blocks in the coveted Jumel Terrace Historic District, 434 West 162nd Street presents impeccably restored period details coupled with a modern renovation for comfortable living. Measuring 19.5 feet wide encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet of space plus an uncommonly private garden, this historic single-family home is an amazing opportunity for even the most discerning townhouse buyer. Unparalleled preservation and restoration abound, including these original features: multiple chandeliers, moldings, ornate hand-carved woodwork, pocket doors, hardware, hardwood floors with decorative inlay, folding shutters, 7 tiled fireplaces, stained-glass skylight and working dumb waiter. Even the delicate ornamental embossed plaster walls in the stairway have been artfully refurbished. The home has been modernized with central air and heating, new mechanicals, new roof, new electric, new plumbing, security system, fully renovated kitchen and bathrooms plus dual laundry facilities. The residence is located near the A/C and 1 trains and convenient to an abundance of shopping, services and New York Presbyterian Hospital. GARDEN: The garden level consists of an expansive great room with original built-in bookcases and restored woodwork, a renovated full bathroom and a huge chef's kitchen with endless custom cabinetry, 3 sinks, 6-burner cook-top, double wall oven, wine storage and room for a large center dining table. From here, French doors open to a private garden, bordered by raised planting beds, perfect for dining alfresco and 3-season entertaining. PARLOR Accessed by a gracious entry foyer, the parlor level offers the ideal space for formal entertaining with grand living and dining rooms separated by an elegant study and pocket doors. Each room boasts a fireplace and preserved details from the Mahogany-inlay hardwood floors and original chandeliers to a wet bar in the formal dining room. THIRD FLOOR: Three bay windows adorned with working shutters overlook a sleepy tree-lined street creating a lovely backdrop for the grand-scale master suite complete with an over-sized dressing room equipped with double vanities and beautiful original marble sinks. A second large bedroom and a newly renovated windowed bath complete this level. Fireplaces with original tile and hard-carved mantels embellish each bedroom. FOURTH FLOOR: A beautiful refurbished stained-glass skylight welcomes you to the upper floor where two generously proportioned bedrooms rest, separated by a dressing room. Rounding out the top floor are several walk-in closets, a renovated full bath, laundry room and a smaller third room which could serve as a JR bedroom, nursery, home office or meditation room. CELLAR: A clean, open cellar reveals much of the home's new infrastructure (duct-work, plumbing, wiring, appliances) and provides ample space for hobbies, storage and laundry (existing).
