Property size: 12,230-square-foot brownstone has eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and one half-bathroom and an attached garage with off-street parking for an additional two vehicles.

Unique features: This charming brownstone that reaches over four levels in Mount Vernon has fairy-tale appeal, from its steeply pitched roof to its arched doorways and windows to the decorative iron railing on the porches, windows and doors.

The storybook feeling continues indoors with floors made from marble and hardwoods, decorative pedestals, generous crown moldings and an entranceway chandelier that exudes glamour. Other Old World amenities include multiple fireplaces, a stained glass skylight and a sweeping staircase with intricately carved newel posts.

But the home’s owners haven’t forgotten to include modern comforts, from the full-sized elevator to central air-conditioning to the paved patio that’s perfect for al fresco dining or entertaining.

1126 N. Charles St. is the hot property this week.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been fully modernized. The main kitchen features stainless steel Viking appliances, the master bathroom opens to a large walk-in closet and the finished basement includes a bar area.

There’s a home theater, a basement gym, a mechanical room for the elevator and industrial sinks in the laundry room. The current owners have installed a whole house generator, a central vacuum, and a five-area heating zone system.

Though the town house currently is a residence, it is zoned for commercial use.
