For $1.9 million, a Brookline town home with an artful take on hardwood floors

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.
