It may stand on Walnut Street, but this attached town home pays homage to mahogany and oak.
The foyer floor is an arresting striped mix of the two hardwoods — a pattern repeated in inlays in this 4,311-square-foot Brookline home, which is on the market for $1,925,000.
A testament to the Victorian Gothic style of the 1840s, 169 Walnut St., Unit 1, also features hand-carved fireplace mantels, ceiling medallions, period lighting, and crown molding. The home offers seven bedrooms, 4.5 baths (the half bath used to be an elevator), and five fireplaces: in the master suite, the living and dining rooms, and in bedrooms on the second and third floors. The master suite also has a French balcony.
The eat-in kitchen has been modernized (the circular island lends extra prep area and seating), but the red potbelly stove gives the space a charming period touch. One can access the two-tier deck and private fenced-in backyard from the kitchen.
The lower level has a playroom, a laundry room, a cedar closet, storage, and a new full bath.
The unit comes with garage parking for one vehicle.
The listing agent is Jayne Bennett Friedberg of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
