One of the many highlights of Queen Village is the neighborhood’s wealth of 20th-century bay window facades. These architectural delights jut out over sidewalks and charm with their bright colors and are iconic to this neighborhood.
This four-story, 2,153-square-foot home that recently hit the market pulls off this detail well. But you might be surprised to know that the property is only nine years old, and despite its 20th-century exterior, the interiors are sleek and modern.
Perhaps the main feature of the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath property is its industrial steel staircase that that’s featured prominently in the center of the home. From the first-floor entrance, where two bedrooms and a full bathroom are located, the stairs lead up to the second floor, which functions as the home’s main living area.
Here, the living room is bathed in light thanks to the bay windows, and the staircase separates it from the dining area and sleek kitchen. Meanwhile, the master suite takes up the entire third floor.
But while the staircase may serve as an architectural highlight, it’s the fourth floor that’s a true highlight. It features a glass pilot house with doors on either said that open to their respective roof decks: One in the front and one in the back. That means 360-degree views of the city from every angle.
The asking price of this home is $769,900.
