Rarely does a townhouse of this caliber, in this charming and coveted historic neighborhood, come to market.

The lower level with a laundry area and boiler room can accommodate a family room, den, home office or third bedroom.
This second level is uniquely laid out with 2 spacious bedrooms: the south-facing master bedroom features a walk-in closet/dressing room, and the second bedroom overlooks the backyard, and has a functional vintage cast iron bathtub adding a touch of historic integrity.
The second duplex apartment, entered via the main door and up an interior set of stairs, features a large living room with southern exposure, tasteful crown moldings, original ceiling medallions, a decorative fireplace and other classic details. The roomy kitchen overlooks the backyard and a full bath occupies the third floor.
