Old world charm abounds in this gracious & generously proportioned home that retains the beautiful classic details that make prewar construction so desirable. Originally part of a larger apt this 5-room home features the original grand public rooms & open outlook to the south.

To the left the gallery leads to the beautifully appointed living room w/ handsome wood-burning fireplace & open townhouse views facing south through oversized windows. The gallery also opens to a hallway leading to the 2 bedrooms. The corner master bedroom is nearly square in shape & has both southern & western exposures.

At the far end of the gallery, opposite the LR there is a glorious formal DR that easily accommodates a table for 12.
