On the other end of the apartment removed from the living space, you'll find a full bathroom, large storage/linen/shoe closet with stacked washer/self-venting dryer, the second bedroom, and the master suite. The bedroom is outfitted with California closets and has unobstructed southern exposures that look directly over 20 Bayard Street's beautiful private gated garden.

It features a marble double-sink, Kohler lighted medicine cabinets, a soaking tub, and a separate glass-enclosed stall shower.
Quiet and refined, 20 Bayard street is as lovely as they come.
