This phenomenal property can best be described as a grand urban compound as it combines 2 lots equaling 29x100 square feet of city space. Situated on the combined footprint of the lots is a 2 car parking pad with an electronic security gate,solid brick wall fencing, a sizable patch of green grass, a step up, 2 tiered, stone courtyard, a newly renovated carriage house and a historic Victorian townhome, completely renovated in a transitional style with original hardwood floors, exposed brick and beams. The main house is perched on the side of a hill and takes full advantage of the fact that it is an end of group house, as the owners have enhanced its southern exposure, with the addition of 17 light filled windows and 2 balconies. Within this 3000+ square feet dramatically renovated home are 3 large bedrooms each with their own beautiful bathrooms. A lower level media room comes complete with a wet bar and wine cooler plus a full sized bathroom, allowing it to be used as a 4th guest bedroom, if needed. The entire house is wired with a sound system. The main level features all wood floors and 2 fireplaces, one gas firplace, the other a wood burning Vermont Castings Stove. The scale of the rooms is grand, as the once combined living and dining room have now been opened to fit modern tastes. The kitchen is a chef's kitchen. The wood cabinets were custom handmade in Vermont. The appliances are monogram series, stainless, and include a total of 3 ovens, a wine cooler, 2 copper sinks, one bar sink with instant hot water and one in the farmhouse style. Counter seating as well as table space is available. The counters are a premium granite that compliment the upscale cabinetry and appliances. The back wall to the kitchen is virtually all glass made of oversized sliders and windows and overlooks the 2 tiered landscaped stone patio and carriage house. A gas line has been installed to the patio, for future grilling. An intricate custom stair rail system leads to the second floor bedrooms. Each bedroom is filled with lots of light from the great number of windows. A shared balcony can be found on this level. Each of the large bedrooms has its own spacious and modern bathroom. The bedroom at the rear has its very own balcony, overlooking the courtyard. Proceeding to the Master bedroom, located on the third floor, one finds an inordinate amount of light eminating from various and ovesized custom glass windows and doors. The entire third floor constitutes the master bedroom suite. The bathroom features a steam/shower combo in addition to a large 2 person open shower, custom handmade Vermont cabinetry and a jetted tub in a totally unique bathroom setting. Large oversized glass sliding doors lead to a balcony and winding staircase to a large rooftop deck, which is plumbed with water and gas lines. One gets the feeling of being on the top of the hill as it sits above the city and harbor. The Victorian Carriage House has been completely and tastfully renovated and is situated at the rear of the property overlooking both courtyards. Among its many fine features are white kitchen cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances, a full bath with shower and ample closet space. This 2 story brick Carriage House offers flexibility in its use. Ideal as a guest house, au paire/in-law suite, office, rental unit or studio. Or use it as a private space for that Son or Daughter to use as they work off their college loan debts. This property is unique in every respect.
