Top 5 Fixer-Uppers Uptown

February 8, 2018 | By Amelina Castillo

Although renovations may be costly and time consuming, they give owners the opportunity to make their apartments their own and, of course, increase resale value when it is time to sell. It is truly amazing to see how much a little love and care can change a space. Here are 5 Uptown gems with a ton of potential.



825 West 179th Street Apt. 2G

This 3-bedroom apartment is currently listed at $499,000, and for good reason- it needs a total gut renovation! But with over 820 sq. ft., there’s so much space for the right visionary to turn it into some special! This sponsor unit sits right on the corner of 179th Street and Cabrini Blvd. and offers stunning views of the George Washington Bridge. It’s also a short walk away from the A train and the new GWB Market (hello Marshalls!). That sounds like a win to me!


4260 Broadway Apt. 610

Located just steps away from the booming hub that is 181st Street, this 3-bedroom condo apartment is perfect for those looking for space and a project. 610 could use new floors, a fresh layer of paint, and a brand new kitchen. but you can’t beat the exposed brick walls and the fact that it’s a top floor unit with low common charges!


214 Bradhurst Avenue Apt. 7

This $315,000 2-bedroom HDFC is a bargain! It is already located across the street from Jackie Robinson Park and very close to transportation. A little TLC could really turn this unit into a true gem. All it needs is a buyer willing to give it a second chance.


66 Overlook Terrace Apt. 7K

This 2-bedroom apartment is listed at $475,000 to make up for the fact that it needs a paint job, new floors, and a new kitchen. Just a short walk from the beautiful Ft. Tryon Park and the A train at 190th street, this unit could easily become someone’s perfect home!


27 Hamilton Terrace

Located in the highly coveted Hamilton Heights neighborhood, this townhouse is perfect for someone with a big imagination and an even bigger bank account. It is currently listed for $2.95 million and ready for a whole lot of love and renovations!
