On a leafy and historic block at 134 West 88th Street in the heart of the Upper West Side, this maisonette-style studio co-op is the compact version of brownstone living. Elegant burnished wood paneling frames the tidy space, anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. Turn-of-the-century details also include ceilings well over 11 feet high. The ask for this compact co-op? $559,000.
With its own private entrance, the co-op begins with a cozy living area with plenty of sunlight via three tall windows. Crisp, white plaster walls make the space feel big and bright.
A renovated, European-style kitchen is outfitted with a dishwasher and plenty of storage space. A warm tile floor sets the space apart and underscores the old-world vibe.
One of the best perks of this charming interior: A loft above the bed with a built-in wood ladder that provides extra sleeping space or storage. Wood-paneled custom shelves provide a home for books and other treasures. The bed is tucked in below, with a window for natural light. A crisp, white-tiled bath is both modern and classic, with a vintage-style basin sink.
Surrounded by the Upper West Side-Central Park West Historic District’s Renaissance Revival brownstones, the block is a Manhattan dream come true. If you’re looking for outdoor space, you’re in luck: The Central Park Reservoir, tennis center, playgrounds, and running trails are just a block away.
