Property Description

This iconic celebrated townhouse, circa 1852, is a historic gem that exemplifies quality and elegance. Original floors, high ceiling, huge windows, four fireplaces, two staircases, 4/5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, family room, office and wet bar, all awash in natural light. You'll enter through the vestibule and handsome original front door, into the main long hallway. Large scale entertaining and family gatherings will be hosted in the spectacular living room with 11' 8" high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, a Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier and built-in bookshelves on the south wall. Main hallway extends toward the dining room with another beautiful crystal chandelier, a gas fireplace with custom brass/glass screen and windows on both sides of the room. The side entrance to the house features statuary marble floors in the foyer which lead to a cozy office and half bath. The bright kitchen with hand painted tiles offers multiple windows, much storage and counter preparation, a large table space plus a door to the patio for al fresco dining. The staircase to the second floor is grand as is the divine master suite with a fireplace, original floors, custom millwork, tall windows and original wide doors. A separate dressing room offers multiple closets, tall shelves for hat boxes and other cabinets for folded items. Every inch of the gorgeous master bath is clad in marble, a custom cabinet for incidentals and a large marble shower with seamless glass door. Windows line the hallway leading from one room to another. The center room is a bedroom, library or TV room, offering a gas fireplace, windows on two sides, storage closet and great old floors. Another renovated bath adjoins the center room. A back bedroom with windows on 3 sides is sizeable with closets and open shelves. Two guest rooms and a full bath are found on the top floor, also with many windows. The reading nook on the top floor landing is a perfect place to finish that last chapter of your book. The expansive lower level is a wonderful casual area for family gathering or an ideal workspace featuring handsome moldings, full bath, and custom built-ins plus two desks. There is additional ample storage in the lower level including many closets and access to the pergola covered breezeway leading to the lovely patio. This distinguished residence in the southeast quadrant is within walking distance to everything Old Town has to offer.
