Casual elegance surrounds you in this classic 1844 Greek revival home in the heart of the Cobble Hill landmark district, one of only 3 Cobble Hill residences built on double lots. Its 50 feet of frontage provide for opulent proportions in all of its rooms, and its corner location, with large south and west facing windows, ensures that each room is bathed in sunlight throughout the day. The house has recently undergone a comprehensive restoration, bringing the structure and building's systems into the 21st century while retaining its many historic features, a restoration that has been honored by the American Victorian Society for its impeccable attention to detail and quality craftsmanship.

Enter the 3 story owner residence through the restored portico into a wide hallway gallery opening to the first of three high ceilinged parlor rooms, which together provide for entertaining on a grand scale, or individually serve as a more relaxed and intimate suite of rooms consisting of Front Parlor, Library and Breakfast Room, each with a southern exposure. The breakfast room opens via double French doors to the formal dining room / library and adjoins a gourmet kitchen with a free standing custom carved mahogany island with wet sink, top of the line stainless steel appliances, customs cabinets, and a hearth that can be converted to a working fireplace. Saloon mahogany doors open to the gallery / hall with dedicated lighting for artwork. There is a full bath on this level. Period details include ornately carved wooden mantels with wood burning fireplaces, floor to ceiling windows, original wood inlaid floors, plaster molding and pocket shutters that open to views of the landscaped gardens surrounding the property.

A central landing on the second floor accesses two independent bedroom suites. The master suite features a large main room, dressing area with his and hers custom closets, and an 'ultimate in luxury' bath created in subdued tones of beige and green tumbled tile with enclosed shower and a soaking tub, double sinks and separate toilet room. There is an adjoining den / sitting room with south and east windows, which also houses a large walk in closet. The guest suite, accessed by a separate stair, has a full bath and washer/dryer.

Entertain or relax in the great room, which has a wall of glass and steps to the French doors leading to a huge mahogany decked roof garden with panoramic views. There are two additional bedrooms bathed in skylight, with vast closets and storage. An additional full bath adjoins these rooms. The Great room opens via French doors to an atelier / painter's studio lit from above by 2 dormer windows and easily converted to an additional bedroom or suite of rooms.

In addition to the sumptuous owner's triplex there are 2 separate rental units: a two bedroom 2 bath on the second level, and a smaller 1 bedroom on the first floor. The rentals are accessed from an independent entrance hall and stair and while they are completely separate from the owner's quarters, the renovation was devised to allow for easy restoration to the original single family layout.

A bluestone patio off the kitchen has legal curb cut access to the street and can provide gated parking for up to 4 cars. The house is surrounded by landscaping with automatic in ground irrigation. There is a high ceilinged basement with laundry room, work shop, half bath, semi-finished home office with private entrance as well as additional rooms suitable for gym, screening room and wine cellar. The building's systems have been fully upgraded. Full details upon request.

Showings available by private appointment only.
