This 3,655 square feet circa 1900 four bedroom, four bathroom home with two bedroom apartment seamlessly blends the best of turn of the century Dutch revival architecture with a smartly designed modern home with every luxury and convenience for today's lifestyle. With three distinct outdoor spaces totaling 1180 square feet- a private garden, a grilling/entertaining deck, and a roof terrace- there is as much to love about the outdoor experience as much as the inviting interiors.
The restored original stoop and original wood and leaded glass door leads to the parlor floor library with handsome restored 1900 quarter sawn oak wood paneling and intricately carved woodwork, soaring ceilings and a gracious formal entry gallery to welcome guests with style.
Double doors lead to the guest apartment great room-with ample living space featuring a decorative fireplace, and a beautiful eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and French doors leading to the glorious planted garden with boxwood privacy hedge, exterior lighting, water, and outdoor grill. Downstairs you'll find two guest suites and a full bath tiled with Italian glass mosaic- and a walk-in wine cellar lined with original excavated stone. The private entry for the lower duplex apartment is located off this level with direct street access.
Ascend the gorgeous original stairway with immaculately restored balustrade, spindles and Newell post- and you arrive at the entertainment lounge of the owner's sanctuary with high ceilings, decorative fireplace, wide plank oak flooring, and large windows overlooking trees and historic houses. This unlimited expanse of formal living, dining and a stunning kitchen that leads to an expansive deck is the open-flow space that suits today's living.
The sparkling modern Scavolini kitchen features a Sub-Zero fridge, vented Wolfe stove, white lacquer cabinets, enormous quartz island and storage for all of your cooking implements. Sun filled with blissful southern light, the entertaining deck accessed off the kitchen is the perfect spot for your gas grill and outdoor bar. A powder room for guests completes this level of the home.
The next level up is the sumptuous master suite surrounded by a canopy of mature trees and green leaves- utterly peaceful. The king sized bedroom has high ceilings, a beautiful decorative fireplace, and a walk- in dressing closet that leads to a luxurious master bathroom with soaking tub and double shower. Tiled in marble and Italian ceramics- the master bath is a true spa retreat. Also on this floor is a spacious sun filled bedroom or master sitting room with a windowed half bath.
The top floor contains two generous bedrooms, a laundry room with high capacity LG vented machines and a utility sink- and one more full bathroom. Natural light steams through courtesy of the skylight.
The private roof deck is paved with slate, and offers stunning views of the towers of City College, historic homes, and church spires- and thanks to its high position and additional height compared to its neighbors- an open and protected view from all directions.
