If painted wood bums you out, then you’ll enjoy peeking inside this 109-year-old East Side home. The four-bedroom brick house has more original wood flooring, crown molding, doors, archways, window seats, paneling, and mantels than we’ve ever seen in one place.2570Erie_10

Stained glass windows, a leaded glass door, pocket doors, a butler pantry, and period lighting and wallpaper take it over the top.

Even with all this historical drama, our favorite details are actually outside the house: The sprawling, column-flanked porch, with its swing, ceiling fans, and wraparound terrace, might just be the most comfortable spot in Hyde Park.
