Dramatic staircases come in handy, whether you’re a high school senior on prom night or a photographer looking for a Brady Bunch-esque photo opp. This Uptown Victorian boasts a grand center staircase of Gone with the Wind proportions. It’s ideal for those who want to make a memorable entrance. In fact, the entire foyer projects an almost cinematic sense of grandeur.
Cut glass double doors, twin crystal chandeliers, and floor-to-ceiling windows admit ample natural light with a touch of sparkle, while interior columns add interest and visually separate the foyer from the rest of the open living and dining area. Beyond that, you’ll find an office, kitchen, and family room. There, a wall of glass French doors admits tropical views of the covered porch and saltwater pool.
In the kitchen, amenities include quartz counters, tile floors, and sleek white cabinetry. It faces the open family area for seamless entertaining.
Upstairs, find six bedrooms, as well as rooms that could function as dens, playrooms, or offices. The master bedroom has a sizable walk-in closet, and the master bathroom continues the dramatic staircase motif with a series of steps leading to the tub. There are four-and-a-half bathrooms in the 6,181-square-foot mansion, which was built in 1918. The home still has its original mantels and hardwood floors.
And because we saved the best for last, here’s a picture of that gorgeous pool.
The asking price? $2,150,000.
