We’re getting some seriously good vibes from this newly refurbished stunner. Its light and airy aura and grounding touches hit all the right décor notes.

First off, how amazing is the exposed brick? It’s everywhere. From the kitchen wall to the kitchen floors and the bedrooms to the basement, the home displays naturalistic undertones. Paired with natural oak and pine floors, high ceilings and natural light, every room exudes peaceful serenity. But don’t mistake that understated and earthy design for a lack of luxury.

The first floor is suited to meet all of your entertainment needs. The kitchen has commercial appliances, custom cabinetry, a breakfast area and access to the breathtaking courtyard. The living room boasts a built-in fireplace and crown moldings.

A star of the home is undoubtedly the master bathroom, which basically looks like it belongs in a five-star spa. It houses a free-standing marble bathing tub, high ceilings and a glass-enclosed shower.

Other features include a washer and dryer, zoned climate control and one year of pre-paid parking in a nearby garage.

Location is prime as well. You will be in a cultural hot spot and close to the best shopping, restaurants, bars and parks.
