The kitchen features prewar cabinets and tile, a black and white Chambers stove, and a dishwasher. All the bathrooms have their original subway tile, each accented with tile in a different color.
On the first floor, there is a huge windowed center hall, living room with fireplace, formal dining area with French doors, and a spacious eat-in kitchen.
