The Gold Coast is so flush with elegant homes, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. But this lively Italianate row house refuses to be just another card in the deck. She's aiming for ace of spades status. Brand new to the market, the 1882 four-bed gem is asking $1.88M. Inside, the ultra-classic sitting room with its rich blue walls, gold trim, crown molding, and regal draperies, has us in rapt attention. And the bold color scheme doesn't stop there. There's an orange-sherbert-tinted family room that could definitely use some toning down as well as a pink-hued bathroom. We count six different wall colors among nine rooms. While everyone's got their own take on paint choices, the high-end finishes are unimpeachable. The 3,700-square foot residence features original woodwork, four fireplaces, hardwood floors, family room, marble bathrooms, and a rear deck atop the garage. And it's right around the bend from Washington Square Park.
