A rolling library ladder is just one fun addition at this $550K Upper East Side one-bedroom

This Upper East Side one-bedroom may be small, but there’s something unique to see almost everywhere you look–a wall of built-in shelving with a rolling library ladder, beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a creatively compact kitchen. Located at 334 East 77th Street, the co-op is asking $550,000.

As the listing describes: “Located on a high floor in the back of the building facing south, this home is a peaceful little haven.” The living room feels extra cozy thanks to 11-foot beamed ceilings and the exposed brick wall and hearth. The library ladder was built by the Putnam Rolling Ladder Co., the country’s oldest such company. On the opposite wall, there’s a floor-to-ceiling closet (though it should be noted this is the only closet in the apartment). Throughout, there are re-finished hard oak wood floors.

The kitchen may be compact, but it fits in a stove/oven with a vent, built-in microwave, full-size fridge, and a washer/dryer. The custom cabinets reach up to the ceiling, and the farmhouse sink and hanging light fixture add a rustic feel.

Even the bathroom is made stylish with wainscotting, fun wallpaper (it’s actually original Martinique wallpaper from the Beverly Hills Hotel), and chic brass accents.

In the bedroom, the exposed brick wall has been painted white, and there are two windows.

The building is located on the block west of 1st Avenue, right near all the restaurants along Second Avenue and a quick walk to the subway at 72nd Street.
