A simple but spacious bedroom whose north-facing oversized windows give a terrific midlevel portrait of the townhouse's neighbors.
The street view side of 1871House's 2nd floor makes up the front bedroom of the Library Suite, a simple but spacious suite whose North-facing oversized windows give a terrific midlevel portrait of the townhouse's neighbors. An original marble fireplace mantle, parquet floors, and a nearly 10' ceiling form the backdrop for this wonderfully decorated, approximately 345 square foot suite.
A comfortable Ralph Lauren leather settee sits at the foot of a carved-wood queen bed with rolling-pin headboard, both of which give way to a small marble bistro table and bamboo bistro chairs. Two more marble-topped items - a Victorian washstand and Victorian dresser - complete the bedroom's primary furnishings. The prints of 18th and 19th century ante-rooms and throne-rooms along the North wall remind one of the kind of luxury that the bedroom itself hearkens back to and perhaps makes it apparent why Country Living Magazine chose to photograph the Front Library for their "Inn of the Month" feature back in the day when the 1871 House operated as a NYC-Style B&B. The Vintage bathroom is composted of a tub/shower, pedestal sink and toilet.
The Rear and Front Library Rooms Form the Library Suite which is One Full-Floor Apartment. The two rooms cannot be booked Separately.
Please note that the Fireplace is ornamental only.
