Not exactly the grunt of the litter—there are other units at 20 E Cedar roughly its size and price—this 2-bed/2.5-bath condo does some modern things with unequivocally vintage Neo-Gothic architecture. The chandelier centered in the 2-story living room is one contemporary intrusion, bested by the original fireplace and leaded floor-to-ceiling windows. Like architect Fugard & Knapp's other spaces, the 2,450-square-footer leads with its showy living room and follows with a conventionally-scaled floorplan that looks cramped in contrast. That's just an illusion— the dining room, new chef's kitchen, and bedrooms are all spacious. A needier vintage building, monthly assessments are through the roof: $1,947. And that blow doesn't depress the asking price as much as one would hope: it's starting out at $869,900.
