Built in 1904, the three-story house features restrained elements that were, at the time of construction, a major deviation from the over-opulent Beaux Arts period that was coming to an end. Along a private street in a coveted neighborhood, No. 23 is one of twenty-three homes that were built between the years of 1903 and 1906.
