Admiring the Admaston thru the ages

My first trip to The Admaston

About 15 years ago I was on a broker tour around the Upper West Side of Manhattan with some of my collegues from the office. We had about 10 new exclusives that we were previewing on the usual Thursday morning tour that we made every week. One of the stops on this day was a beautiful old lady named the Admaston condominium. On walking into the building, you were immediately taken by the rich ornate lobby with high vaulting ceilings, delicate wood moldings and warm amber lighting.

They were ready for us

The doorman knew we were coming and usered us upstairs to the open house being held by an agent in our office. So we all bundled into the elevator and rode up to the apartment. The apartment was stunning. I felt like I was entering another era and couldn’t wait to see what was around the next corner. This particular apartment had been fully renovated and showed beautifully.  Ever since that day, I have always had a love affair of The Admaston and cant wait to show the apartments whenever they come on the market.
