Walk through
Enter condo 76E to a wide front hallway with highly textured wallpaper and oak floors laid in an intricate herringbone pattern. A stylish powder room is behind one door. The formal living room is just ahead, bathed in natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows with operable custom shutters.

The wet bar with undermount sink and travertine counter and backsplash is easily at hand, complete with ample storage for glasses. A secondary bedroom now serves as a study and is separated by French doors from the living room.
