Lonely Planet review

This elegant, red-brick row house is a family home dating from 1832 – and it’s perfectly preserved both inside and out. Home to a prosperous merchant family, the Tredwells, for nearly a century, the place is in mint condition, allowing you to step back in time through the formal Greek Revival parlors featuring mahogany pocket doors, bronze gasoliers and marble mantelpieces. Bedrooms reveal plenty of other luxuries, from fine antique furniture to a display of dresses, shoes and parasols.
