According to Elissa Slan, the home’s listing agent for the past 17 years, the coolest things about the townhouse—other than the fact that it’s, you know, an actual firehouse—are the “bright red archways and the cobblestone entryway that date all the way back to 1860.”
The cobblestone entryway opens up to a formal dining room, which leads to the living room with wall-length windows, heated floors, and a carved marble fireplace.
The subway-tiled kitchen features checkered floors, black granite countertops, and etched glass detailing.
An elegant dining area comes outfitted in crown moldings, tiled floors, and a crystal chandelier.
A grand carved staircase leads to an upstairs library with built-in bookcase and skylights.
Of the historic home’s four bedrooms, the upstairs master suite boasts a colossal walk-in closet and proper sitting area.
The recently remodeled townhouse also includes a hidden office, laundry room, arched garage, and a double-height solarium with lush landscaping and an al fresco lounge. With it’s storied past and one-of-kind architecture, we’re positive this iconic rental won’t stay empty for long.
