Built in 1936, this French Normandy Revival in Windsor Square appears to be aging as gracefully as Catherine Deneuve. Located at 500 South Norton Avenue at West 5th Street, the well-preserved residence is a contributor to the neighborhood historic preservation zone, and comes with Mills Act tax benefits.

The three-bedroom, two and a half bath home’s got lots of other attractive qualities, such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, graceful moldings, French doors and windows, period light fixtures, built-in vanities, a working fireplace, and lovely original tile.

On a 5,505-square-foot lot with detached two-car garage, the property is listed with Jeremy Kaiser and Alyse Livingston of PLG Estates at an asking price of $2.095 million. Open houses are scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The living room is lined with multiple sets of French doors and windows.
