The 2,031-square-foot home was built circa 1900 but fully renovated to include an office, wet bar, and custom closets. The home offers three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and Mario DeCristofaro of the Gorfinkle Group at eXp Realty have listed it for $1,695,000.

Inside, beiges and grays meet cream and black accents for a modern but cozy atmosphere. Hardwood floors, tile laid herringbone style, and board-and-batten walls add simple-yet-elegant textures throughout the space, which is illuminated by a variety of modern chandeliers.

The front door opens to the main level, which includes the home’s dining and living rooms, kitchen, and half bathroom. The dining room has gray walls and a bay window that sheds light on an illuminated wine wall. The open floor plan flows into the living room, which features a gas fireplace clad in shiny black brick. Built-in shelving provides storage below the mantel.

Next comes the kitchen, which has herringbone floors and the same gray walls as the rest of the main level. White Shaker-style cabinets provide storage space above and below quartz counters and stainless steel appliances. Floating shelves, exposed brick, and a herringbone backsplash add to the charm of the space.
