Timeless European elegance, old-world craftsmanship, refinement, versatility, and modern amenities define this distinctive 22-foot wide turn-of-the-century Center Slope Italianate brownstone. Seven bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms graciously span throughout this home.
The glamorous parlour floor features a sun-drenched formal living room, boasting 11 foot ceilings, inspiring south-facing full height windows with pocket shutters, stunning original moldings, and a decorative marble mantle. Perfect for effortless entertaining, the living room flows seamlessly into an open concept eat-in kitchen, which is tastefully appointed with crisp white cabinets and contrasting countertops along with stainless steel appliances that include a Bosch range and a Miele dishwasher. The dining area features a marble mantle and french doors to the deck where a spiral staircase descends to the tranquil garden.
The third level has the classic yet modern brownstone layout: two bright and generously-proportioned rooms, an attached bonus child’s room/study/dressing room, and an oversize windowed full bathroom. The north-facing room offers a wet bar, enabling it to double as a family room or bedroom. The top floor is similarly configured with two king-size bedrooms, each with an adjacent side-room, and a full sky-lit bathroom. Both upper levels are warmed by original pine plank flooring. Adorned with white-washed hardwood floors, the garden level features a versatile layout. A casually elegant front room is perfect for use as a family room with charming tin ceilings, windows with pocket shutters, a marble mantle, and built-in bookcase. A bright rear room has an en-suite jacuzzi bathroom and leads to a garden room with sliding doors and radiant-heated concrete floors. This room is an ideal spot for curling up with a book and a cup of coffee or glass of wine while overlooking the changing seasons.
In the garden level is also a tumbled travertine bathroom with a European spa-like walk-in dual-head shower and a heated floor. A bonus hallway in between the rooms offers built-in shelving and extra closet space. Finally, the basement offers flexible recreation space with exposed beams; featuring natural light via a skylit hatch, a powder room, a laundry room with a Whirlpool washer-dryer and a sink, and excellent storage.
Three-zone central-air throughout the home provides comfort.
