700 Washington Place is a distinct Beaux-Arts style co-op building in the heart of Mount Vernon. Rachel Rabinowitz represented its newest homeowners, closing the sale at $550,000 on September 8th, 2017.
The building was constructed in 1835 and oozes the same classic European charm as the surrounding Mount Vernon neighborhood. Inside you’ll find a grand entrance with materials such as marble, wrought iron, original hardwoods, and ornamental plaster moldings. The elevator is an elaborate, hand operated machine. By the time you’re whisked several stories up, you’re completely transported to another time in history. The carefully preserved mechanics and architecture will truly suspend your sense of place and time.
The unit Rachel’s clients purchased is one of the most gorgeous in the building as it’s the corner-penthouse. Complete with views of the Washington Monument, Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, and the boulevard-style park. The home itself has 12 foot ornamental ceilings, antique French doors, and full marble bathrooms with claw-foot tubs. It’s old-school class that’s hard to find these days.
