The townhouse at 19 Downing Street might not be popping up in many design magazines any time soon, but the art-filled, lived-in space might be just the thing to hook a buyer looking for a family home downtown. The 3,600-square-foot house includes four or five bedrooms—depending on whether or not the study is converted—and four bathrooms, along with a kitchen that has been updated, but not to the most luxurious standard. Still, the house has so much charm, between the high tin ceilings, moldings, and numerous orignal fireplace mantles, that the shortcomings are quickly forgiven. Three levels of the home enjoy outdoor space, with a roof deck crowning the top level, but the next owner will have to hoof their way up, as there's no elevator. With all that in mind, is $6.9M too much to ask for this house of charm?
