This may be West Mount Airy's most beautiful condominium building. Striking in its aspect, it stands tall in the 600 block of West Phil Ellena Street, and, built in the early part of the 20th century, it boasts of excellent care over the years. Apartment A1 is on the first floor and offers 2 nice-sized bedrooms each with its own bathroom, one with a good closet, the other with a large walk-in closet. The main apartment door enters a long hall with 2 closets. Then the apartment opens up into the airy public spaces that enjoy lovely natural light and offer a flexibility of uses. A library with 2 banks of windows--on front and on side--with built-in shelving and long window seat flows into the overlarge living room whose focus is a wood-burning fireplace. A high and wide arched opening leads to the formal dining room, large enough to seat 12 for a celebratory meal. Each of these rooms has crown moldings, oak flooring (actually throughout the apartment), and multiple windows. The bright dining room, also with 2 banks of windows, has elegant chair rail molding. The kitchen is upgraded: stainless steel sink with garbage disposal, dishwasher, electric stove top and oven, good counter space with ceramic tile backsplash, sizeable number of cabinets, peninsula offering more counter and cabinets with seating for stools, ceiling fan, small desk by the window, wonderful pantry, and in the rear a washer and dryer. Exit door leads to small deck overlooking the rear of the property, great for coffee and a croissant on a lovely day!
