Victorian charm shines throughout this classic porchfront home with original details, warm wood accents and modern flair balanced with just the right touch of formality. The main level is full of eye-catching details, from the fun gold-and-black-tiled vestibule and exposed beam ceilings to the turned staircase and the can’t-miss pocket doors leading into the dining and kitchen area. The kitchen has been updated with duochrome cabinetry: white Shaker-style underneath the butcher block countertops and flat-front espresso-colored wood above. The definition of au courant style, the look is topped off with subway tile backsplash, white porcelain sink and stainless steel appliances including a Wolf gas range. There’s a convenient main-floor laundry/mudroom at the rear, plus a sweet little half bath with sea-green tile floor and gray beadboard vanity. Up on the second floor, pretty pocket doors reveal the huge front parlor with bay window, fireplace with wood mantel and original hardwood floors with inlaid border—this room a great option for a more casual living room and general hangout space. There’s a nicely appointed bathroom with a leaded glass window and linen closet plus two more pretty bedrooms on this level. With a nice layout and original built-in armoire, the rear room could work as the master, though we’ve got our eye on the third floor as the ultimate master retreat. A gorgeous, sunny room with park views and another built-in armoire sits at the front. You’ve got a home office or walk-in closet/dressing room in the middle and a spacious slate-tiled bathroom with dual vanity and cute corner linen closet to top it off. The nicely sized rear yard is low maintenance and ready for your backyard BBQs—add a fire pit to keep the party going through the winter months. Sitting directly across from Malcolm X Park, this fabulous home is convenient to the 52nd St strip and just a few minutes from all the dining and shops along Baltimore Ave.
