Situated on a gorgeous,oversized, city lot w/ river views, the striking sandstone residence at 522 Crescent St seems to command your attention and beckons one back to a more opulent era.
This home has the elaborate detail that one would expect in classic Victorian architecture- inside(high ceilings,wainscotting,lg rooms,many windows) and out. .
522 Crescent St was owned for generations by the same family until it was sold.
Most recently it was an owner occupied antique shop. To say it has impressive curb appeal seems to be an understatement.
The solid sandstone home boasts turrets,columns supporting the expansive wrap around porches,gable roof(shingles new 2014) ,eyebrow window, fishscale & other ornate patterned wood siding & a backdrop of cast iron fencing & gate.
Enter the front of the home you'll find the main floor has a double LR,DR,kit,(typical victorian utilitarian)library/den and 1/2 bath.
You'll find HD WD floor, wide,front & rear staircases, 2 wood FP and impressive palladian window.Second floor has large foyer,4 spacious BR (3 w/Fireplaces) one w/ attach bath (needs repair),the main full bath & laundry rm w/ 1/2 bath)
Third floor is as expected, more modest in design (generally the 3rd floor was for the staff) has recently been used as storage but there are 4 BR & a Kit & bath (which haven't been used in decades).
Cellar is also sectioned into rooms-furnace room,workshop etc.
Garage accommodates 2 cars (one behind the other). While work is needed to completely restore this striking residence it to all of its previous grandeur - it's Priced to sell.
