Imagine living in a house with grand proportions on every floor and a fully realized garden that feels like you are living on a country estate. Used as a one-family, but a legal two-family, this home has flexibility and options not afforded by the narrower homes in the neighborhood. Enjoy central AC, hardwood floors, original and well-preserved moldings, high-ceilings and great light from multiple large south facing windows.
Head up the grand stoop to a truly magnificent parlor-floor with the grandeur of a loft space but the warmth of turn-of-the-century details. The front parlor will amaze with its oversized Piers mirror, floor-to-ceiling windows, stunning marble wood-burning fireplace, gracious plaster ceiling detail, and a wall of custom built-ins. The back parlor has been transformed into a South-facing suburban-sized eat-in kitchen offering three walls of floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, a suite of chefs appliances including a paneled 48 Sub-Zero fridge, a vented 6 burner stove and range, an unrivaled pantry, and miles of white and gray Quartz counter space for cooking, baking, and entertaining. A door on this floor offers access from the kitchen to the garden for easy al fresco entertaining. All three full bathrooms in this home were recently renovated with a classic combination of Carrara marble hexagon mosaics, handmade subway tile, new vanities, mirrors, lighting and storage. Glass enclosed showers are spacious and updated with all new fixtures.
Head up one flight to your first floor of oversized bedrooms on a gracious, wide and windowed staircase, a rarity in these homes. Two oversized bedrooms await, offering home offices and/or a second casual living room option as well. The front room offering three oversized windows across has a second wood -burning fireplace and makes a fantastic den. A large laundry and utility room and a full bath with a steam shower and separate jack and jill lavatory room make this floor flexible and practical for many uses. Head one more windowed flight up to three more bedrooms, including a large South-facing primary bedroom, an additional and equally sized bedroom facing North, and a third bedroom that is currently used as a dreamy walk-in-closet and dressing room but could easily be transformed back into a bedroom or office.
The garden floor is currently accessible down a flight of stairs from the parlor and offers its own separate entrance if you want a tenant, or if you work from home and want a separate entrance. Two sizable bedrooms reside on this floor, in addition to a full bath, recently renovated. Seven bedrooms total are available throughout this home for whatever your needs.
Handsome and practical millwork, including a discrete paneled fridge and extra pantry space have been cleverly built into the wide hallway space leaving no space unused in this grand home. Step directly out to the magical garden where you should prepare to be amazed.

An irrigation system and assorted flowers throughout complete this masterpiece.
