Literally right around the corner from the most drool-worthy carriage house this side of Broad, this third floor, 1,500 square-foot condo is a bookworm's dream. Including private parking and an elevator, this two-bedroom, two and a half-bath residence features an open kitchen and dining area, bright living area, and access to a private outdoor terrace where you shall sit and sip your tea and drum your fingers on your lounge chair waiting patiently for Karl Ove's third installation to arrive in May.
Down the hall, the den has enough built-in bookshelves to house the complete Knausgaard saga, an encyclopedia set or two, all the Harry Potters, and all those other hard-cover books you bought before waiting for the paperback to come out because you just had to. The bedrooms are nice, and so are the bathrooms. You could probably read books in there, too.
