    Description

    C late 1800s 4 story townhome of extraordinary history (a casino and bowling alley in its youth) with magical living spaces. Stunning light, city views, courtyard, and deck, artist and woodworking studios with gallery space... and that's just the beginning. The current owner renovated the property over the past 36 years to be the environment he envisioned. A designer (and Mime) by trade, with a true gift for the artful understanding of light and space, he created an old-world house that might be in London or Paris. It feels like Peter Pan lived here.
