Approaching this historic building, seeing the koi pond on the lawn and the wrap-around porch lined with comfortable chairs, makes you want to explore inside the locked gates. After the doorman buzzes you in, it's a treat to walkpast the stunning Moorish, Victorian, and Craftsman public roomsto the wrought-iron elevator or the wide marble steps. The unit has the original cement floors, period-seeming and original fixtures, a tastefully modernized kitchen with a dishwasher and a refrigerator behind matching cupboard doors. There is a full bedroom, a convertible bedroom/den with closets, a dining room off the kitchen, a living room with decorative fireplace, and a balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee at the bistro table. The bathroom looks original, but offers a low-flow toilet and a shower over the tub. The HOA includes all utilities except Internet/cable, free use of the laundry room in the basement, a storage closet, and, of course, the public rooms and the rooftop view.
