This private residence is a classic example of Italianate style Victorian architecture. The exterior style is replete with typical bay window adorned with a curved shape and accent detail above the windows. The wide eaves above the front entrance, around the first-floor bay and along the top are accentuated with ornate ornamental brackets. The original curved marble steps lead you to the tall, double doors and into the inner vestibule with inlaid marble floor. Maintaining the original 'Heart Pine' floors and the accompanying 11ft. ceilings, the graciousness of this house is unlike so many others where the period details no longer exist. The beautiful marble mantle frames the gas fireplace and adds to the charm of this bright and sunny living room. Original pocket doors divide the large living room with a smaller parlor that could easily be used as a reading room or home office. The separate dining room is large enough to accommodate a table for 10 guests while the large kitchen has the space for more casual dining. The kitchen has a free-standing VIKING range, a new Sub-Zero refrigerator and new dishwasher. Outside the back door is a quaint patio and gate to private, off-street, two car parking. Equally graced by 10' ceilings, the second floor offers two large bedrooms. The spacious primary bedroom on the front of the house with its bright southern exposure is enhanced with tall, almost floor-to-ceiling windows. The custom, pass through walk-in closet leads to a private full bath with a double basin vanity. Conveniently, the new washer and dryer are located on this floor as well in a separate laundry closet near the hall bath. The rear bedroom allows access to the expansive and private roof deck that's perfect for outdoor entertaining or peaceful relaxation. Completing this offering is what is sometimes referred to as 'the best of both worlds.' this home is heated via a gas-fired boiler supplying hot water, radiator heat for consistent warmth in the cooler months and a two-zone, central AC system for the warmer months.
