Looking both fresh and comfortable, this three-story home in one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods was built circa 1840 and blends traces of historic charm with heavy doses of contemporary. Among its restored features are the wood beam ceilings, staircase, and exposed brick.
The living room includes original pinewood floors (now with radiant heat), high ceilings (13 feet) with exposed beams, and built-in shelving. The brick wood-burning fireplace is also an original and has an 1840s mantle with a decorative German ceramic tile surround. From this room a set of glass-etched double doors lead to the skylight-lit staircase.
Radiant heat tile flooring can be found in the kitchen, which has marble and butcher block countertops, as well as wood cabinetry. In addition to two side windows here, there’s also two stained and etched-glass windows. Outside, a private landscaped yard boasts cobblestone, grass, two sheds, and a flagstone patio.
On the second floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom; the third floor has the master suite, which has high ceilings with exposed beams, wood floors, and a full tile bathroom. There’s an additional bedroom and closet with vaulted ceiling leading up to a storage room with roof access. The finished basement has exposed brick, radiant ceramic tile floors, custom shelving, and a historic glass-etched door that leads to the laundry room.
Did I mention there’s also two parking spaces?
