It is gated with off street parking. The hand turned walnut rope molding at the entry is rare & the front door is stunning. The foyer has a spectacular stairway and is flanked by a double parlor and formal dining room with a lovely three-sided bay window—all with marble mantles. A 15x9 butler’s pantry with dishwasher, a wine refrigerator and icemaker flows to an updated open concept kitchen with golden honed travertine counters, stainless appliances and tons of cabinets making this home a dream to entertain in. The kitchen is an open concept with a den. All 3 bedrooms up. Very spacious master bath with two separate private sides and fabulous closet spaces. Two offices in the property-- one up and one down offer great work spaces. Upstairs office could be a 4th bedroom. Downstairs and upstairs enclosed porches add great additional living spaces, abundant natural light, and showcase antique painted finish. You can see the RSA tower from the upstairs porch. Wonderful enclosed sunroom with fireplace is a perfect place to relax. Added features are a patio with fountain and a 22x7 orchid house. This historic gem can be yours.
