Built and styled in Italian Renaissance Revival architecture from another era, 925 Delaware Ave. is similar to high-rise apartments or condominiums found in New York City or Toronto.
The Campanile Apartments offer unique luxury living on prestigious Delaware Avenue. Completed in 1928-29, the cooperative at is one of the few co-ops in Western New York.
(With co-op ownership, each owner holds stock or shares in the corporation that owns and manages an entire building. Vested with shares, the owner then engages in a long-term proprietary lease with exclusive rights to use an individual unit.)
The duplex at 10B — created on the ninth and 10th floor — is a corner unit that has a panoramic view from its terrace and every window. The Peace Bridge, to the west, is complemented by nightly sunsets; while, to the north, one has a dominating look up Delaware Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood.
“With 2,400 square feet of living space on two main levels plus a bonus third floor, the home features three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms,” began Susan D. Lenahan, CRS, CBR, associate broker with M.J. Peterson Real Estate.
An elevator provides direct entry to the marble tiled foyer of the apartment.
High ceilings, crown moulding, hardwood flooring and paneled doors are evident throughout the apartment.
The foyer leads to the 23-foot living room with a wood-burning fireplace anchored on the interior wall. The living room then opens to the formal dining room — two great spaces for entertaining.
The U-shaped kitchen is created by Auburn Watson cabinets and granite countertops. Subway ceramic tile backsplash in the kitchen continues the classic appointments, which are maintained throughout the unit. Kitchen appliances include such high-end names as Viking, Sub-Zero and Bosch.
A winding oak staircase with wrought iron spindles descends — yes, descends, — to the bedroom level.
The master bedroom has a private bath with classic fixtures, while bedrooms #2 and #3 share a jack-and-jill arrangement. Bedroom #2 currently is shown as a family room with built–in cabinets and bookshelves. The in-unit laundry room also is on this level.
“The bonus room on the third floor would be for multi-use as a office, studio or exercise room. It also has a full bathroom,” noted Lenahan.
Additional features of the unit include two underground parking spaces, central air conditioning and 24-hour staffed amenities such as concierge service, a full-service garage with valet service, and delivery-to-the-door service.
An elegant lobby rivals classic hotels of the last century. The grand space also overlooks a terrace and landscaped courtyard behind the building.
