This 1840s Greek Revival brick and brownstone townhouse at 95 Kane Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront District has had some serious work done, but more remains. The structure and staircase have been reinforced, the mechanicals and roof are new, and it’s been insulated.
A prospective buyer could go one of two ways with this one: Create an all-modern interior with historic exterior, or reconstruct the historic interior details and combine with modern amenities.
Some historic details remain, including wood floors, a mahogany staircase, metal paneling, window casings and a mantel. There’s also an attractive landscaped garden in back.
The house is extra wide at 22 feet. It’s 40 feet long, with four stories plus a cellar, for a total of 3,656 square feet.
It’s on a large lot that goes back 90 feet, and has room for an addition or a lap pool, according to the listing, from Beth Kenkel at Corcoran.
The mechanicals have been set up to allow for a variety of configurations, including a rental apartment on the garden level and a kitchen on the parlor floor. The top floor could be configured as two large bedrooms or a master suite, according to the listing.
A change of occupancy will be needed to take it from a four-family to a two-family. All cash or a construction loan will be required.
