Upstairs you have three stunning open floor through living levels which all enjoy the home’s 25 foot width and depth, spaces more like that of a Soho loft and unlike many townhouse homes which have narrow widths and more chopped up spaces. This first level is comprised of a front living room with a wood burning fireplace and custom library, a guest bathroom, and an outstanding chef’s kitchen with island that opens to a dining area and 400 square foot landscaped terrace. This floor is amazing for those who wish to entertain!
Continuing upstairs is a master bedroom suite on one end and three additional bedrooms separated by a gorgeous staircase and walkway. This layout is ideal, giving privacy to the master suite with opposite end bedrooms for families and others who wish to have primary bedrooms on the same floor.
On the top floor are two additional bedrooms, a bathroom and a 1300 +/- square foot south facing rooftop which is eagerly waiting to be converted into a spectacular outdoor deck with plantings, seating and barbeque areas.
