The living area takes advantage of the breakfast bar island, complete with drawers on either side. The galley kitchen has tiled floors, a white subway tile backsplash, a hood floating above the stove, a farmhouse basin sink, and a nook that houses the fridge opposite floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. The bedroom has double exposure and also has access to the dual-entry bath. The cooperative building is pet friendly and has parking and storage available for rent. The monthly fee also includes utilities, Wi-Fi, and property taxes.
