The sunny master bedroom features wainscoting, coffered ceilings and a charming gas fireplace (one of three), as well as abundant storage throughout and a separate windowed office, which also overlooks the private garden. Modern touches include three oversized walk-in closets, a Miele washer/dryer and recessed, track lighting with a Lutron lighting system.
The majestic 1929 building, designed by architects McKim, Mead & White, is just three blocks from historic Washington Square Park (south) and bustling Union Square Park (north), with its celebrated year-round Farmer’s Market, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
