This 425-square-foot brownstone apartment, at 167 West 73rd Street in the Upper West Side, was transformed a few years back by the archtiecture firm Specht Harpman. Now, it’s a sleek, modern pad with plenty of creative storage options and an outdoor space to boot. The owner purchased the apartment for a mere $95,000 back in 1994–pre-renovation–and now the impressive final result of the renovation is on the market for $699,000.

Despite its modest size, the apartment is spread out over three different levels. The renovation created four separate living platforms specifically designed for efficiency, and to allow the apartment to feel open and bright. 12-foot ceilings and large windows certainly help the space feel larger, too.

The sunken kitchen was modernized with white cabinetry and extra counter space that seamlessly flows into the living room.

Above the living room is the is the cantilevered bed pavilion, supported by steel beams. Extra storage is under the stairwell which leads up to the bedroom. Other perks on this level include remote controlled blinds, an A/C unit, custom lighting and more storage.

Finally, the third level of the apartment features a private, south-facing terrace. Who knew living in such a small apartment could be so glamorous?

The brownstone, which holds co-op apartments, boasts a great location just east of Broadway with the 72nd Street subway just a block away.
