Move-in ready and gorgeously renovated, this brownstone is—at ~20 feet wide, six stories tall (plus a finished basement) and five bedrooms—impressively spacious and exudes a style that is chic and never precious. It's a home that welcomes both sophisticated entertaining and fun, casual gatherings of friends and family. There are three outdoor spaces, including a sunny, south-facing landscaped and irrigated garden. Crowning this very special home is a sun-flooded basketball/sports court and putting green to practice your short game.

The light throughout is exquisite, highlighted by the rear facade's double height glass casement windows. Numerous original details have been lovingly retained and restored, among them six wood-burning fireplaces, timeless plaster moldings and handsome oak paneling. An elevator links all seven levels—including the finished basement. Lofty ceilings and plentiful windows create an ambience of airiness and light. All six full baths have been stylishly renovated as have the two powder rooms. Nine zone CAC.
