Luxurious Private Townhouse Living This historic 22' x 53' mid-nineteenth century townhouse currently set up as 2 condominium units; a garden duplex and upper triplex, also offers an exceptional opportunity to create a gracious, well-proportioned single family home.
Located in Lamartine Place Historic District, this five story townhouse in North Chelsea sits on a 22' x 110' lot. Originally built in the Greek Revival Style, the house still maintains many of the characteristics of the period with its brownstone base, brick facade and raised stoop with iron handrails. Renaissance Revival cornices were added around the turn of the century and remain intact.
The classic proportions and original interior details such as wide plank wood floors, exposed brick walls and wood burning fireplaces have been retained with the utmost care in the renovation and modernization of both units, which have open, updated floor plans. Bright, airy and spacious with north and south exposures, this house is set back 21' from the sidewalk offering privacy and serenity upon entering the yard through the iron gate.
The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom garden duplex can be accessed through its own separate garden level entrance or through the front entryway on the parlor floor. The parlor level features a 700 sq. ft. living dining room with soaring 12' ceilings, built-in book cases and a wood burning fireplace off of a large, open chef's kitchen with bamboo cabinets, stainless steel appliances and Dune granite countertops.
