Parlour Level: Up the original staircase you reach the main entertaining level. Original cherry window frames, shutters, and hardwood floors brighten the front parlour. French doors lead onto the semicircular Juliet balcony. High pressed-tin ceilings and a decorative fireplace are among many fine touches. The radiant woodwork continues throughout the center anteroom, which features a classic staircase bench along with a wet bar and powder room. Box ceilings, lustrous paneling, and stained glass accents give the rear dining room a polished look. The nearby kitchen is done in granite and has a side window. Appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Viking six-burner range.

The nearby full bath benefits from a side window – a rare feature in a New York brownstone. The rear study has high ceilings, hardwood floors, and original moldings. Another bedroom with two exposures is found in the extension.

Fourth Floor: The rear master bedroom has hardwood floors and terrific ceiling height. French doors lead to a terrace spacious enough for breakfast. Nearby flowering trees and vines make this a peaceful outdoor space – use your imagination and make it your own. The adjoining master bath has a glass shower, side window and skylight.. The front bedroom features original woodwork and floors, a spacious closet, and an en-suite full bath.
Fifth Floor: This half-level suite is perfect for a home office or student’s bedroom. Sound-deadening glass keeps this room peaceful while flooding it with sun. Original woodwork, new hardwood floors, and an adjoining bath with vaulted ceilings and a claw-foot tub make this space fabulous.
