Masterfully crafted to stunning perfection, this 2BR (+ den + office), 2BA apartment with terrace is a unique home with high design and sophistication, with thoughtful attention paid to every detail. In its current configuration, the expansive 2,017 SF home features two bedrooms plus an additional den used as a bedroom. Award-winning designer Joe Ginsberg curated every element of the home, from hand-crafted resin doors to a spectacular floating platform office, to a 13’ hand-carved mahogany bookcase, complete with library ladder.
Bright, Southern light beams into the home through oversized windows in the living room and two bedrooms, highlighting the soaring, 14’ double-height ceilings. A special Venetian plaster applied to the walls creates warmth and sets the tone for entry into the kitchen, dining, and living space. The kitchen features modern stainless steel counters, spacious cabinets with enough storage for a professional chef, plus a suite of stainless steel Viking Professional appliances, including a refrigerator, range with exterior vented hood, a warming drawer, dishwasher, microwave, and wine refrigerator. The kitchen flows into the living and dining area, where a steel and spandrel glass platform office floats above the dining table. The 13’ mahogany bookcase creates a natural centerpiece for the spacious living room, which looks out onto a private terrace equipped with an automatic irrigation system.
At over 400 square feet, the grand-scale master suite features Venetian plaster walls and Frighetto custom closets. Touches of luxury in the master bath include a platinum-encased glass shower door and a custom stone vanity. The bright second bedroom is larger than many master bedrooms, and a den has been outfitted as a third bedroom with a custom-built loft bed and storage bookcase.
Beyond the stunning details, the home offers abundant storage. A sliding barn door hides a substantial coat closet near the entry, and a large storage room (formerly a darkroom) with a California closet system has ample space for pantry items, cleaning supplies, sporting equipment, or other overflow. An externally vented washer/dryer adds
