A New York State of Mind

A New York State of Mind

2417 Emerson Ave S002Web2417 Emerson Ave S020Web New York meets Lowry Hill - with a whole new bag of tricks.

2417 has a rich history - a perfect fit for the urban preservationist seeking a New York vibe. Built in 1907, these units were originally sold to wealthy businessmen living on Lake Harriet who worked downtown. Serving as a logical "in-between," gentlemen owned these units to stay in during the work week, helping to avoid the treacherous 2 mile commute back home. After changing hands over the years, a new era began in the early 80's when 2417 became the first condo conversion in the U.S. - landing it a large feature in Architectural Digest of that year.

Unit #103 has been meticulously updated by its long standing owner. It offers a rare exposed brick wall, custom built-ins, restored and stained oak sills, new storm windows, refinished birch flooring, soaring ceilings and direct access to the beautiful back courtyard.

With over 20k in upgrades, this kitchen is a craftsman and a chef's dream. Thoughtfully designed cabinets with pull out drawers, a custom mixer stand, tons of storage, and a double oven are perfect for any budding chef. Butcher block counter tops, cork flooring, marble counters, stainless steel appliances and a new tile back splash finish this stunningly designed space.

Large bedrooms, a full master bath with a custom hot air tub, 3/4 guest bath and fantastic laundry area finish the space. Worried about height? Say no more - we even got lanky Steve demonstrating the spacious loft feel in this unit - and that built-in is pretty sturdy too!
