The Albemarle Road house could stun with a few upgrades

An expansive standalone Victorian on a stretch of Albemarle Road that the New York Times has called “one of the grandest residential streets in the whole city” is looking for a new owner.

The 13,000-square-foot property at the corner of Rugby Road shares a common border with the magnificent house purchased by actress Michelle Williams in 2015 that, as of June 2018, Williams was still in the process of rehabbing.

From the looks of it, 1406 Albemarle Road could also use some updating—drop ceilings be gone!—though the 6,000-square-foot house still stuns with architectural details like original millwork and two turrets that create rounded entertaining spaces and bedrooms.

The six-bedroom property is currently set up as a legal one-family and office space, providing four separate entrances. That office space is on the house’s first floor with entrances off of its private driveway (that culminates in a standalone two-car garage) and is only connected to the main residence through a door in the house’s first floor library. The main floor also consists of an eat-in kitchen, living room, dining room, and powder room positioned around a central foyer.

The closed off eat-in kitchen connects to the house’s dining room.

The upper two floors give way to six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two terraces, a game room, and a walk-in cedar closet. The unfinished basement covers the whole footprint of the house, providing additional storage. It’s also where the home’s laundry room is currently set up.

The property is on the market with Jack Sardar of Madison Estates for $3.799 million.

A large bedroom takes advantage of the house’s unusual shape.
