About this Property
Enter through grand front doors and into the formal foyer of the parlor floor, where soaring, 11+ foot ceilings, original mahogany woodwork, intricate plaster and millwork and patterned parquet floors prevail. Built 20 feet wide and 50 feet deep, this elegant level features an expansive formal sitting room and a grand dining space - the two of which, when combined, evoke a grand and expensive feel. Toward the rear of the home, sunshine adorns a spacious kitchen through south and west-facing windows, off of which, the convenience of a parlor level powder room can be found. A large terrace, too, poses the perfect space for al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining, with stairs abutting and leading down to a private garden.
The entire second floor of the home is dedicated to an impressive master suite. An oversized, original bay window overlooks the tranquil, tree-lined block from the full-width bedroom. This suite also features laundry facilities and an en-suite bathroom, and toward the rear of the level, a spacious sitting room or study. At least two additional bedrooms, along with two homework or study spaces and two full-baths can be found on the third and final floor of the home.
Currently configured as an owners triplex with a two-bedroom garden apartment, easily convert the home back to an impressive single-family, or utilize the extra space as an income-producing rental, an in-law apartment or a retreat for visiting friends and family.
