This Prospect Heights Edwardian walkup has no lack of glowing original woodwork, including two mantels with mottled tile, and a laboratory-inspired modern kitchen. Located on the top floor of 207 Park Place, the unit is also quite spacious with three large bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms.

Part of a row of three, the circa 1901 Beaux-Arts limestone apartment building has a curving front with bold geometric details softened by foliate carvings. The now 10-unit four-story walk-up was advertised as "elegant" and "most select" in 1901 when seven-room apartments were available for $40 a month.

The original layout has been altered so now there are six rooms, but it still has high ceilings and plenty of original details, including parquet floors with inlaid borders, built-ins, and pocket doors. The living room overlooking the street has a bay window and carved wood mantel with columns, mirror, and green tile. The fireplace is working and wood burning, according to the listing.

Through a wide doorway is the kitchen with minimalist white and stainless steel flat-front cabinetry, dark stone counters, and green glass subway tile backsplash. There is a built-in fridge, dishwasher, and wood floors.

A pocket door leads to the dining room, originally a bedroom, with a wall of built-in shelving, projector and roll-down screen, and ceiling fan. A long hall leads to three sizable bedrooms in the rear, one of which has an ensuite half bath and large closet with laundry.

The rear bedroom, formerly a dining room, has another wood mantel with original maroon-colored tile, pocket door, and built-in glass-fronted dish cupboard and drawers. It is pictured set up as a family room.

The bathroom has a porcelain hex-tile floor, later square white wall tile with black border, clawfoot tub, and pedestal sink. There are five closets total, plus additional storage in the building.

An open house by appointment is set to take place Sunday, June 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. The monthly maintenance is $1,105. Listed by Rezwan Sharif and Helen Chee of Compass, the apartment is asking $1.775 million. What do you think of it?
