Lovely, bright, compact and serene one bedroom/ one bathroom apartment . It has eastern exposure and open views. Located in a prewar building designed by the architect Horace Ginsbern who was responsible for the Park Plaza Apartments, the first Art Deco building in the Bronx. The apartment has the original art deco details such as: high ceilings, windows in each room, archways, wood panel floors and ample closets. It has a roughly designed mid-century modern kitchen with the appliances on one wall. There is a dining area, closet and setback shelf. The living room has an arch, double window and an eating area. A traditional arch and hallway separates the bathroom and bedroom from the common area. The windowed bathroom has the period black and white stone subway tiles. There is a large floor to ceiling walk-in-closet in the graciously laid out double windowed bedroom.
This elevator building is setback and has seasonal roses flourishing on trellises in front of the 3015-3017 buildings. The hand laid Italian brick pathway leads to the building. It is surrounded with seasonal flora, trees, plants and shrubs. At the end of the entry path is a Zen fountain high above. The entrance to the building was recently renovated and it also has an intercom. The Art Deco lobby's floors are stone and there is a period staircase that ascends to the top floor. The elevator was replaced within the last few years. There is a laundry, service entrance and individual storage (outside vendor) in the basement. The super lives-in.
