Town House

Built in 1905


Enter this magnificent brownstone, and you will immediately be captivated by the 11-foot-high ceilings on the parlor floor. The foyer includes a pier mirror, original to the home, that sets a stately tone for visitors and occupants alike--one that can be appreciated throughout the 4,500-square-foot, four-story, single-family townhome.

Aptly described as grand, the front parlor room is light and bright from the curved bay windows that perfectly frame tree-lined President Street to the original chandelier. Custom hand-painted vintage wallpaper, another pier mirror, and intricate fretwork leading to the den are among the myriad original details that remain. The adjoining den further displays the home's elegant appeal with a working fireplace, discreet bar, and one-of-a-kind textured wallpaper.

Entertain with ease with formal dining, a massive eat-in kitchen, and access to the backyard, all located on the garden level of the home. The dining area is a perfect backdrop for your most intimate and formal gatherings, with space to seat large parties comfortably. Charm and function collide in the kitchen, which boasts architecturally exposed beams, a traditional hearth original to the home, ample counter and storage space, and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances, including a double oven, fridge, and stove top with vented hood. The kitchen can easily accommodate a four-person table, seating for two at the island, and even includes a built-in workspace for students and workers who want to attend kitchen conversations. Step outside onto the private paved patio to enjoy fresh air and warm summer New York nights.
A laundry room and half-bathroom are in a small extension on this level.

The wide open third floor has front-facing bay windows, a deep closet, and a chic sitting room with more closet space. A pass-through from the bedroom to the sitting room has original mahogany fitted closets and private wash basins. The full bathroom on this floor is light and airy in feel, has a well-preserved clawfoot tub, brass hardware, and dreamy, original tile. If you need more bedrooms, the sitting room (with another wood-burning fireplace) can easily be converted into another full bedroom.

The home's top floor is a quiet reprieve, with sparkling and abundant natural light cascading into each room. The designated office is an ideal space to work or study. Timelessly in-fashion built-in bookshelves offer functionality and style, while the treetop view from the window can cure even the strongest thinker's block. Two generously sized bedrooms with adjoining pass-thru hall, a regal nursery, and a second full bathroom with shower and skylight round out the living spaces of the home.
A full-sized basement with 8'ft high ceilings has endless uses, from traditional storage to an artist's studio. Easy access to mechanics is a helpful addition to this versatile space. The house is fully alarmed, there are solar panels on the roof, the garden floor has central air conditioning, and the gas-fueled boiler and hot water heater are up to date.
