The brick garden, a wonderful oasis, is accessed either from the kitchen or on the side near the driveway. This owner has a combination of period antiques and Asian influences- which points out how flexible this space is for all aesthetic styles. There is a first floor bedroom and bath for au pair or guests. You could easily add a kitchen and rent this area out as the property is a legal 2 family. The second floor has two large bedrooms, each with a fireplace and second floor sitting room also with fireplace. The third floor serves well as a fantastic master bedroom suite. Battery Park and other waterfront activities are only a block away but no flood insurance required.
