Although built in 1968, this handsome rowhome still manages to fit in with its historic 19th century Gold Coast neighbors. The understated brick exterior is by no means offensive and hardly conveys the concealed elegance within. The four-story, four-bedroom structure received a major rehab a few years back and now sports “French-modern” decor by local designer Scott Himmel.

Standout features include a large and upgraded kitchen, four fire places, cedar closets, plenty of windows, and a wood-paneled library with a wet bar. The property also includes a rear patio and walled-in garden from landscape architect Doug Hoerr, a rooftop deck, and a tandem two-car garage.

The property was listed for sale in 2013 for $3.5 million before taking a series of price cuts. It was even available for rent in 2014 for $12,500 a month. It returned to the market yesterday seeking $2.6 million.
