This turn-of-the-century, 5-story plus cellar townhouse is an exceptional property. Located in prime Harlem on a gorgeous brownstone block, the 3,952 square foot residence is 19' wide and 49' deep, built on a 19' by 100' lot. The townhouse boasts 8 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, 3 currently unused bath hookups, a gracious forecourt, a lovely garden, and ample additional interior space on the garden level that could be used as a library, a media room, or for any other multitude of purposes. All of the sprawling home's rooms are graciously proportioned, and the upper floors are enhanced by soaring ceilings. In addition, the sun-filled residence receives truly excellent natural light. Built as a single family residence, this townhome now functions as a facility for Hale House Center, a nationally-recognized non-profit organization dedicated to building better futures for the youth of New York City. The organization was founded in 1969 by Clara McBride Hale, or Mother Hale as she was known. Mother Hale was a pioneer in self-help efforts and came to symbolize the untapped potential of disadvantaged groups taking care of their own. She eventually won international recognition for her efforts, and President Ronald Reagan saluted her as an "American heroine" in his 1985 State of the Union address.
