A Garden City Colonial that has been updated and expanded since being built in 1888 is on the market for $1.799 million.
The now-3,650-square-foot home has six bedrooms, four full baths and two half-baths. A wraparound porch and a home theater with radiant heat and throwback-style wall curtains provide stylistic nods to the home’s turn-of-the-20th century roots.
Original moldings, hardwood floors, built-ins and four fireplaces have been preserved throughout. A foyer with a marble fireplace was the living room before a 1939 extension, says listing agent Sandra Shannon of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, and an open porch built around 1951 was enclosed and finished as a window-lined family room with radiant-heat tile floors.
The dining room boasts a large butler’s pantry, and an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island includes a breakfast nook with property views.
Upstairs, a master bedroom with front-facing views includes a marble fireplace, en suite bath, dressing room and walk-in closet. A third-floor loft has two bedrooms, a walk-in closet and full bath.
The 127-by-202-square foot parcel has a picket fence, mature trees, a detached two-car garage with a pergola and brick patio off the family room.
In addition to the theater, a finished lower level includes a gym, recreation room and half bath. The home has two-zone central air conditioning, three-zone gas heat and a sprinkler system.
