19th Century Old Town Home And Former Art Studio (PHOTOS)

Once known as the Carl Street Studios, a home in the Old Town neighborhood with a rich history is now for sale.

This home was originally built in 1880, but real estate developer Sol Kogen partnered with artist Edgar Miller to transform this building into a work of art in the 1930s. Miller used this building as his art studio and added stained glass windows, carved doors, sculptures, mosaics and frescoes.

With 5,500 square feet of artsy living space, this the space includes three units transformed into one home with three floors and a basement.

Aside from its historic value, the home also includes stone floors in the foyer, a Victorian tiled powder room, mirrored art, a dramatic grand staircase and private rooftop deck.

The 3 bedroom, 3.2 bath home is located at 155 Burton Place and it is currently located at $1.8 million.
