CONTRACT SIGNED This stately Neo-Grec brownstone was built in 1884 for developer Henry Lansdell. Before you enter the house you will notice the incised decoration of the facade; the carved panels beneath the windows; full-height, two-sided bays on each floor, which bring lots of light into the house; and a landscaped front garden with irrigation system. Upon entering the house you will be struck by the beauty of the walnut woodwork throughout, including the wainscoting with burled walnut inlays in the entryway and along the staircase, framing the doors and windows on each floor; surrounding the decorative fireplace in the kitchen, and in the original window shutters and doors, including pocket doors that separate the kitchen from the living room. From the eat-in-kitchen you go out onto a deck that overlooks a landscaped, irrigated garden. There are two bedrooms on the second floor of this owners' triplex. The spacious master bedroom is filled with light from 3 large windows and includes a decorative fireplace with marble mantel and a large walk-in closet. The renovated bathroom on this floor has a Jacuzzi tub and a large, south-facing window. Of the four rooms on the third floor, two are being used as bedrooms, another as a laundry room and the fourth as an office. One of the bedrooms contains a stunning copper ceiling, and the renovated bathroom on this floor is flooded with light from a recessed skylight. The garden rental, which can be delivered vacant, has its own dishwasher and washer/dryer. And, the house could easily be converted to a single family home.
