The lower-level garden duplex, measuring over 1,900 square feet, is configured as a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit but could easily be reworked into a comfortable 3-bedroom layout. The open loft-like parlor level features high, 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick, and original hardwood floors.

The floor-to-ceiling windows and extended glass door lead to a large deck, perfect for alfresco dining, entertaining, and grilling. The private garden is ideal for the urban gardener featuring an apple tree.
Before leading down the stairs to the garden level, a half bath is convenient for guests. This garden level has a second means of access under the stoop leading to a sizable hallway with ample space for storing coats, shoes, luggage, or a stroller. The sunny bedroom in the front of the garden level easily accommodates a queen-sized bed and two generous closets. There's plenty of extra room for a home office area in this room as well. In the center of the hallway, there is a full bath with a shower stall. The entire back half of this floor is configured as the primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom tub and a large walk-in closet, with additional storage and a washer/dryer area. The lower duplex has been further modernized with a mini-split A/C system for Air and Heat.

Adjacent to the living/dining area is a windowed kitchen with plentiful wood cabinetry and updated stainless steel appliances, including a GE Oven and Bosch dishwasher.

Before going up to the top level, there is 1 bedroom that can fit a full-sized bed or be used as a home office. On the top floor, there are 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath.
