Sun-drenched, prewar studio on a high floor in a doorman, elevator building offers flexible layout and beautiful architectural details. If you love sunken living rooms and the warmth of hardwood floors; if high ceilings let your dreams soar; if you want to bathe in the rosy alpen glow of nightly sunsets, this spacious, high floor home is for you. "The sun literally sets in this apartment.? After the sun has set on the sidewalk, you'll open the apartment door to all the rosy colors of the sunset flooding the living room. It's gorgeous. The Kensington House is a beautiful example of art deco architecture. Because of the era in which it was built, the homes in this building have roomy entry foyers, dining nooks, and spacious dressing areas, most of which are lost in today's contemporary construction. For this studio, the dining platform is on the foyer level and is large enough to accommodate a queen-sized bed. This seller created a sleeping space here that was romantic and distinct from the rest of the living space. One step down from the dining (or sleeping platform) into the living room and you will enjoy the rosy westerly view from the 12th Floor. The living room has ample space for sofa, coffee table, credenza, armchairs desk or dining area, etc. If you prefer to orient your living space by the bookshelves and window, and your sleep space where the sofa is, that works well too. So many different ways to decorate, which is fun and unusual in a studio. The windowed kitchen is right off the living/dining area, features a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawer, an LG fridge/freezer, Avanti stainless-steel 4-burner range, and a GE microwave oven. It's an efficient space that is well-appointed and nicely designed. As you pass through the dressing area, into the windowed bathroom, the design of this updated space harkens back to the building's history and has very charming tiling. It is in superb, move-in condition. Plenty of good storage in the closets, too. Kensington House has rental storage lockers and a bike room in the basement, along with a laundry room. Best of all, there is a relaxing and sunny shared roof deck where you can visit with friends or family or just unwind after a busy work-week. Of course, the full time doorman, Super, and other building personnel are there to assist residents. Pet friendly.
