QUINTESSENTIAL ART DECO! Arches, built-ins, picture moldings, high ceilings, and stunning hardwood floors with both herringbone and diagonal plank patterns decorated with walnut inlays are some of the features of the famous 1930's architecture beautifully manifested in this bright 1BR with southern and western exposures, located on a high floor. Both the kitchen and bathroom also boast beautifully maintained period features, so if you are a lover of this style, you MUST see this home!The entrance with a coat closet brings you into a foyer with lovely built-in shelving/cabinetry, with a pointed arch and wing walls leading to an expansive living room on the left. The kitchen is adjacent to the living room, offering a potential for a pass-through/open kitchen concept, but those who prefer the period details will find the original cabinetry and hardware irresistible. The deco feast continues in the bathroom with the pale yellow-black tiling and deep soaking tub, while the updated medicine cabinet and vanity add a touch of modern to the mix. Two exposures in the large bedroom create a lovely cross breeze and you'll enjoy some beautiful light with the sun streaming in most of the day. Four closets offer fantastic storage, and the low maintenance makes your carrying costs more than reasonable.The location doesn't get better than this: exit the building and you're within steps of stores, farmer's market, transportation, banks, and of course the jewel of the neighborhood-Inwood Hill Park.
