Situated in the Charlton, King, Vandam Historic District, this Federal-style gem of a townhouse has stood regally as a single-family home with its facade intact, never having been broken up into apartments for nearly 200 years. Originally bank-rolled by John Jacob Astor and built in 1827 on property that had been the headquarters of General George Washington in 1776, this home has survived both inside and out and today sits proudly among a long row of 19th century residences.
Its original detail still intact, the parlor floor with its high ceilings features exquisite plaster mouldings, medallions and original marble fireplaces. Sunlight streams in through tall windows and reflects off crystal chandeliers in the living and dining rooms. The dining room looks out over the sixty foot deep landscaped garden lushly planted with mature trees and a bubbling fountain; a peaceful retreat from a hectic and fast paced city.
The warm and inviting kitchen also looks out to the garden and welcomes family and friends to gather by the fire and enjoy casual dining and conversation while the adjoining den is the perfect spot to cozy up with a book or to watch a favorite movie.
Upstairs there is a master floor with original wide pine floorboards. Both the master bedroom and study are bright and spacious, each with its own original fireplace. There is a marble bathroom, dressing room, a wet bar and an oversized windowed walk-in closet.
Situated off of a lovely wide seating area at the top of the staircase are three additional sun-filled bedrooms, two with fireplaces, and another full bathroom.
The home has central air conditioning and the basement and all of its mechanicals have recently been upgraded.
Lovingly cared for from generation to generation and passed from single family to single family, Number 37 is move-in ready and awaits to greet its new caretakers.
