The demand for larger apartments in Manhattan was most apparent in the early 1990's. At that time, many owners were devastated by the real-estate crash a few years earlier and found that the need for additional space was more critical than their losses. To our clients, who were unable to sell their original one bedroom apartment, and having previously purchased an additional studio apartment for an older child, it became clear that going into contract on an adjoining one bedroom apartment would solve their space needs. Entry spaces are important and are often over-looked elements in the design and layout of many modern apartment units. This design allowed for the gracious flow from a generous foyer to many rooms of the home including a formal dinning room, full size eat in kitchen, study/office, laundry, two bedrooms, living room and convertible den. The ability to move from one space to another and still have unique separation schemes makes this a very special home for a prominent New York City judge and his family.
