Welcome to 1516 Pine Street! This amazing c.1850’s historic brownstone was designed by Thomas Ustick Walter as part of an entire block of brownstone manor homes on Pine Street.

To the rear of the home, with a private entrance and patio off of Waverly Street, is the updated 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, 1 powder room 1,350 SF bi-level apartment (ideal for a home office, au pair/in-law apartment or a rental property for additional income).
