Floor Plan


Circa 1877 Only a handful of homes face Lafayette Square Park & only one was built by the steamboat Captain Horace Bixby (mentor of Mark Twain) which sets the stage for the remarkable dwelling that unfolds within its storied walls. Meticulously updated & remodeled w/ items curated to honor its significance & provenance. All the bells & whistles of modern living drenched in detail w/ medallioned ceilings & stunning sunrises from the private primary veranda. Millwork has been painstakingly restored, original light fixtures, sweeping stairwells rebuilt & repurposed original materials. An entertainer’s dream from parlor to patio w/ rooftop garden deck for outdoor entertaining to built-ins & butler’s pantry, add to original elements of pocket doors, elegant fireplaces. Banked in bedrooms a mid-level lounge is a haven for unwinding. A breathtaking façade overlooks the park & the new brick garage w/ spiral stairwell & garden deck raise the roof for outdoor enjoyment & complete the package.
