The home features four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a formal dining room, and a kitchen equipped with high-end appliances and a breakfast area. Throughout, it features high ceilings and herringbone oak hardwood floors, according to the listing.
Additionally, a 365-square-foot studio with a full bathroom and kitchenette can be purchased for an additional $1.65 million. These studios “rarely come to market and can only be purchased by residents of the building,” Mr. Blackmon said.
The seller, a limited liability company, bought the apartment new for more than $5.7 million in 2008, property records show.
