We restored this building and its filled with loving residents that value classic homes over the plastic-beach apartment boom.

This unit was tastefully restored throughout- oak hardwoods have a pickled white finish, millwork has been high-glossed with several coats of varnish over its dark walnut stain.

Anderson windows were installed throughout, as was a spray foam commercial roof that provides Rvalue for efficiency.  

The lot is sprawling and this unit faces west and south, so natural light is optimal.

Current tenants are using the office nook off the dining as dual home offices.   This space is flexible as a formal dining with office nook adjoining the closet space.   Period arches provide mild separation for space planning.  Piano windows look south in the living room.

Millwork in this unit is priceless.   Very rare to land crown molding without a poorly applied white finish.  The rail functions throughout the unit as a picture hanger to save the plaster from holes and damages.  Window treatments throughout are installed to stay.  Millwork in this unit is priceless.   Very rare to land crown molding without a poorly applied white finish.  The rail functions throughout the unit as a picture hanger to save the plaster from holes and damages.  Window treatments throughout are installed to stay.

Kitchen has been updated to a modern spec with a nod to the timeless.  German blomberg dishwasher, fisher paykel fridge is counter depth and compartmentalized for your freshies.

timeless marble in herringbone gives the kitchen that swagger, one that every building from the 20's deserves from day one.
