Striver's Row Townhouse
Residence and Location
Original architectural details and 21st century amenities combine in this single-family townhouse restoration. This light-filled house is located in the middle of the tree-lined block on historically significant Striver’s Row. It is one of a solid row of homes designed by the firm of McKim, Mead and White. Each house is set back from the street allowing for individual front gardens enclosed by distinctive iron work. A unique feature of these homes is the private back alley which affords rear access to a private parking space and landscaped garden.
Entrance to the house is through a sunny sitting room with an original fireplace. A chef’s kitchen with a hidden dumbwaiter that serves the dining room above, breakfast room and powder room complete this level. There is access to the garden and parking space through the rear door.
A grand parlor with an original fireplace and a Juliet viewing balcony, library with a hand-crafted wood stair bench and dining room with an original fireplace and dumbwaiter closet combine to make a grand entertaining space.
This floor has master bedroom with an original fireplace, generous storage and ensuite bath plus a second bedroom with ensuite bath.
This floor has 2 additional bedrooms, both with ensuite baths, plus a laundry room.
The basement has generous storage and houses the mechanicals.
