Part of what makes New York City so romantic are the picturesque historic buildings that have been maintained over the past few centuries. Now you can live this romance all day, everyday, in this 600-square-foot one-bedroom located at 115 Eighth Avenue in the Park Slope‘s iconic Chiclet Mansion (yes, a mansion designed for the gum magnate). Co-ops like this are very rarely available, and with its current listing price at $549,000 this one will not be on the market for very long.
This apartment, once the dining room of the mansion, is filled with unique details that truly make it one of a kind. The ceilings measure upwards to 12-feet in height, and the the dining and living room are adorned with beautifully tiled parquet wood flooring. There’s also a grand decorative fireplace, a bay window looking out into the garden and walnut wainscoting throughout the property. Upon entering the apartment you’re first greeted with a long gallery hallway that is prime for displaying artwork or photos, and beautiful built-ins decorate the living room walls making it easy to create the “at home library” you’ve always dreamed of. There are two large closets located in the hallway providing the new owner with ample storage space and peace of mind.
The landmarked building was originally designed by CPH Gilbert for Cadbury Adams, the man responsible for bringing chewing gum to the United States. In the 1950s, the 7,500 square foot mansion was separated into 10 apartments, and is now being restored to its original splendor.
