Welcome home to this lovingly cared for, three family brick townhouse of almost 3000 sqft plus partially finished basement. The stately brick facade rises three stories high, with an attractive cornice above and a windowed basement below. The gracious entryway has been fully restored with brand new mahogany outer doors, and majestic original inner door, paneling, and encaustic tile. Attractive wallpaper and a delicate chandelier complete the effect. Once inside the beauty continues as newly rebuilt stairs accentuate the original banister and stunning newel post, as well as charming beadboard and plaster ceilings. On the parlor floor the expansive open living space highlights the fifty foot depth of the building. On one end charming floor to ceiling windows bookend the living room, additionally anchored by a decorative fireplace, which could be made working again should one choose. On the other end a brand new windowed kitchen with at attractive penny tile backsplash, Corian countertops, a full suite of new stainless steel appliances and a large breakfast bar invites you to linger. A large dining space adjacent to the kitchen opens up to the over 800 sqft backyard beyond, a positively perfect place to play, entertain and relax! The first floor also features a newly renovated marble bathroom with over-sized stall shower, and mint condition hardwood floors and recessed lighting are found throughout. Downstairs, the windowed basement is currently semi finished with a rec room, smaller room, fully renovated bathroom and an open laundry room leading to the backyard. Use the space as is, or create a large open rec room for movie night or play dates. Upstairs, the elegant front bedroom is currently used as part of the owner's unit and features a full dressing room, as well as all of the original details of the home such as plaster ceilings and ceiling medallion, and original doors and casing (including stunning pocket doors). In the back two-thirds of the second floor is a separate one bedroom apartment with a newly renovated windowed kitchen featuring cherry cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. This apartment also features a full bath and ample closet space. Keep it as a separate apartment or easily combine with the first floor and basement to covert the building to a three+ bedroom, three bath owner's triplex plus top floor rental (see the alternate floor plan for one vision of such a conversion). On the top floor is the third apartment, currently being used as a three bedroom. It is light and airy and has retained all of the building's charming original details from plaster ceilings and medallions to widow and door casings. The kitchen is also windowed and has charming original beadboard paneling. There is a full bath, as well as tons of closet and storage space throughout as well as a proper dining area off the inviting living room.
