Maybe you’ve noticed some of those unusual historic townhouses nestled between much larger buildings that are scattered about New York City, and the geometric gem of a limestone townhouse at 35 Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side is one of those. Within, an equally out-of-the-ordinary co-op is now on the market for $1.25 million.

With a barrel-and-zigzag facade punctuated in places by cylindrical columns that might look right at home on a Roman palazzo, a triangular sleeping loft and a lovely shaded wood-clad deck off the bedroom, there’s plenty to behold in this one-bedroom, third-floor aerie. Views of Riverside Park (right across the street) and the Hudson River add up to a home that’s definitely “not your cookie cutter apartment,” as the listing says.

A spacious living room with high ceilings and those stunning park and river views offers a wood-burning fireplace, brick details, warm wood floors–and mirrored walls that make the room look even bigger. Though it’s not pictured in full, a step-down kitchen is yet another clever quirk of the layout.

Following the curve of the building’s rounded facade, a wall of windows in the dining area is framed by stone columns and built-in seating.

Tucked above the main floor, a corner loft space is open to the floor below and can serve as a second sleeping area or a home office.

A large bedroom has an en suite bath, but it’s the beautifully landscaped private roof deck just outside the door that definitely gets our attention. This unusual building is blessed with a prime Upper West Side location just across from the aforementioned park and Hudson River Greenway as well as all of your favorite museums and grocery stores and not far from Central Park.
