Enter this pristine home and be immediately awestruck by the attention to detail and the expert reconfiguration. This apartment has been gut renovated, down to the studs, creating 6.5 rooms that seamlessly blend old world charm with modern living. Throughout the apartment, elegant oak floors patterned in herringbone alternate with straight plank, lending a contemporary feel to this prewar home. Sleek storage closets in the front hall complement this aesthetic, as do the built-in custom closets with a designated quartzite display area, double-depth coat closet plus storage, and built-in Sonos music system (throughout apartment). New windows installed in this home were fitted with the original San Remo hardware dipped in nickel, maintaining the historical significance, while increasing energy efficiency.
