This residence is on the second floor of the building and can be reached by an elegant staircase with turned wood spindles or by the west elevator. This unit is one of the subdivisions created from the original apartments in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The permit allowed for the creation of 15 units from three apartments. Interestingly, the original doors and doorways and hardware were preserved, as well as many of the walls.
The entrance is right next to the elevator. As you enter the unit you are in one half of the original reception hall. It has been turned into an office by the current owner. There is a guest closet, probably the original guest closet.
The living room has been carved out of what was once the dining room of this unit, which extended west to the corner of the building. There are casement windows on two sides, which let in a tremendous amount of light. From one window, you can see the lakeshore. The room serves as a gathering area. At one end there is a cozy eating area which is just off the tiny galley kitchen. All the cabinets are new. Through the kitchen is a small door to the bathroom.
Off the living room is a bedroom, which was taken from the original living room. It has a window facing the street. The floors are the original oak and the doors are the original birch, now finished in a lighter color so the grain of the wood shows beautifully.
