1-Story,Condo,Unit/Flat, Contemporary - ELKINS PARK, PA
Recognized early in his career as a significant talent, Robert A.M. Stern was hired in 1974 by the current owners to design a two bedroom, 2 1/2 bath apartment, from raw space, in one of the most prestigious Elkins Park buildings. Still practicing today, Stern is the dean of the Yale School of Architecture and was lead architect on such notable buildings as the Comcast Center, 10 Rittenhouse Sq., and 15 Central Park West. Self-described as a "modern traditionalist", Stern's Briar House apartment clearly exemplifies this philosophy. Now over 40 years old, the apartment has a fresh and timeless quality so appealing to today's buyers. Lovingly preserved, this luxury condo features a 27' x 60' public space, slate floors, abundant storage in every room, a singular glass brick, curved wall enclosing the eat-in kitchen, an impressive foyer with curved walls and a lighted display case, 30' of bookcases, and floor to ceiling doors. The finishes are impeccable. The space is light-filled and uplifting. The floor plan is unique and exceptional. Briar House provides great security and amenities from car service to garage parking, to nearby shopping, cable and doorman. Seller calculates total square footage, including balcony, at 2610 square feet.
