DWELL: 363 WEST 120TH STILL ON MARKET

Harlem Bespoke: Number 363 West 120th Street arrived on the market for an impressive $4.5 million asking price back in April and has yet to have a price reduction which probably means there has been some interest in the South Harlem address.  As previously mentioned, this brownstone is within one of those charming blocks (general view pictured above) right by Morningside Park but the intact row houses on the north side faces a schoolyard.  With that said, the gut renovation of the 2-family home did leave a few fireplaces and the marble bath areas at least have some classic elements to them.  Express subway stops on 125th Street and the FDB commercial corridor are also just a 5 minute walk aways.  More details and photos on the broker site: LINK
