This is a real two bedroom with a two bathroom apartment. It is large, open, sunny, renovated and quiet. This lovely apartment is located in a prewar building designed by the architect, Horace Ginsbern that designed the first Art Deco building in the Bronx. The building is setback with a entry pathway that leads to the building. The apartment has been renovated, while maintaining the original prewar details such as: entry foyer, high ceilings, arches, setback shelf, floor to ceiling closets throughout, basket weave wood floors and windows in each room.
The large windowed eat-in-kitchen has been renovated. It has ample cabinet, counter and storage. The highlight of this apartment is that the full washer/dryer has been “grandfathered” in. The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen. There is a Grand arch that you pass through to enter the quite spacious living room. It has is sunny with south east exposure and open city views. It has a split-bedroom design, as the primary bedroom is on the other side of the apartment. This apartment is oversized with bathroom ensuite, double floor to ceiling closets and double windows. The 2nd bedroom is sunny and it too as open views. There is a windowed elegant black and white bathroom in the hallway.
The architects of this period were famous for their setback terraces. Seasonal Rose trellis’s adorn the front of the building. The entry path has Italian hand laid bricks with a center garden with seasonal flora, plants and trees. At the end of the walkway is a Zen fountain on a hill with flora. The entrance to the building was renovated a few years ago and it has an intercom. The original windowed stone Art Deco lobby has stone floors and a staircase that ascends to the top floor with the original wooden handrail. The mail room has new mailboxes. The building has a wonderful live-in-super and a live-in assistant, individual storage (outside vendor) and a service entrance.
