Property Description

In NYC, the Garden Court condos would be called "prewar," and these handsome units would cost in the millions! But here in University City, one-floor living is more affordable. The block-long Gothic Revival development now known as the Garden Court condos consists of eight interconnected six-story towers developed by Clarence Siegel in 1923, at that time as high-end apartments. Built for people who didn't want to own a house - not people who couldn't afford one - the units are spacious flats in a classic, glamorous style. And B505 is one of the best of the best: a huge 1720 s.f., 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath corner unit - with TWO "Juliet" balconies on the south side, overlooking Pine Street! These balconies are a special feature, only included on
a few units in the complex, and only on floor #5. In the main area of the unit, there's a room-sized entry foyer; a large living room with a decorative fireplace and balcony #1; a formal dining room; a kitchen which a new owner will most likely want to refurbish; a laundry room/partial bath, and a study or small bedroom. Open the kitchen door for access to an outdoor balcony/walkway. In the other "wing" of the unit, there are two big bedrooms - one featuring balcony #2 - and two handsome period baths, with ceramic tile floors and vitrolite glass walls. Condo amenities include (on the lower level, accessible from an entrance between buildings D & E in the courtyard), a community room, pool table, gym, bike storage room, library... and the most glamorous swimming pool you could ever imagine!
