One Bedroom Under Contract in One Week

This 780 square-foot one bedroom condo went under contract in seven days. The unit boasts ceilings that soar as high as 11 feet and juxtaposes Victorian architectural style in some rooms with contemporary architectural style in others. On one side of the living room, a rounded bay with leaded windows sits above a built-in bench and has wood-paneled wainscoting on either side. On the adjacent wall, an ornately-framed wood mantel surrounds a green-tiled fireplace. Overlooking the living room, the kitchen nook is more stark and minimalist, with a large island that doubles as a breakfast bar and has a pot-filling spout. The bedroom has double exposure and closets outfitted with Elfa organizers. To top it off, the Schafer Mansion, the boutique condo building where this unit is located, won the Historic Mount Pleasant Design award in 2012.
