Opulent 1.5BR on a landmarked park block
No broker fee! Perched on the top (fourth) floor of an opulent 26.9-foot-wide C.P.H. Gilbert-designed circa 1892 Regency-style mansion on a landmarked park block, this sprawling flat offers a seamless blend of elegant old-world craftsmanship and modern amenities. Features and amenities include meticulously-preserved original inlaid parquet floors, charming built-ins, an intricate stained-glass skylight, central air conditioning, and access to a shared washer-dryer by Miele on the second floor. Ascend the grand staircase to the top floor where you will find an inviting living/dining room with a cathedral ceiling and enchanting treetop views, a tremendous master chamber overlooking a tranquil garden with two walk-in closets and adequate space for a king-size bed in addition to ample furnishings, a separate bonus room that is perfect for a study or guest room, and an oversize mid-century bathroom.
