The gracious dine in kitchen to the right of the entry hall is open and spacious. With double ovens, a large Wolf gas range, and generous island, it is ideal whether you are cooking for one or twenty, eating by the fireplace at breakfast, or with a few guests for less formal occasions. The light filled Atrium living room just off the kitchen opens to a private courtyard in front of the carriage house and is perfect for hosting 8-15 guests or just relaxing in frontof the television by the fire. Head up the grand staircase to the red living room on the second floor for a more formal dining space, or even for pre or post dinner dancing, complete with a third roaring fireplace, wet bar, and three sets of French doors to bring in a cool breeze from the courtyard. A surprisingly quiet guest bedroom overlooking East Bay Street, full bathroom, laundry room, and gracious landing are also conveniently located on the second floor. The grand master suite, complete with walk in closets, his and her bathrooms, and sitting room/guest bedroom can be found on the top floor. A fourth fireplace, beamed ceilings, and arched doorways make this a quiet and relaxing owners retreat. The rooftop deck can be accessed via the elevator, which opens to every floor.

It is also separately metered, and can be accessed through the covered walkway from East Bay Street without ever entering the main home, making it a perfect rental property as well.
