The lower level, which could function as part of the home or as a separate apartment, has front and rear exterior entrances along with access to the main staircase. The apartment, which has brick floors and exposed-brick walls, has a charming living room with a decorative fireplace, a window seat and an office alcove. The open kitchen includes white tile counters, white cabinets and a breakfast bar. At the back of this level are a bedroom, a mirrored closet with a washer and dryer and a full bath with a combination tub and shower and decorative tile detailing. This level also has a wine refrigerator.
It’s easy to picture elegant evenings spent in this home beside a glowing fireplace or enjoying the soothing hot tub on the terrace, but residents may spend most of their time savoring the joy of living in one of the city’s most interesting communities.
