It is sometimes the case that a developer will rehab a beautiful brownstone and carve it into identical units, stripped of all unique period charm. Not this Spruce Street condo. It doesn’t look like any other unit we’ve seen before, and not just because it happens to feature one stunning stained glass skylight.
The condo is one of five units in a rehabbed corner brownstone. The interior staircase looks practically original to the 1869 construction. The open-plan living room combines bold paint color with stained glass windows and 15-foot vaulted ceilings that lead up to the enormous skylight. The kitchen is the one place in this unit where you will find the familiar: high-end appliances by KitchenAid and Miele as well as custom cabinetry. Unusual, even in luxury kitchens? Cool concrete counters. There are two bedrooms, which each have custom closets. Both bathrooms feature separate tubs and showers along with floor-to-ceiling subway tile.
As if the inside didn’t provide lovely enough views, the unit also has sole access to a private deck where the skyline feels like you could reach out and grab Liberty Place.
