Historic Striver's Row 4-story single-family townhouse. Situated mid-block on a bucolic tree-lined street, the home has much of its early natural wood details intact. Five wood-burning fireplaces with original tile work and carved mantels, ornate moldings, intricate cornices, and double entry are a few of the attractive architectural characteristics throughout. A large skylight baths the central staircase of the home in natural sunlight, highlighting the delicate spindles and rare finials that are all still in place. Renovated several years ago to suit today's modern lifestyle, the home has a large ground floor eat-in kitchen, family room, and office. The Parlor floor, with its 11 foot ceilings, is accessed from the front stoop as well as the central staircase and from a back stair that leads up from the kitchen. The primary bedroom suite occupies the entire 3rd floor with a generous dressing room and large bath that opens on to a private terrace. The top floor has 3 more bedrooms and access to the roof via a proper staircase.
