This is a beautifully preserved and maintained brick and stone Tudor home. Original details have been scrupulously retained. 3 bedroom, 1.2 bath. The solid plank entrance door with leaded glass windows is original to the house as are the interior doors and all hardware. Gorgeous large scale cove moldings frame the living and dining rooms and there are charming archways between the major living area rooms with matching alcove arches over the bathtub and kitchen window (retained during a mid-life kitchen remodel which resulted in a super efficient chef's kitchen including a 900 CFM exterior discharge exhauster). Additionally, the original finished of the main floor bath have been lovingly preserved. Both first and second floors have hardwood flooring presently protected by carpeting and both floors have plaster walls and ceilings. There are three bedrooms (two on the main floor), one with full bath and two half baths. A very large bedroom is on the second floor along with a 1/2 bath easily expandable into a full one. The balance of the second floor contains a large fully finished storage closet and a great deal of attic storage space (of which the front area with two windows could potentially be a fourth bedroom or an office/library.) The full basement is functionally zoned: a second kitchen (regularly used for outdoor entertaining) with laundry area, food and wine storage room, shop area, storage, toilet room, and a large carpeted office (with direct rear outside garden access) closeable by sliding shoji. The large oversized lot is professionally landscaped, from the front stone masonry terrace (on a foundation) to the breathtakingly beautiful rear yard and gardens with two patios: a large one near the house and a small "hidden garden" cocktails patio at the rear. This will be your private sanctuary in the city: your personal botanic garden. Tree and bush plantings range from mature to newly installed, from conifers and deciduous specimens to spring flowering trees and shrubs. The gardens contain a huge quantity of perennials; including many roses, lilies and hostas and spring bulbs and wildflowers. The oversized garage has space for two large cars and lots of storage.
