The Flatiron District is known for its big, basic loft apartments, often creatively customized by residents, and this duplex co-op at 131 Fifth Avenue is no exception. Currently on the market for $1.75 million, the art-friendly home has understated bragging points like 15-foot ceilings and 10-foot windows overlooking 5th Avenue, as well as a full suite of interior design tools for creative living.

Enter through the foyer into the large open living/dining room accented with exposed white painted brick. On one wall, floor-to-ceiling metal bookshelves can be accessed with a rolling library ladder. A wall of windows brings in plenty of sunlight.

The totally functional and solidly-designed galley kitchen allows for more room in the main living area while giving everything its place.

This floor has a spacious separate area currently being used as a work studio, but the listing reminds us that it an easily be transformed into a home office or media center.

Up a smart black staircase on the mezzanine level is a bedroom with full-height ceilings and one very cool fire engine red lacquered wood floor. There’s lots of closet space, a washer/dryer and another office nook overlooking the living space. A second bath could be added if the new owner were so inclined.

The eight-story, 23-unit co-op building was once a Lord & Taylor department store back when this was the bustling Ladies’ Mile (now the Ladies’ Mile Historic District).
