Presented for the first time in nearly a generation, this unique and stately townhouse, once coveted by a major home and garden magazine who offered the owner an opportunity to feature the property in its magazine, can now be yours, including the concord grapevine in the garden.
The home features all the original intricate woodworking details common among the early 20th century architects for the elites at the time. Additionally the house seems to have a remarkable benefit rarely found pre-remodeled townhouses, that of, very little wear and tear.
A triplex over a one bedroom, it was once a single family layout which has been modified every so slightly by a staircase door to create the garden apartment. So conversion back to a single family house is equally as easy and simple. Thus, access to the house, including the cellar is available from the ground level garden apartment.
Another striking feature of the house is upon entering the home from the parlor level (second floor) you are struck immediately in the foyer with the remarkable rich, stately and attractive wood-workings, followed by an entertainment and library area. A sky-light create a light-well and natural lighting throughout the entire home. The additional floors greet you with a sensible and predictable four bedroom with full-bathroom and fireplaces with iron ornate doors for concealment and tucking away.
