This apartment in Windsor Terrace, originally a one-bedroom rehabbed into two, has been recently gut renovated with light wood finishes and a new kitchen and bathroom. It benefits from mid-century space planning in new multifamily buildings that often rationalized layouts and provided exceptional sun exposures. Here the unit has a corner window in one bedroom where the building has an articulated outcropping, and the living room has a double window plus two more windows on two exposures.
Located just down the street from Prospect Park at 651 Vanderbilt Street, apartment 3Z resembles an inverted version of apartment A in the original floor plan by Morris Rothstein & Son. The listing suggests an alternate layout in which the latter is divided into a private office or third bedroom.
The drawback of this layout is that neither the bathroom nor the kitchen have direct sun exposure, though the double windows in the living room at one end of the kitchen may be enough. The apartment has new oak floors, and the kitchen cabinets mix a Scandinavian-style blond wood with modern white doors, a hexagonal tile backsplash, wood counters and stainless steel appliances. The listing photos show that it has plenty of room for an eight-seat table for entertaining.
The bathroom is refinished with a deep tub and what looks like gray stone walls, patterned gray floor tiles and a modern white vanity and medicine cabinet. A linen closet is outside of the bathroom.
Windows in the living room are accented with new blond wood sills, with radiator covers and bookshelves built in for a seamless quality. The corner window in the master bedroom has a similar treatment with white sills, and the opposite side of the room has a walk-in closet. The smaller bedroom has room for a single bed, and a niche has a blond sill matching the living room windows. Both bedrooms have pocket doors.
With a monthly maintenance fee of $707, the place is on the market for $799,000. Corcoran’s Lissa Wolfe and Sue Wolfe are handling the listing. Is it a good price?
