EAST SIXTH AVENUE

With a rich and authentically detailed exterior of brick and interlaced cut stone, this two-story Tudor home was inspired by the grand historical houses built half a century ago.  Slate-look roof tiles, a grand cast stone entry, heavy timber, wrought iron balconies, and true divided-lite windows complete the memorable exterior of this fine home.  The three-car garage is divided in two sections, and is accessed from a small auto court off the alley behind the house.  The carriage house-style doors add to the home’s historical feel.  The house has a master suite on the second floor, with two additional bedroom suites, one on each level.  The main floor also includes a large mudroom; a vaulted great room; a gourmet kitchen with a skylit nook; a formal dining room with wine room and butler’s pantry; and a study across from an intimate living room and an octagonal parlor.
