Elegance defined in this sprawling twelve room, six bedroom home with four full baths, south-facing windowed eat-in kitchen, large formal dining room and enormous corner living room. Designed by noted architect, James. E. R. Carpenter, 550 Park was built in 1917, and is known for its grand proportions, high ceilings, large windows, detailed moldings, and intricate herringbone patterned floors, all of which have been lovingly restored in this turn-key home.
