Amazing single family home in one of the coolest neighborhoods in town. Great period details coupled with a modernist sensibility; textures, tones and materials are just right. 5 story brick house with full basement, live/work possibility, 4 to 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, small garden, central air, washer/dryer, fireplace, and a unique glass enclosed and windowed stairwell. The garden level has a very large working kitchen and island bar, dining area and half bath. The grand living room and foyer is on the parlor floor and overlooks the dining area and garden below through a wall of windows. The third floor can either be a master bedroom or great office space with two anterior rooms, the fourth floor has two bedrooms and a bath and the fifth floor is duplexed with 17 foot ceilings in the center and a full bath making it ideal for another master suite or a great children's floor. This unique home was built in 1861 by one of New York's most famous architects, James Renwick, Jr.
