The former private art studio of Mrs. Seymour H. Knox Jr. situated on a four-and-a-half acre Oakland Place estate has been artfully converted to an elegant city carriage house residence for a discriminating tenant to rent. The apartment boasts a fabulous great room which is entered through an exterior black wrought iron staircase with balcony giving the feeling of New Orleans, which was its inspiration. The great room has random-width hardwood floors, story-and-a-half vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams and a wood-burning fireplace with a 19th century English pine mantle and antique Delft tile surround. It also contains a very large bay window with window seat which seats five people comfortably and overlooks four manicured acres which are tended by a full-time staff. The apartment has three lovely bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
The second interior staircase leads to an open floor plan entry hall, kitchen, small butler's pantry and large family room. The brand new kitchen contains all-new stainless steel appliances (French door refrigerator, stove with vented hood, wine fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer.) The kitchen has all-new solid wood cabinets with gorgeous granite countertops and hardwood floors.
Extensive storage space and numerous built-in drawers and cabinetry throughout apartment. In-house laundry, great security, and heated indoor parking. New central air conditioning. Three extra-large newly-installed skylights and loads of large windows make for very sunny rooms. Brick building in excellent condition with new highly insulated roof. Very private and exclusive. Put simply... the most elegant and welcoming apartment in town.
