The European garden stairs meander up from the sidewalk, across the front of the house, and up to a gated entry and an east-facing courtyard landscaped with boxwood hedges and flowers.
Glass doors open to an elegant foyer with dark parquet floors, a crystal chandelier, graceful staircase, powder room, and an elevator.
The Living Room, with glass pocket doors, has exquisite detailing: ornate plaster ceiling beams, picture frame moldings, floor to ceiling doors that open to metal balconies, and a wood burning fireplace with a contemporary mantle that sets the tone for the Transitional decor of the home.
