House of the Day: 5 Plaza Street West


This is as detailed a Renaissance Revival house as any we have seen, including 259 Decatur Street, but unlike most, it appears to be in very good condition. In addition to the usual elaborate moldings, parquet and decorative plasterwork, all of which it has in abundance, there are also some unusual stained glass windows and fireplaces, as well as (presumably original) gas sconces in a bedroom.

We also think we spy ceiling frescos in the parlor and there is a most extraordinary bathroom with tons of woodwork and two stained glass windows, which we’re guessing is a later reconfiguration of the original passthrough and closets. Curbed pointed out that a small section of floor and a water-stained part of the ceiling in the center parlor need repair, but otherwise it looks pretty flawless to us. Do you think it will go for the ask of $4,250,000?
