The parlor floor's open layout and 10-ft. ceilings create an inviting loft-like space. Recently refreshed kitchen opens to the elevated rear terrace, and conveniently connects to the windowed powder room.
The second floor's primary bedroom suite includes a large walk-through closet, double-sink bathroom, and it's own en-suite terrace overlooking the backyard. The second bedroom faces west, with beautifully restored window transoms and leafy townhouse views.
One flight up, the third and fourth bedrooms are separated by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, cozy sitting area with skylight, and laundry closet with side-by-side vented Washer/Dryer. The home's oak and glass staircase continues up to the townhouse roof. Consult an architect and engineer about the possibility of a new roof deck or additional living space.
The garden and parlor floors both access a uniquely whimsical and welcoming backyard. Built-in banquette dining table and steel swing frame (to accommodate both “school yard” swings or a comfortable outdoor loveseat) are arrayed on an intelligently designed gravel, paving stone, and engineered-turf surface. The home's garden level itself makes a perfect addition with generous storage, full bathroom, kitchenette and Peloton room.
The house is heated and cooled by a modern, multi-zone climate control system with forced water radiators and central air. Additional upgrades include a fully-integrated security and Sonos sound system, and Lutron lighting controls.
Built in 1886, 134 Manhattan Avenue is one of the most distinctive and well preserved homes on the block and is one of the earliest surviving houses by master architect C. P. H. Gilbert, employing the rustic tones of the Romanesque Revival Style with stately Queen Anne accents and roof lines. Enjoy the space and comfort of the suburbs without leaving Manhattan, in the perfect space for recharging and thriving this fall.
