Like A Country Cottage in the City
This unique duplex one-bedroom home is artistically and impeccably designed with the privacy and warmth of a country cottage. At entry there is a long view through the arched doorway and across the dropped living room with original wrought iron rails to the wide south-facing windows. The kitchen renovation is done in sunset colors with wood cabinetry, and ceramic floor & counter tops. Up the decorative spiral stairs to the second level is a generous master suite with the feel of a loft: arched doorway & wrought iron rail, custom wood & glass stair enclosure and beautifully refinished hardwood floor. There is a separate office, a sitting area, a maid's pantry with built-ins and a second full bath upstairs. The paint, detail and decor throughout the apartment stay true to the pre-war era of the building. Filled with charm and special touches, this home is more than just an apartment. The impressive building has art deco lobby with murals and is located steps from the #1 train at 242nd Street. Must be seen to be appreciated.
