The home boasts at least five bedrooms and currently only four bathrooms but can easily accommodate more of each. An old world layout with a double parlor greets one with a lovely grand entrance and can accommodate multiple sitting rooms. A Garden Level which could be most appropriately used for a kitchen and casual dining area that leads out to a lovely garden with either an open plan for a casual entertaining room or a small room suitable for guest or staff. The upstairs parlor has a gorgeous room perfect for formal dining or a library along with a master suite with Juliet balcony's throughout. The additional two floors and can easily accommodate four bedrooms plus an additional room as well as a roof deck that can be built out. This timeless Anglo- Italianate Façade has been restored and remains remarkably intact, as does most of the interior. This historic house is being offered with some of the best bones and details from its 19th century grandeur fully intact. One can find almost all the original 19th Century flooring, most of which is gorgeous parquet laid by hand, exquisite molding's appointed throughout, 8 marble fireplaces, the handsome original staircase, original skylight and many other details throughout. Located in the center of the St. Marks Historic District at the intersection of Stuyvesant Street, one of the first streets in New York, one truly gets a feel for Old New York. If you appreciate a level of detail, craftsmanship, and charm that cannot be replicated, this authentic house is a rare and exceptional offering. Please contact us to arrange a private viewing.
