The master-crafted renovation of the triplex at 251 West 138th Street, located in the heart of historic and tree-lined Striver’s Row, propels this property to the forefront of all rental opportunities. Wake up and come home to comfort, history, and the sophistication of luxury. The enclosed garage space plus the private parking spaces on the side are two key attractions to this unique property with a beautiful landscaped deck atop the garage.

Renovated with meticulous attention to detail, this five-bedroom, four-full-bathroom walk-up triplex needs to be seen to be believed. Retaining all the old-world charm of richly finished wood, original parquet floors, and intricate plaster crown molding on the 10-foot ceilings, the triplex boasts a fully renovated, modern kitchen which opens onto a spacious dining area and a central winding staircase that evokes the anticipation of an age-gone-by.

Come into your new home from the blustery cold of the New York City elements. The warm inviting light welcomes you, pouring out from the iron-wrought heavy glass and wooden doors. Come walk into an elegant, light-filled hallway and choose to settle into a living room which invites you to put up your feet and take a break or continue straight towards the spacious dining area with double-high windows on two sides. You can look out from the dining/kitchen area onto a landscaped terrace, protected again with iron-wrought fencing and an outdoor seating area under the protection of a wide umbrella.

Walk upstairs and again light streams in from extra-large windows along the side of this corner triplex. The sense of space is wonderful as you walk up to the second floor. A wonderful, full bathroom with a glass-encased shower allows comfort for guests. To the left is the master bedroom suite, a renovated bathroom and a full-size closet. The bedroom is an oasis of light and space, a room also with a panoramic view of green-leafed 138th street. The bedroom on the right is also large and comfortable, perfect for your children or guests who will appreciate the beautiful plaster work surrounding the decorative fireplace and mirror above the mantel

Walk up to the third floor and there you have a fully renovated bathroom and an extravagantly large washer/dryer set. The two bedrooms offer privacy on this floor that is unequivocal, wonderful, and serene.

This is a wonderful neighborhood to belong to – art galleries, coffee shops, eateries of a variety of cuisines. With just a short walk to the subway stations, you are connected to all of Manhattan and beyond.
