Here’s a modest two-story early 20th century single-family brick house with a porch and striped retractable awning that is for sale in Windsor Terrace. Located at 179 Seeley Street, it can’t be much more than 1,300 square feet, not including the finished basement. But the place is well-proportioned and has a few characteristic period details, as well as tasteful improvements by the family that has been there since at least 1969.
The living room has double windows, parquet floors and an archway with a scalloped detail, which frames a dining room with windows into the small backyard and an Arts & Crafts-style staircase leading upstairs. The renovated kitchen is in a rear extension, giving it light from two sides. It features hardwood floors, wood cabinets, a stone countertop, subway tile backsplash and recent stainless steel appliances.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with closets and parquet floors, and all of good size. The bathroom has been updated with large charcoal floor tiles, ivory-colored tiles surrounding the bathtub and a skylight.
The home is one of a row of one family brick houses (167-181) completed in 1923. An early ad for some of the houses describes them as “high grade.”
It does not appear to have central air, but it does have a convenient washer and dryer in the basement, extra closets and a toilet. Marie Lee Parker at Corcoran is handling the listing, which is priced at $1.895 million. Will it get what it’s asking?
