Is this a case of buyer’s remorse? Just nine months after selling for $1.925 million, apartment 2D at 1 Bond Street has found its way back on the market, this time asking $2.195 million. The 1,205-square-foot unit is a modern take on a classic loft with tall beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, brand new oak hardwoods, and original cast-iron columns. Add to that, a strategic layout that makes the most of the natural light flooding in from the space’s four oversized windows, and you have a luminous haven in a prime location.
Most of the space is open, with a large kitchen, living room, and dining room setting the tone immediately upon entry. The gourmet kitchen is refinished with high-end appliances and stainless steel and walnut cabinetry. There’s also a wine cooler and rack in the new oversized island.
The master has walk-in closets and an en suite with a rain shower and a separate Jacuzzi soaking tub. The current layout has a second sleeping area or office space, and there’s plenty of space to build a third sleeping area.
The historic Robbins & Appleton Building was designed by Stephen Decatur Hatch, and was originally a factory for manufacturing watch cases. Built in 1879, the Second Empire-style landmark features a cast-iron façade and a mansard roof. It’s location on the quaint cobblestone streets of Bond Street enhance its old-world appeal.
