This newly-renovated brownstone preserves the best of the building’s original features with updated elements for modern luxury. The grand spiral staircase leads to a dedicated entertaining level with formal dining and living rooms. The 14-foot ceilings and ornate chandeliers make this floor a standout, painted a summery yellow with white accents. On the 6th floor, past the master suite is a level with two oversized rooms, laundry, and a full bath, which can act as a private guest suite within the home. If that’s not enough privacy for you, there’s also an au-pair suite and private elevator to reach all those floors. White accents throughout create a modern vibe, and French doors and large windows keep the whole home filled with light. The family room’s built-in shelving and fireplace give this large space a cozy, homey feeling.

The home also features offer a fresh air escape during the spring and summer months. After hosting guests in the dining room, retreat to the roof deck overlooking the river, or enjoy drinks in the loggia on the enclosed yard. The roof deck’s views of the skyline are unbeatable, but enjoying the sun from the ground level deck facing the Charles is an equally tempting summer afternoon activity.
