This generously-proportioned studio apartment in prime Central Harlem is positively surprising, as its 526 square feet of space feels even larger thanks to high 9'6 ceilings and large light-filled windows! The gracious layout is complemented by beautiful bamboo floors and premier finishes that add modern elegance in a meticulously-restored Beaux-Arts building. The open kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances including a dishwasher easily serves the living area. Other highlights include a white Carrera marble bathroom with an oversized glass-enclosed shower, and a convenient in-home washer/dryer.An architectural masterpiece restored to its original 1920 beauty, 2056 Fifth Avenue is a handsome red brick and limestone residence with brand new luxury interiors at the corner of 127th Street. The allure of history is embodied in this treasured building that formerly served as a meeting hall for the Finnish community in Harlem then as Gospel Church. Amenities include electronic doorman service, a fitness center, onsite storage and a common courtyard with BBQ. Located in one of New York's most sought-after neighborhoods, offering a community feel without being too far from all the conveniences. Within blocks you can access the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 subway lines, as well as Metro North. Also minutes away is The Social Corner, Chez Luicenne, Cove Lounge Red Rooster and the soon-to-come Whole Foods.
