The streetview side of 1871House's 2nd floor makes up the Front Library, 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 suite'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 Front Library 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.
Please note that the Fireplace is ornamental only.
