1835 Franklin is a rare oasis of outdoor space situated in a prime location. This two bedroom, two bath condominium in an elegant doorman building boasts a remarkable and spacious wrap-around private garden.
Entering the unit, one has an unobstructed view through the open living and dining room, and into a private stone garden seen through large glass doors. There is natural light throughout, and each room looks out onto the lovely and peaceful space. The living and dining room is an expansive and airy space, perfect for a variety of arrangements. In its current form, a dining table is situated closer to the kitchen, and the room then flows naturally into a wide space perfect for hosting guests. There is great wall space for art and rich hardwood flooring.
Walking out directly into the landscaped garden is a rare treat, especially in a building such as this, and with the French doors swung open wide one can easily imagine fabulous gatherings year round with guests moving seamlessly from the living room space into an outdoor sanctuary with its abundance of potted and irrigated plants, a whimsical bubbling stone fountain, and appealing white lattice fencing providing additional privacy. The elegant garden has outdoor lighting and is on a drip system throughout, and there is plenty of space for large heat lamps if one wished to entertain. To the left, there is a wooden decking area, perfectly suited for outdoor dining or relaxing, and then a path lined with stones and large stone planters, creating an incredibly private and natural retreat in the middle of such a conveniently urban setting.
The gracious foyer of the home houses an abundant coat closet, and passing an additional storage closet in the hall, one enters the gourmet kitchen, which has everything a cook could need. It houses attractive stainless steel appliances, with double ovens, a Sub Zero fridge, a Viking hood, and a five-burner cook-top. There is also a double drawer dishwasher, and a cleverly mounted microwave oven, preserving both counter space and storage. The counter-top and backsplash are made of beautiful swirling natural stone.
The master bedroom is very spacious and offers two large closets and inside the sleeping quarters, there is a marvelous view through a nearly floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door of a stone walkway, plants, and foliage. In the master bathroom, there is a large vanity and across from it an ample closet is perfect for storing linens. A door encloses the shower and toilet for privacy. The floors are marble, and match the floors in the adjacent bathroom.
The second bedroom is flexible, in that it has both a closet as well as a large custom built-in shelving unit, perfect for an office or as a large organizational space for a bedroom. Across the hall, there is another large closet, beautifully modernized bathroom with floating toilet, shower over tub with a half glass enclosure, and a stylish polished light fixture. A stacked Bosch washer and dryer complete the space.
1835 Franklin #102 is exceptional both inside and out. The building offers a full-time doorman, two elevators, private storage with the unit, and 1-car deeded parking in the garage. The location is incredibly convenient - close to transportation, Whole Foods, and the newly renovated Lafayette Park. Inside, the outlooks and access from multiple rooms to the delightful garden space lend a feeling of serenity to the home. A charming and unique combination, this home is perfect for those who cherish privacy and tranquility, as well as those who enjoy indoor-outdoor entertaining and city living.
