About 685 East 22nd Street

Perfectly situated on a lovely, green 50 x 100 corner property, this extraordinary 3,860 Square Foot, 6 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath Victorian house with a Two Car Garage feels like a luxurious, private compound!
Built at the turn of the century with only a few owners to date, 685 East 22nd Street has a wealth of remarkably preserved original detail combined with the most beautiful design and renovation making it the coveted combination of old and new.
From the minute you enter the front gate of this private oasis the feeling of sanctuary is palpable. Lush green grass and lovely, mature plantings and trees line the border of the front and side of the property adding to the feeling of being in your own world. Hydrangeas, Magnolia, Peonies and Dogwoods to name a few, bloom in a staggered sequence throughout the Spring and Summer creating an amazing show of color. The inviting enclosed porch, with wall to wall windows and plenty of room for comfy furniture, is the ideal place to delight in the views of your bucolic outdoor space all seasons, while also functioning as a great transition space from the outdoors into the home. The adjacent covered outdoor porch is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.
Two, beautiful, original sets of oak and glass doors welcome you into the stunning entry foyer where breathtaking original detail surrounds you. Coffered ceilings, a fireplace with an Arts and Crafts mantel flanked by leaded glass built-ins with intricate stained glass windows above, multi-patterned parquet floors, and the original Engelnook with built-in storage benches. Off of the foyer is the living room with a bay of windows overlooking the tree lined street and beautiful, delicate plasterwork on the ceiling. The foyer flows into the elegant dining room (big enough for a table that seats 8 or more) with another fireplace with ornately-carved mantel, tall wainscoting with the original anaglypta insets, and another stunning stained glass window.
Off of the dining room is a convenient, newly renovated powder room. The big, eat-in-kitchen is perfect for family life and entertaining and has abundant, hand crafted, hard wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a five burner stove, double door refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave.

The second bedroom has two sets of bay windows that flood the room with natural light and a wall of custom built in shelving and cabinetry that make it a perfect home office. The third bedroom has another bay of windows and a cozy, built-in, wall-to-wall window seat. The second bath has another Carrara marble top vanity, subway tile with Carrara marble trim, Kohler deep soaking tub with overhead and handheld shower.
The dramatic third floor has soaring, 16' vaulted ceilings, gorgeous, rustic exposed beams, and three huge, venting skylights, is home to another three, huge rooms, two of which are bedrooms and the third an amazing media/family room with built in cabinets and drawers that doubles as a second home office as well as a workout space. The third floor bath has a huge skylight with views of the treetops and sky, a big, glass enclosed shower and pedestal sink, each with Grohe finishes.
