Designed by renowned architect Herman Baumann, the exquisite Art Deco Bellevue-Staten Building has been a fixture of the city’s skyline since 1929, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The elegant two-story lobby features an intricate coffered ceiling and bronze elevator doors adorned by whimsical panels of squirrels nibbling on acorns.
Situated on one of the top floors shared with only one other unit, this premier penthouse enjoys 360-degree views of the East Bay, a rare library, breathtaking solarium, and expansive outdoor patio for al fresco dining or stargazing. An original cast concrete fireplace graces a corner of the living room, a space dominated by two picture windows framing views of Lake Merritt.
The timeless design of this two-bedroom unit is enhanced by parquet floors and wide arched windows, and the kitchen and both bathrooms have been tastefully updated.
Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, common areas, and valet parking.
