This turn-of-the-last-century brick townhouse on the border of Windsor Terrace and Kensington has an open plan and plenty of pretty details on the parlor floor, including what appears to be the original mantel and neoclassical columns leading into the dining room.

It’s rare to see a new single family house going up. Much more typical are three-story, three-family Fedders buildings. The architect is Gerald Caliendo, whose portfolio of single family residences shows […]
