Garden Floor
A gated forecourt alongside the townhouse stoop leads to a private entrance. The garden floor is currently configured as an in-law suite. The front of the floor is a large bedroom. The remainder of the floor has a more open floor plan with a combined kitchen and living space that includes a Murphy bed. Sliding glass doors at the rear provide natural light and direct access to a deep and wonderfully sunny garden. Boasting mature trees, and beautiful flowering bushes, it is a Midtown oasis.

A full bathroom and storage closet are also centrally located on the garden floor.

Parlour Floor
A lovely vestibule welcomes residents home by offering a buffer from the street outside, and also a peek at the handsome architectural details within. Floor to ceiling doors open to reveal a formal sitting room with beautiful wainscoting and a sweet brick hearth. A coat closet and powder room are tucked into a wide gallery that leads past the staircase to a set of double doors. Beyond, lies an incredible, sun-drenched formal living room at the rear of the parlour floor. It features a wall of windows, original marble fireplace mantle, and a wet bar.

Third Floor
The third floor hosts a gracious eat-in kitchen with all desired amenities including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, large electric range, dishwasher, and a custom pantry. Sunlight streams into this gathering space through two windows that retain the original shutters and bench seating.

The rear of the floor is occupied by a bedroom with a fireplace mantle and hearth, huge closet, a nook for books or an entertainment center, and two windows overlooking the garden. A central bathroom with a wide pedestal sink and jacuzzi tub/shower combination complete the floor.

Fourth Floor
The layout of the uppermost floor provides a sense of privacy and retreat. The townhouse’s primary suite is situated at the rear. A set of French doors reveal a spacious bedroom that has a dual garden and skyline view. The suite also contains a set of his and hers closets, a full bathroom with double walk-in shower and lovely skylight, and a linen closet with a stackable washer/dryer unit.

The front bedroom boasts a fireplace with the original marble mantle, windows with shutters and bench seating, as well as an en-suite bathroom with a skylight. An additional linen closet can be found in the main hallway. There is also enclosed ladder access to the roof.
