I adore this house — at around 1600 sf, it’s not overwhelmingly large, yet has great high ceilings and lots of windows, making it feel spacious and bright. The rooms are well-proportioned, the floors are relatively level, and the house just feels *solid.* It’s got tons of Victorian character –great woodwork, a curved wall in the dining room, a beautiful banister and staircase– and once you peel off a few layers of “renovation” done over the years (weird tile and lino flooring, a ridiculous fake fireplace in the dining room, etc), you’d have the perfect canvas to design a gorgeous and unique home in the heart of Union Square.
