A stunning 1 bedroom apartment in a typical NYC brownstone building flaunting its standard issue fire escape like a trophy. This beautiful abode is perfectly balanced with generous proportions and in one of Manhattan’s most desirable districts.
With internal glazed French doors, playful striped fabrics and baroque picture rails adorning the walls this elegant apartment feels decidedly European.

Chunky wooden fixtures in the kitchen create a rustic feel where the convivial preparation of a meal could become the fondest of memories.
The beautiful bedroom is vast with high ceilings – leave the French doors open to create a lounge room extension.
