The second duplex apartment, entered via the main door and up an interior set of stairs, features a large living room with southern exposure, tasteful crown moldings, original ceiling medallions, a decorative fireplace and other classic details. The roomy kitchen overlooks the backyard and a full bath occupies the third floor.
