Brown Harris Stevens | Established 1837


213 Congress Street - $6,375,000

Contract Signed

This classic Federal era townhouse stands apart on a prime North Cobble Hill block. Behind its pristine facade, it totals over 4000 square feet of relaxed elegance. The house has been comprehensively restored to marry the grandeur of a 25-foot wide 1840s townhouse with the convenience of modern living. In its current use as a single family home, it has 5 bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms and a home office on the upper two floors; with a grand double parlor, eat-in kitchen, den, laundry room and additional half bath on the lower two floors.

The entrance floor has 12 foot ceilings, a wide vestibule with mosaic tile, and spacious parlors. The sumptuous parlors are separated by period pocket doors which when open form a grand entertaining space, or can be closed for more intimate gatherings. The front parlor has a working fireplace with a marble mantle and other historic details. The rear parlor, used as a formal dining room with side bar and service counter, overlooks a 60-foot garden shaded by a mature magnolia tree.

The garden floor includes a state of the art eat-in kitchen, a family room with wood burning fireplace and restored marble mantle, a mud room, laundry room, and newly renovated powder room. French doors in the kitchen lead to the garden, which is beautifully landscaped and private with the magnificent magnolia as its centerpiece. The garden includes two levels of bluestone patio, wrought iron fence, gas-line grill, irrigation system and access to the parlor floor.

A finished basement with wine cellar and storage completes the picture. The house has three-zone central air conditioning, and all appliances and HVAC units were replaced in 2009. Other amenities include all new windows, 8 fireplaces (four wood burning), intercom system, and alarm system.
