The Showcase Apartment-Newington Center - Welcome to The Showcase Apartment. This apartment is for the pickiest and most discerning of renters. If you have been looking around for an apartment out of a magazine, then look no further. There is nothing that hasn't been professionally updated or preserved in perfect condition. It's a beautiful mix of modern and new, with the old world charm and craftsmanship of 1920's.
As you walk through the front stairwell you will see just the start of the pristine woodwork of the railings and balusters that have never been painted and really show off the richness of the wood. This is a glimpse of what is to come. Outside your front door is a private porch with a brand new cork floor. This three season porch is all windows and makes a nice space to enjoy an evening breeze or a morning coffee. A real bonus space.
The real excitement though is walking through the solid wood panel door to your living and dining room. This open layout really shows off the original wood trim and adds so much character to this entertaining space. There are original detailed columns that help separate the two spaces. There is crown molding, extra tall baseboards and period casement trim around every window. There is a built-in hutch in the dining room to show off your best china or it makes a great bar. Even the floor is special with an inlay red oak border around the stunning fur floors. Both bedrooms carry the same feel with gleaming hardwoods and solid panel doors with original hardware.
Just as you are overtaken by the charm there is a brand new "chic" and modern kitchen with all the bells whistles; there are white shaker cabinets, high-end stainless steel appliances, stone backsplash, and shining granite. The French door refrigerator and bottom freezer is a great size for all your food storage. The bronze hardware and fancy brushed nickel faucet complete the look of this two week old kitchen. There is even a nice space for a small table next to two oversized double hung windows. There are over 15 windows in the apartment that allow a lot of natural light in.
The biggest surprise is the ½ acre backyard with a stone patio that is perfect for relaxing and grilling. This mini-football field and sanctuary really makes you feel like you are no where near the hustle of Newington center. The apartment also comes with a washer and dryer and two parking spots with one being a garage spot.
Just when it can't get any better, you also have a new ceramic tile bathroom with a decorative mosaic tile boarder and new vanity, bronze faucet and light fixture. Truly, this apartment is for someone that is looking for the best. This apartment has been owner occupied and lovingly cared for.
Lastly, the location is great for a renter. Everything you could want is walking distance across the street at the Newington Center. You can walk across to the bar, Carvel ice cream, or Gold Burgers or the gym. You are five minutes to West Hartford, 2 mile to Rt. 9, 2 minutes to the convenience of everything the berlin turnpike has to offer.
