Benjamin F. Downing, the head carpenter for Richard Morris Hunt, built this home for himself at the turn of the century. His craftsmanship is particularly evident by the handsome staircase that defines the entrance foyer and beyond. Frederick Law Olmsted already in the 1870’s took multiple photographs of School Street as example of how a streetscape should look. Here at 39 School Street, open the mahogany front door and enjoy over four levels of work, entertaining and relaxation space. Walk into town for dinner and or the movies or listen to Jazz on the Top of the Roof at the Viking Hotel or the Grace Vanderbilt. Plus, there is a classic mahogany front porch, a brick driveway for two cars, a spectacular two tiered garden with blue stone hardscape, surrounded by custom wood fencing, mature trees -with up lighting - that rustle in the wind, a gas fireplace, and koi pond. Walk through the ground level door iand you have an kitchenette with quartz countertops, sink and Subzero refrigerator that works both as your second kitchen or kitchenette for the extended family nestled in the guest quarters on this level. On the other three floors you have a Gourmet kitchen, a bar with wine storage, a pantry, multiple sitting areas with custom storage options, laundry room, surround sound, and efficient gas heat and central air. The third floor entices you with a sitting room with skylight and those lovely yellow pine floors & a bedroom that overlooks the Newport Harbor in the distance.
