This apartment boasts lofty vibes inside but comes from a historic landmarked townhouse of the Upper West Side. Located at 357 West End Avenue, a Lamb and Rich-designed corner property, this two-bedroom apartment sits on the top floor. Bad news: it looks like it’s a walk-up. There’s also good news, as the high ceilings make way for open loft space with a window and an operating skylight–the perfect bonus space for an office or library. After last selling in 2013 for $914,500, the apartment is now trying its hand asking $1.25 million.

Because it’s the top floor you’re afforded soaring, peaked ceilings that make for an open, lofty living and dining room. Sunlight from the loft’s skylight makes it all the way down into this space.

Here’s a look inside the bonus lofted space at the top of the curving staircase. It is outfitted with glass partitions and built-in shelving. There is also room for storage up here.

The kitchen is nestled underneath the loft.

Both bedrooms are located behind the kitchen, with a larger master and a smaller second bedroom. Although both have closet space, only the master has a window.

This striking townhouse is a five-unit, pet-friendly cooperative that’s self-managed by residents. The Upper West Side location is a good one, equidistance from the Hudson River Greenway and American Museum of Natural History. The closest subway is the B/C at 81st Street, right off Central Park.
