The Federal-style townhouse, built in the early 1900's, is brimming with old world character and enjoys a rich history. It was originally built for prosperous builder George Washington Backer. The exterior is distinguished by two striking limestone columns at the entry and a red brick facade. Gracious interiors boast a timeless blend of period details, modern elements and generously-sized rooms, creating a perfect backdrop for opulent living and entertaining. The spectacular original woodwork, moldings, door framing and wainscoting, warm exposed brick and wood beams, exquisite fireplaces (2 working), stained glass accents and soaring generous parlor floor ceilings are among the special elements that heighten the charm. Outdoor space is as alluring, afforded by a quaint garden off the gourmet kitchen, a lovely sitting terrace off the primary bathroom, a balcony off the 3rd floor suite, and a huge rooftop that can be developed with a potential landscaped deck, etc. to become your custom urban oasis.

The location is outstanding, within 100 yards of St. Nicholas Park and Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and minutes to Jackie Robinson Recreation Center with an outdoor pool and public gym.
