The star of this high floor one bedroom with southern exposure is a 168 SF chef’s kitchen with expansive counter space, windowed upper cabinetry, undermount lighting, Bosch and GE Profile appliances, and even a built-in wine chiller. The renovated mosaic-accented bath sports new wall tile, updated fixtures, a brand new tub, and even an updated shower area complete with crescent-shaped rod for additional elbow room. There are an impressive five closets and hardwood flooring throughout (beyond the stylishly tiled kitchen) and heating and A/C units in both living room and bedroom have been enclosed in custom-built cabinetry to add style while creating additional display space. Finally, take in the breathtaking, panoramic views all the way to Midtown Manhattan.
