Welcome to the Isaac Meseritz mansion, a landmarked Colonial Revival house built in 1908. Architect Frank S. Lowe’s residential masterpiece greets you with a robust entry portico and two-story bay adorned with Greek-key, cartouche, and lions’ heads. The owner has taken extreme care to preserve the elegant intact Edwardian interior retaining all original features such as oak and walnut sliding doors, window surrounds, marquetry floors, plaster work, coffered dining room ceiling, library cabinetry, china cabinets, paneling, mantels, stained glass windows, and skylight. The semi-attached house is built 26 feet wide by 85 feet on a rare 40 foot wide lot with private gated driveway for parking two large vehicles. There is exceptional light and cross ventilation from 32 windows. The grand high ceilinged rooms are intended for gracious living and entertaining and offer the perfect backdrop to display art. The principal floor has an intelligent spatial flow—loft like in character—and contains the bow-fronted library, two parlors, a massive dining room, and eat-in kitchen updated with Bertazzoni range, Bosch dishwasher and a plethora of original and contemporary cabinetry—there is a Subzero refrigerator and separate under-counter refrigerator. The upper floor houses five bedrooms and two grand updated baths each with separate shower stalls. The house has partial central air and is also serviced by a second stairway and original dumbwaiter. There is a laundry room with full size washer and two dryers. Crowned by a wisteria covered pergola, the rear garden offers repose. An exceptional residence for the antique house aficionado that must be seen to be appreciated. Showings by appointment or open house. Pets accepted. Tenant responsible for all utilities. For immediate occupancy. No Broker Fee.
