Description: A graceful flight of stairs from the sidewalk’s edge leads to the entry portico. Enter to the foyer accented with a leaded glass window and a glimpse of the gorgeous stair hall and decorative bannister. An arch opens to the triple parlor which provides flexible uses. It is shown today as a double parlor living/dining room accented by a marble-faced fireplace with a lovely carved mantel. A squared bay window provides sunny southern exposure. The third parlor makes a cheery family room and showcases exquisite decorative-wall tracery, a focal fireplace, and a tall window (may be converted to a door) with verdant views of the deck. A convenient butler’s pantry links the family room to the adjacent, eat-in kitchen which opens to the deck and garden – great for al fresco dining and entertaining. A large pantry behind the kitchen is shown as a potting room and is equipped with a stainless sink and hookups for a washer/dryer. Completing this level is a powder room discreetly tucked off the central hall.

An intricately carved bannister borders the staircase to the second level which consists of 5 rooms and two baths. The grand-scaled, master bedroom enjoys sunny, southern exposure through a virtual wall of windows and features a charming, period-style fireplace. The master opens to an ensuite bath that may be expanded into the adjacent bedroom/dressing room.  Off the hall are three more large bedrooms (one with a fireplace) and a split bath. Upstairs, there is a sunny pent room with a brick-faced fireplace and Golden Gate views.

A full basement with tremendous storage and expansion potential and two car-tandem garage has interior access. A third car may be parked in the driveway in front of the garage door.
