Giant arched windows with southern and western exposures provide an abundance of natural light, and sweeping views drawing your eyes right down to Duane Park. The home also features original exposed wood beams, two wood-burning fireplaces, and dark-stained rift oak floors add to the classic Tribeca charm of this 6-bed/7-bath residence.
