Rare chance to purchase half of a town house condo. The next best thing to owning a whole house. Beautiful 3BR apartment. Monthly charges are preposterously low ($278/mo). The apartment has been totally gut renovated. Either as a home or an investment, it does not get much better than this. Very close to all transportation and parks. Can reinstall fireplace. Building has plenty of additional FAR available, so many possibilities for how to use it.
Follow the front steps of the building up to a private entrance. No one else uses this door. Perfect place to leave shoes, coats, bikes, etc. Stairs lead up to the first floor of the apartment. A beautiful open kitchen with all new cabinetry and granite countertops is the centerpiece of the entertaining flow. The U-shaped counter is perfect for cooking, eating or chatting. Space at either end of the building allows for multiple configurations. The lower space can all be opened up as for entertainment, allowing for a separate living and dining room, or it can be configured as a three bedroom. Amazing southern light streams in making the apartment welcoming and cheerful. There is a bathroom on this level as well.
An open staircase with a skylight above leads to the upper floor with two spacious split bedrooms. Another bath and a laundry room complete the floor. The Master Bedroom has abundant closet space: 2 closets and 3 overhead storage spaces. The southern light is brilliant.
A perfect mix of the two New York City aesthetics: the classic prewar and the industrial loft. Every detail has been thought of to make this space a true home. The entire apartment has white oak hardwood floors which magnifies all the light. The brick on the two lateral walls has been exposed and each brick immaculately cleaned. All walls and ceilings have been meticulously skim coated to perfection. When one looks around the wall is not seen as the eye cannot find a blemish to stop on; only color is perceived. The effect is sublime. Classic baseboards tie walls to floor in an elegant balance.
