Stefanie Running Anderson of Fathom Realty represents sellers Kevin Schnell and Josh Garrett and describes the spacious apartment as “a fusion of modern and mid-century design.”

Years of interior space upgrades have created “little flashy touches,” he said, including patches of amber mixed in with the terrazzo flooring.

Natural light is provided by an abundance of large windows on three sides of the apartment, and the interior shares a single wall with its neighbor.
