The interior, which originally mirrored the interior of 29, retains the Colonial staircase with its Palladian window. The living room is in the front and the dining room is behind it; all of the openings are framed by pedimented Greek Revival casings. Number 33 was expanded in the early part of the twentieth century. Instead of windows at the east end of the dining room, a short stairway leads down to a rich and inviting library. This room has a beamed ceiling, wood-mantel fireplace, built-in bookcases, and walls covered in oil paper.
