Built with care in 1948, this condo is as sexy as it is unexpected. Down a wide brick staircase from the street at the quiet rear of the building, this condo feels very cocktail hour and McM and features Sunset Magazine style indoor/outdoor living. The red tiled entry is shielded by a zinc awning. The door swings open into a huge living room featuring open architectural beams, a floor to ceiling Roman brick fireplace and big plate glass style windows overlooking its private garden, as well as access to same. Dramatic vertical openings join the living room to the formal dining room, which flows to the bedroom and refreshed en-suite bathroom beyond. The kitchen, side by side with the dining room, also overlooks the garden and features new appliances and countertops and freshly painted cabinets. The private rear gardens has a spacious brick terrace and peek-a-boo views of Corona Heights and beyond.
