Here’s what the broker had to say about the property:

This multi-family prewar townhouse was built in the late 19th century (c. 1887) by Theobald Engelhardt… The free standing three family Victorian with driveway parking is now a completely refurbished property. Wheel-cut glass pocket doors, three original fireplaces (two working-gas), parquet floors throughout and an extra-large very private back yard and rare off street parking with two car garage, along with woodwork, etched glass, plaster moldings, and a fully upgraded mechanical system complete this property, which has been maintained impeccably throughout. There are two high income rentals above the owners duplex.
