Having high ceilings is a common feature of many New York apartments, but this is something different: the 15-foot-tall, barrel ceiling that’s lined with terra cotta tiles in this co-op for sale at 372 5th Avenue, in Murray Hill. It’s a stunning feature of the one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, and a lofted bedroom means you get to enjoy the ceiling from up close. The apartment comes from an 11-story co-op that was built for clothing store Best & Co back in 1910.

The apartment spans 1,226 square feet, and the “great room” has plenty of space for dining and living areas. They’ve got it right with the interior design here: the purple walls are offset by the brick-colored ceiling and the dark hardwood floors, while two massive windows bring in light. All that wall space is perfect to feature an art collection.

An open kitchen adjoins the living room, meaning that the lower floor of the apartment would make for a great, seamless entertaining space. It’s outfitted with white lacquer cabinets and long prep counters.

Finally, up to the loft, where a bedroom sits underneath that incredible ceiling. (The listing suggests a second bedroom could be carved out of the living room downstairs.) The lofted space is large enough to accommodate a king bed and furniture–such chic design makes this feel like the most luxe loft in New York. And we know for a fact those are some of the best apartment ceilings in all of New York!
