This south-facing apartment comes from the prewar cooperative known as Morgan Studios, at 170 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side. A thoughtful renovation didn’t take anything away from the prewar charm—the living room still looks stunning with 13-foot ceilings and large casement windows, alongside a wood-burning fireplace with a custom mantle. A ladder helps access the floor-to-ceiling shelving, and a staircase leads to the upper-level bedroom and kitchen. This was just listed under $1.5 million, after last selling in 2009 for $1.35 million.

The apartment has a unique layout. The living room (which also includes an office nook) is located on the main floor, and a staircase leads up to the kitchen, dining room and bedroom. The whole open space is lit by the massive south-facing casement windows.

The windowed kitchen, renovated to maximize storage and counter space, was decked out with top-of-the-line appliances. The adjacent dining room looks down over the dramatic living space.

The bedroom, located off the dining room, has a white marble ensuite bathroom.

Morgan Studios, an Art Deco brick building built in 1927, holds 38 co-op apartments. The amenities include a full-time doorman, live-in resident manager and porter. And the location isn’t bad at all, just east of Lexington Avenue and three blocks to Central Park.
