Sometimes less is more, especially when you have an ornate wood-burning fireplace flanked by custom bookcases, 10 foot ceilings with crown moldings, original strip oak floors, and oversized windows. The clean lines and subtle sophistication showcase the livability of this renovated two bedroom, one bathroom prewar home. An open floor plan allows for more light and fluid movement between the living and dining area. With its neatly concealed murphy bed, this space easily converts to a second bedroom. With abundant outfitted closets, the master bedroom is spacious enough to accommodate a king size bed. The windowed kitchen is compact, but ship-shape. The efficient design includes glass-front cabinetry, marble countertops, and high-end appliances. The renovated bathroom is a contemporary take on the classic prewar style. By focusing on color, space, and shape, this prewar home is sleek and fresh.
