Beautiful Brickwork Brings 2BR/2BA Elemental Elegance at The Powerhouse

Exquisitely exposed brick wall extending from the living room to dining area enrapture all those who enter into this wonderfully spacious and charming two bedroom condo-home layout. This 1187 sq ft. apt is an example of pure excellence in combining a rustic theme with Powerhouse’s modernistic approach to industrialist design. Its 10-foot high ceilings and oversized windows give the apt delightful airiness while complimented by the deep richness of American walnut wood floors throughout. A Wedgewood ‘sushi bar’ wraps partially around the open setting of the masterfully efficient chef’s kitchen with its streamlined white lacquer cabinetry, glass back splash and quartzite stone counter top, accented with dark walnut tones. Ample pantry. All this lends harmonized decor while being superbly upgraded with stainless steel Viking appliances. New washer/dryer installed. 

Enormous master bedroom with a walk-in and a standard closet – both customized, offering built in shelving and designated hanging areas. And just adjacent is the ensuite bathroom with double sinks in an upscale marble vanity especially selected by owner to mirror the immaculate luxurious tile flooring. High grade fixtures and finishes all through. Large linen closet.  The second bedroom extends enough space to comfortably accommodate a Queen size bed. Sizeable closets throughout, including one at the welcoming entry foyer.
