Professionally restored with inlaid hardwood floors, cypress trim,
living room with gas fireplace, kitchen with granite counter tops, new
bathrooms, plumbing and electrical systems. Walk to downtown and NYC
This fine home has been professionally restored to 1898 character and
charm. The inlaid hardwood floors and the extensive cypress trim has all
been stripped and refinished. The plaster walls have been completely
stripped of excess paint, refinished, and color-matched to the original
1898 colors. The entire interior of this home, from the gleaming floors
to the second floor foyer, exudes a charm and warmth not found in newer
homes. The living room features a custom gas fireplace with three-part
Basque relief, built-in bookcases and gold leaf border. The kitchen is
a cook’s delight, featuring granite counter tops, stainless steel
appliances and a Viking professional stove. Other updates include new
bathrooms with the finest fixtures, as well as plumbing and electrical
systems. The three-car garage is large enough for virtually any vehicle
and features a walk-up storage loft. Walk to downtown and NYC bus.
