This house is just beautiful. Everything is in exquisite taste and perfectly renovated, from the kitchen tiles that complement the fireplace opposite, from the pops of color here and there to the beautifully highlighted gothic windows in the bedrooms. We particularly love the Adnet chairs in the living room, the Saarinen chairs in the dining area, and the midcentury sideboard made into a bathroom vanity unit. The house and its owners were featured in the New York Times a couple of weeks ago; after paying $1.8M for the house in 2006, the couple spent about $2M on renovations. Now the asking price is $3.95M. That doesn't seem unreasonable, but the only house in the neighborhood that's sold for that much recently was 36 Lewis St, which was purchased by Brooke Shields last year, and that house and plot is slightly bigger. This house, c. 1890s, sports four bedrooms and 3.5 baths in 3600sf. There is 0.41 acre of land with a pool and pool house.
