If you're yearning for an expansive (and expensive) historic townhouse with modern conveniences uptown, 10 Jumel Terrace in Washington Heights may be the place for you. This four bedroom, three bath is listed for $2,600,000, and it's in the Jumel Terrace Historic District.
The Romanesque Revival townhouse was designed by Henri Fouchaux for William Watkins in 1896, and is one of five landmarked townhouses on the street. It is opposite the Jumel-Morris Mansion, the one-time residence of George Washington, built in 1765.
The house is 18 feet wide and has four floors. It retains many period details including pocket doors, oak cabinetry, wainscoting, five decorative fireplaces, wood shutters, and a hand-carved staircase. A bay window looks out on the cobblestone street below.
