The times they are a changin’! Especially when it comes to uptown real estate.

A townhouse on Harlem’s famed Striver’s Row has just hit the market for the substantial sum of $3.7 million, and it used to be owned by musician and Nobel prize winner Bob Dylan, reports 6sqft.

City records show the Dylan bought the five bedroom home at 265 West 139th Street in 1986 for an undisclosed amount, and he sold it to its current owners in 2000 for $560,000.

The house comes with inlaid wood floors, original pocket doors, six original mantel fireplaces and high ceilings. There’s also a chef’s kitchen, wine storage, a butlers pantry, a formal dining room, a library, several skylights, plus an interior courtyard that is used for outdoor entertaining as well as private parking.

Striver’s Row — known formally as The St. Nicholas Historic District — encompasses West 138th and West 139th Streets between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
