Handsome and historic Striver's Row 4-story single-family townhouse with cellar. Situated mid-block on a bucolic tree-lined street, this approximately 3,145 sf home faces south and has much of its early natural wood details intact. Five wood-burning fireplaces with original tile work and carved mantels, ornate moldings, intricate cornices, and double entry are a few of the attractive architectural characteristics throughout. A large skylight baths the central staircase of the home in natural sunlight, highlighting the delicate spindles and rare finials that are all still in place. Renovated several years ago to suit today's modern lifestyle, the home has a large ground floor eat-in kitchen, family room, and office. The Parlor floor, with its 11 foot ceilings, is accessed from the front stoop as well as the central staircase and from a back stair that leads up from the kitchen. The formal living and dining rooms are on this floor, along with an additional office. The primary bedroom suite occupies the entire 3rd floor with a generous dressing room and large bath that opens on to what could be outfitted as a private terrace. The top floor has 3 more bedrooms and access to the roof via a proper staircase.
Located in the St. Nicholas Historic District, commonly referred to as Striver's Row, the house stands amidst a full block of yellow brick and white limestone townhouses designed in the Colonial Revival style by architects Bruce Price and Clarence S. Luce. The house shares a rear alleyway exclusively available to residents of the block allowing for private parking and rear access to the house through a charming private gated courtyard. The Row is a short distance from the A, C, 2 and 3 trains, and only a few blocks from St. Nicholas Park.
