This grand dame gem has been restored throughout with hand carved banisters, fireplaces in every room (3 currently restored to function) as well as a beautiful stained glass sky light which adorns the top floor. A private garden with fruit trees, a fountain and an herb garden make this a lovely home for both summer and winter entertaining.

The basement is finished with built in bookcases and a guest nook with private full bath perfect for a play room, child help or a teen get away. Full laundry and 3 huge closets make cleaning and storage so convenient.

The lower floor is comprised of a fully restored kitchen with ample counter and storage space and has an eat in area as well as opening up to a family room. There is access into the garden through lovely beveled glass doors and this open layout makes it an easy place to have family time.

Every detail from the switchplates to the lighting to the interior of the fireplaces is styled in art, which allows your to bring either your modern styling sensibility or your old world charm to complement the existing beauty.

On the stoep level gorgeous wood doors welcome you into an entry foyer. On this floor a fully outfitted butler's pantry as well as a dumb waiter makes entertaining a breeze in the oversized formal livingroom/dining room. The wood burning fireplace adorned with angels adds to any party. A beautiful oversize window lets in lovely afternoon light.

Windows overlook the garden and the silence is an amazing rarity in the city. This floor can be made into 2 rooms, each with its own bath, by closing the wooden pocket doors or they can be left open to create a master suite.

The upper floor hosts 2 bedrooms as well as a skylit office with built in bookcases and room for a desk or additional guest space. Each bedroom has a dedicated en suite bathroom for a total of 6 full baths in the home.

The house is decorated with beautiful wood shutters, heavy wood doors and hand carved banisters.
