All the richness of the city has been transposed vertically into this appealing three-level townhome atop One Arts Plaza. Homes at this Arts District address have elevated “quality of life” into “the art of living.” With contemporary styling, state-of-the-art technology and alluring amenities it is easy to understand the appeal of the “Arts District Life” and all in which it encompasses.
Residence 1912 is a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath home with a Study that works on both an intimate and vast scale but never forgets to foster the comfort of its inhabitants. There is a shared language between the elegant materials and clean detailing throughout the home that unifies each of its three distinctive levels. The layout and design provide an aesthetic of warmth and calmness rarely offered in such an urban setting. With museum finished walls, 11-ft ceilings, 10-ft window walls, extensive seagrass limestone and balanced art lighting, a seamless solution of practical form and proportionality have been achieved.
The core of the residence is its “main-level” which contains the juxtaposed living spaces that make it most unique. The living, dining and kitchen areas have been united to form a fantastic entertaining space which overlooks a tri-level outdoor terrace. Visual continuity between the internal and external spaces has been extended beyond their physical boundaries here and into the glittery landscape.
While emphasis has been placed on the use of space and views on the core level, it must also be stated that the kitchen has been carefully thought-out and is an engineering-inspired construction. Bulthaup™ cabinetry finished with Natural Oak wood has been accented by Statuary White marble countertops providing an innate elegance. There are stainless steel Miele™ appliances with gas cooking, Sub Zero™ refrigerator/freezer and a separate wine cooler. A large island bar in a Natural Oak is the perfect balance between functionality and style. This immense storage space beneath the bar is perfect for table settings and decorative objects but also assists with culinary preparation associated with entertaining.
The upper level master suite generates form and volume with a private terrace that also aligns with the western vantage points. The window wall provides transparency between indoor and outdoor spaces with the changing hues of the sky. Hardwood flooring provides a well-defined balance to the open room and there are two individual dressing areas completed by custom walk-in closets. Both closets provide separation and optimal wardrobe storage. The luxurious master bath offers a linear dual vanity with square-cut vessels. A large soaking tub, also in a profound square shape, is prominent to the room with a granite accented wall. A separate walk-in shower has been cleverly concealed beyond a frosted glass door.
The lower level of the home offers visual continuity between the internal and external spaces with limestone clad flooring which continues through the window wall onto the outdoor terrace space. A second master is located here that is robust in size and itself a private refuge. The simplicity of this room makes it diverse enough for many purposes including a den. A chic private bath is outlined with granite walls and floors and offers a glass enclosed shower. The striking vanity is large and provides depth to the area. A study is also present on this level and overlooks the outdoor terrace. Clearstory windows in both the bedroom and office modulate reflective light to create a soothing environment and establish a strong connection to the outside. A half-bath has been placed on this level for convenience has feature an artistic wall-mounted sink.

There are motorized shades and private entrances on each level.
