1 Florence St Unit 7
Northampton, Massachusetts, 01053 $299,000
Downton Abbey, the Biltmore, Monticello, Bellevue Avenue in Newport RI… What do these have in common with the Village of Leeds? Nothing… zip… nada.… zilch. Unless, you are one in a million, a rare bird, a prince/princess/other among humans. Consider, (if you have the patience to mount two imperial flights of oaken staircase), 1 Florence Street, unit 7. A place so majestic you may compare it to a museum’s soaring galleries, with such astonishing views that you may feel like an Eagle has transported you to its mountain top rookery. Nine rooms, 1.5 baths, 3 bedrooms, including a gothic-timbered billiard room. Designed in the Eastlake late victorian style that emphasized scale and elaborate decoration. A fine spiral staircase will take you to a private (heated) tower room, with a rooftop deck and a fully panoramic view. The mansion sits on a sizable piece of land located on a hilltop overlooking the Village, close to Northampton Center and a myriad of transport options.
