THE BROWNSTONE REIMAGINED
Located in the landmarked Jumel Terrace Historic District, 449 West 162 is a beautifully reimagined brownstone offering four prewar-inspired, newly constructed full-floor residences, each with expansive private outdoor space.
This extraordinary location – distinguished by tree-lined streets and elegant turn-of-the-century townhomes – places residents at the nexus of Upper Manhattan’s most storied and vibrant neighborhoods. Greenspaces just steps away include the manicured gardens at the Morris-Jumel Mansion and Highbridge Park overlooking Harlem River.
Prewar Grandeur meets Contemporary Elegance in Four Full-Floor Condominiums with Private Outdoor Space
Taking inspiration from Manhattan’s grand prewar homes, each of just four full-floor residences has been designed to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship using the finest natural materials. Soaring ceilings, wide-plank white oak flooring, and double-hung wood-framed windows are key elements
of this timelessly sophisticated aesthetic. Features that ensure ultimate comfort and convenience include low-E energy-efficient glass in the windows, a high-performance super-quiet climate control system, and a full-size washer and dryer in each residence.
The heart of each of these spacious homes is a chef-caliber kitchen with contemporary high-gloss white lacquer cabinetry, honed soapstone countertops, and Carrara marble tile backsplashes. A full suite of stainless steel Bosch appliances makes it a pleasure to prepare gourmet feasts that can be enjoyed either indoors or at the residence’s private garden or rooftop terrace.
En-suite master bathrooms and secondary bathrooms have been designed with floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble tile walls, Carrara marble tile floors, and thermostatic Grohe faucets for precise control of water temperature. The master bathroom features a step-in shower with full-height glass walls.
