Wonderfully sun-filled and airy, this corner home boasts 10-foot high ceilings, abundant oversized tall windows, two sunny exposures (north and east) and open city and tree-lined block views. An open loft-like formal expanse for both living and dining is simply elegant and is exquisitely appointed with oak herringbone floors, 10’ high-beamed ceilings, pristine trim and crown moldings, built-in bookshelves, extra tall windows with wrought iron balustrades, tall solid wood doors and two decorative fireplaces. Surrounded by windows providing fantastic natural light streaming in only enhances the overall scale and beauty.

The opposite side of the home features two beautiful and serene outsized bedrooms. The master bedroom resides on a corner with two sunny exposures highlighting city and tree-lined park block views. Both bedrooms feature custom floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobe closets. The luxurious spa bathroom resides between the two bedrooms and is bathed in Calacatta Gold marble.
