Create the perfect full-time residence or pied--terre from this coveted 'D-line' apartment, known for its' perfect proportions, luxurious 20-foot long entryway, and south-facing windows in every room. *Included for review & design inspiration are photographs and the floor plan of a top architect's renovation of 8D in the building.*
Spacious, pin-drop quiet, and overflowing with pre-war elegance, this apartment boasts 9.5 beamed ceilings, an open kitchen, renovated bathroom, washing machine, dishwasher, great closets, and access to a large private storage unit in the basement. Upon entering this space one is immediately drawn to the light flooding the apartment through the large south-facing windows that are an impressive 40 feet away from the front door. The oversized living room and kitchen are perfect for entertaining and the king-sized bedroom affords an elegant bedroom layout.
Unbelievably quiet for this most central location while receiving great natural light - this is not your typical first floor apartment. The South-facing windows in every room overlook the building's tranquil and rarely used planted courtyard (measuring 100' X 20'). *Attention plant lovers* the courtyard is easily accessible via apartment windows where 'personal gardening possibilities' await. There is no shortage of storage with 6 closets in the apartment, in addition to a large basement storage unit that is offered with the apartment.
