Welcome to the Lenox! Built in 1917, the Lenox is one of the best pre-war buildings in the city. This solidly constructed elegant hi-rise building offers the convenience and safety of a 24 hour, 7 day a week desk-staff member and package services in a magnificent lobby. The Lenox is a pet friendly building that seems to sit in two neighborhoods, being at the southern end of Midtown Village in Washington Square West while also being part of the energetic Avenue of the Arts area. Surrounded by fabulous shops, theatres, restaurants, hospitals and so much more, this area boasts a Walk Score of 98 as you can do most everything on foot- true urban living! This spacious, 12th floor, corner unit has over 900 square feet of living space. The large windows are fitted with Hunter-Douglass brand plantation shutters, allowing for light control, insulation from heat/cold when fully shut and adding a very luxe feel to the entire apartment. High ceilings, original yellow-oak parquet flooring, accented structural beams and many other interesting architectural details are seen throughout. Sunlight floods into each room and every window presents magical, scenic city views on 2 sides of the building, a panorama spanning from the Girard Point Bridge to the SW and looking out over much of the Wash West neighborhood to the NE, and beyond. The updated, eat-in kitchen features granite counter tops, plenty of cabinets, stainless steel appliances and is open to the large living room- echoing the open-concept living you would see in newer construction, while still retaining its old world charm. The entry, master bedroom and generous extra storage closet (7x7) are all customized by California Closets, featuring multiple hanging rods, drawers, hampers, valet rods, a quick-grab ~tool wall~ and seemingly endless shelving. The oversized, corner bedroom features an array of five large windows, the best view in the house, and a ceramic tile en-suite bath with window. There is a common building laundry room, however the Association now permits owners to install in-unit washers and dryers. Buyers of 12A will be ahead of the game, as a ceramic tile floor and plumbing has already been installed (to code) in the large hall closet for a potential powder room or laundry room. Association fee includes heat, hot water, hi-speed internet and common area maintenance. Owner is responsible for electric, cooking gas, cable and phone. Additional storage is available in the basement for a fee. Come see this wonderful apartment in what is arguably the most vibrant area in Center City Philadelphia- you won~t want to leave!
