This quintessential brownstone apartment on the top floor at 140 West 74th Street might not be what comes to mind when you think of penthouse living, but 10-foot ceilings, tons of exposed brick, and plenty of pre-war charm–coupled with a perfect spot on the Upper West Side–could make this co-op studio a top choice for a Manhattan pied-a-terre. A price of $749,000 and the fact that it’s not a walk-up help make the case, as does the view of the tree-lined West 70s from a wall of windows.

This fetchingly decorated bolthole does, as the listing offers, look like a breath of fresh air. It was originally a one-bedroom home but has been converted to an open space.

In the renovated kitchen you’ll find stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, a stone backsplash and granite worktops.

There’s a custom Murphy bed tucked away to keep things tidy if efficiency is your thing; the space can easily be reconfigured to create a one-bedroom for living a bit larger.

In the bath, opalescent tiles in shades of blue and green with white accents make the everyday space both colorful and tranquil.

Just in time for mid-summer, the unit’s through-the-wall air conditioner is already through the wall, two ceiling fans lazily swirl overhead–and Central Park is just a few blocks away. Great closets and plenty of storage help keep things tidy. The elevator (rare for multi-family brownstones) building is one of three turn-of-the-century houses that comprise a well-run pet- and pied-a-terre-friendly co-op.
