RENOVATION SPECIFICS

The top-to-bottom renovation of this apartment included the gutting of the Kitchen, Half Bath, Laundry Room, and both Full Bathrooms. A half wall was made whole, a door was closed up, a Half Bath was removed, and the washer and dryer relocated. Additionally, there were significant additions, changes, and upgrades throughout the apartment involving plumbing, electrical, and carpentry work. A white oak hardwood floor was laid in the Florida Room and white Grecian marble tile floors were laid in the Bathrooms. All new raised panel cabinetry and brushed nickel hardware were installed in the Kitchen and both Bathrooms. All new stainless appliances and Luna Pearl granite countertops were added in the Kitchen; Grecian marble tile tub and shower surrounds and Carrara marble countertops were added in the Bathrooms. Crown moulding was added in every room where it was not, missing chair railing was added, all light fixtures were replaced and/or added, and every room and window has been freshly painted. All hardwood floors have been sanded, stained, refinished, and sealed.

With a renovation this extensive, Apartment #32 has been transformed from its origins in 1967 to well into this century and now offers its new owners a chic modern residence with the convenience of desired amenities along with the coziness and familiarity of traditional design. In addition, its location within Chatham Square is the coveted park-like corner of this self-contained gated community where the peaceful rear views are of the mature trees and lush landscaping as well as the canal – no other buildings intrude on your view. The residents here value the peace and quiet highly and appreciate the undiscovered aspect of Chatham Square.
