There are many special things about the home at 166 Henry Street, near Duboce Triangle. It was built sometime around 1898 and still includes carefully carved fireplaces, decorative Greek Revival millwork, and lots of stained glass. The kitchen is vintage, but also beautiful and architect designed, featuring a pink 1960s gas stove. A glassed-in dining area sits practically among the palm and walnut trees of the backyard. Upstairs, however, things really get good. An oak and fir spiral staircase leads to the attic, where a romantic A-frame space used as a bedroom sits right among the tops of the trees.
164 Henry Street, a rental unit housing long-term tenants, also comes included in the sale. It occupants currently pay $2,410/month in rent for a two-bedroom garden unit. The main owners' unit has an additional three bedrooms, including the attic space master suite and a self-contained second master suite described as a "treehouse studio." Even the bathroom that is pictured manages to be interesting, with a clawfoot tub, a vintage light fixture, and some sort of old-fashioned shower contraption. The home hasn't hit the MLS yet, but will later this week with an official asking price of $3.5 million.
UPDATE (4/11/15): The listing agent has revised the price upward to $4.25 million because, agent Kevin Ho tells us, "we found out there's a lot more square footage than we had thought earlier."
