Iconic Kingston mansion just a 3 minute walk to the Stockade District (where the excitement is for history, style, great food and drink) Here one can actually have an acre of land with this gracious, beautiful, high ceiling home. When it was originally nominated for designation, it was noted on the National Register of Historic Places as; “Architecturally significant as an important local example of Italianate style residential architecture...is an outstanding example of its type and an important reminder of the opulence and social status once previously associated with this neighborhood.” In the interior of the house there is a broad central hall with flanking formal parlors. (LR and FR) Moldings, trim, doors and unique covered plaster ceilings remain in excellent condition throughout these spaces. The second floor plan of the house features a central hall with flanking chambers and 2 full baths. Like the first floor, finishes throughout these spaces survive largely intact.” The home remains gracious and impressive in its simple elegance and scale, including the tall ceilings. There is a former "staff" stairway leading to the kitchen (one the finest custom kitchens you will ever see... It was actually imported from England) and even houses a wine cooler, sub-zero and Thermidor. This stairway is in addition to the grand Central staircase from the front foyer to the second floor landing. There are several rooms in the basement (not counted in room or square footage counts here) which obviously were once integral to the home's workings. They include one with a fireplace and mantel (photo below), additional half bathroom (not currently counted or working) and, in the framing, rough plumbing remains of an additional large bathroom with no walls, or fixtures installed. Basement rooms might now make excellent home offices, a laundry, gym, sauna, or storage areas. VIEW A VIDEO TOUR by clicking on the link https://youtu.be/3JgoYC_rS2c
