Soaring ceilings, carefully stripped woodwork, original moldings, two bay windows, and stained glass in every window are but some of the highlights of this two bedroom, two bath parlor level condo. One of many rare features is garden level entry. This increases the SF of the parlor level creating space for a well proportioned study. The majestic master bedroom has a bay window with restored stained glass, working shutters, built in bookcase and ample closet space. Two well appointed baths separate the bedrooms. The second bedroom is generous in size and features an interior wall comprised of a grand pocket door containing an equally impressive stained glass scene. The kitchen is fitted with custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, a breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher. The living room centers around a stately mantel flanked by a window and door on the westerly detached portion of the building. This allows for a fourth window increasing the already abundant natural light. The door opens onto a modest balcony that leads to a serene, private garden. Video intercom, four closets, central heat/air, private storage & laundry in the basement give modern convenience to this classic home. Bamboo floors, contemporary kitchen & baths, and a natural gas burning fireplace are elegant complements to the historic aspects of the space. Enjoy the benefits of J-51 tax abatement.
