It’s hard to argue with Flatiron views out of 24 oversized windows and under 14-foot ceilings. Those are some of the attributes of this three-bedroom co-op, which spans 160 feet across the entire second floor of 140 Fifth Avenue. Now on the market for $5.5 million, this former artist studio is now an upscale, palatial pad.

According to the listing, this loft was once home to a renowned artist, “whose artistic maps inspired the likes of Martha Stewart.” It’s been totally transformed into a living space–a key-locked elevator entry opens into a private landing with French doors, which then lead to the corner living room (which looks out onto Fifth Avenue) and open dining area.

The dining area features a custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling bookshelf and extra walls to hang artwork.

A gallery hallway leads to the other side of the apartment, which holds three bedrooms. The master comes with an impressively huge windowed closet and an en-suite bath with double shower heads.

A second bedroom features a spacious play space or sleeping loft. The artists former studio space in the apartment is now a living area, but could be redesigned as a media or game room. As this listing–and its price tag–shows, the days of gritty artist loft living in Flatiron are long gone.
