Description

Welcome to 405 West 23rd St., 5F, a beautifully designed and smartly laid-out studio with loads of prewar charm and great light from open city and skyline views facing south. With much attention paid to architectural detail in the renovation by its designer-owner, this oversized studio with its separate entry foyer, dressing room, nicely preserved original bathroom, renovated windowed kitchen, generous sleeping alcove, and cleverly-designed built-ins make it truly stand out from the rest.

Enter into the gracious foyer and ahead is the bright 19 x 14.5 common living space with 8 feet, 9 inches ceilings, two oversized double-paned windows, custom built-ins of which one houses a through-wall Friedrich air conditioner, and plenty of space for entertaining, dining, working and sleeping. The windowed chef’s kitchen, with lots of room given its generous Carrara marble counter tops, features abundant cabinetry, open shelving, a brand-new Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, a new Avanti gas range, an under counter SubZero refrigerator and freezer, and a new GE microwave.

The well-designed sleeping alcove includes lacquered finish built-ins housing a full-size Murphy bed, bedside night stand, and lots of storage. Off the entry foyer is the generous dressing area featuring an Elfa system closet and a custom-built wenge wood armoire with drawers and shelving. This leads to the well-preserved original subway tile bathroom with oversized bathtub and pedestal sink.

There are oak-strip hardwood floors throughout, and electricity and gas are included in the maintenance.
