This spacious two bedroom/two bathroom is located in a 1940′s elevator building that was being constructed before the war and was completed after the war. The architectural style of the interior is quite special. The building was featured on HGTV’s “House Hunters”. This apartment unit rarely comes on the market for sale and/or rent. It has been updated while keeping the original prewar details i.e. high ceilings, archways, set back shelving, wood panel floors, entry, ample floor to ceiling closets and windows in each room.
This apartment is sunny with south east views. It is spacious and has a sensible layout. When you enter the apartment you immediately notice the grand archway. The windowed kitchen has wooden cabinets and granite counter top. Adjacent to the windowed kitchen is the gracious dining room. The master bedroom has a marble bathroom ensuite with Italian fixtures and utilities, large closet and two windows. The second bedroom is windowed and has a large closet. The second bathroom has a couple of charming prewar details. Refurbished wood floors are throughout the apartment. There is also a built-in book case.
