LA GRANDE DAME! There are unique properties and there are unique properties. and then there's THIS! The multi-family inventory in the vicinity is limited which makes this a rare opportunity to begin with, but once you see the lovingly restored turn-of-the-century details together with the carefully selected, tasteful finishes of this Georgian-style townhouse with Philadephia brick facade, you will appreciate the gem you just stumbled upon. You really need to see this for yourself, but let's give you some highlights to whet your home-buying appetite.

The 5BR+/2.5BA owner's triplex will make any architectural buff drool with the myriad of incredible details throughout the house: windows literally EVERYWHERE with majestic wood moldings restored to their original glory, super high ceilings creating an added sense of space, three (!) original gas fireplaces with exquisite detailing (currently decorative only), exposed brick, original wood plank floors with extra high intricately detailed wood base boards, dreamy wood banisters leading to the upper floors, and even two skylights! The modern updates don't fall short of the beauty of yesteryear, creating a harmonious juxtaposition between old and new.

The open island kitchen/dining room/living room floor-through combo on the parlor floor is any home chef's dream-come-true, featuring cool bamboo cabinetry, Liebherr fridge, GE Profile double oven, Viking cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, and white corian countertops, and as an added bonus, you can swiftly access the backyard from the kitchen through an iron-gated glass door to pick up the herbs and home-grown vegetables for your dinner party, or fresh pears for your pie. Now let that sink in: from your own garden. In MANHATTAN!! The backyard also includes a large storage shed with wall-to-wall shelving, convenient for off-season storage, garden tools, and any other bulky storage - or the best ever man-cave for the guy(s) in the house. Oh, and while the house underwent a thorough overhaul, a powder room was also added on the main floor for extra convenience.

The second and third floors don't miss a beat in this competition for perfection: the second floor features a gigantic main bedroom with an elegant en-suite bathroom complete with double duravit sink, duravit toilet, European Hansgrohe shower set, Bainultra jacuzzi, and radiant in-floor heating, and another large bedroom with charming bay windows featuring the next in the series of original fireplaces. The third floor is a flexible 2/3BR configuration with yet another bathroom - cast iron clawfoot tub & vintage porcelain sink with oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, anyone?? - and a laundry area with stacked washer/dryer and a darling period slop sink. The two skylights beam in unbeatable light, one of them featuring new solar-powered remote-controlled shades.

The beauty of a multi-family property is that you can get some help with the mortgage and carrying costs, which often allows you to buy more space than you could otherwise afford, and that's precisely the case here, too: the ground floor features a fully updated 1BR/1BA rental unit (also a perfect in-law apartment!), complete with its own entrance and access to the backyard. Some of the other recent (less sexy) updates to the house include revitalization of the roof, partially new wiring (including home run), all new plumbing, house fan, and more. Book an appointment to see for yourself - and be prepared to hire movers!
