This definitive Bolton Hill home is a masterpiece of restored and preserved Victorian era elegance. The meticulous care for the original details, millwork and ornate punctuations, is obvious, from the intricate ceiling roses, to the high-relief molding and the unique dentil crown of almost every room. The marvel of nineteenth century craftsman and artisanship is endless: grand mirrors atop marble mantles, striped hardwoods, the breathtaking three-quarter staircase with detailed finials and newels, pocket-doors throughout, and the absolute stunner... the open three- story light shaft brightening most of the home.
Through the front doors, the 20’ width and 13’ ceilings are immediately impressive. Off the foyer one finds a formal living room, sun-filled from two 9’+ windows, leading to a parlor which continues directly into the large formal dining room, the open, front-to-back sight line is a rare feature for the block. The original pocket-doors allow for more intimate settings if desired. The floorplan lends itself to endless kitchen expansion possibilities.
From the dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to a tasteful updated kitchen. Although compact, its design is extremely precise, maximizing counter-space and sunlight.
Upstairs, the charm continues. A large bedroom and shared bath occupy the rear of the second floor; a three room den (or additional bedroom) wraps around the front.
The third floor hosts the second bedroom, another shared full bath and a large owners’ suite complete with updated bath, sun-filled bedroom, antechamber and large walk-in closet.
Beneath it all, the large basement has been remodeled into a walk-out Au Pair/ guest suite with new full bath, large living space, private laundry and bedroom.
In the rear, a newly built, arched and gated brick wall creates a two-car parking pad and gives room for the quaint garden next to the two tiered patio and back porch off the kitchen.
