Just because an apartment is small doesn’t mean it can’t have lots of personality. That’s the case for this alcove studio at The Gramercy House, a co-op at 235 East 22nd Street in Gramercy Park. The building itself makes quite a statement; it was designed by architects George and Edward Blum in 1931 as an impressive Art Deco apartment building. Historic interior details have managed to carry over into this apartment, with moldings, hardwood floors and even a corner wood-burning fireplace.

This particular studio is located on the 14th floor and comes with views of the Chrysler Building out the window. The fireplace is unique for studios in the building, according to the listing. The space isn’t sprawling, sure, but it’s enough room to get creative with interior design and add some fun accent items without overwhelming the apartment.

The open kitchen is located in one corner of the studio space. It’s been renovated with granite and stainless steel details, with a mini breakfast bar to maximize the space. At least the windows lining the kitchen keep things feeling bright and open!

The sleeping alcove comes with a little privacy from the living room, as it’s somewhat tucked behind a wall. The perk to this area are the built-in closets and shelving—extra storage always comes in handy when you’re living in a small space.

You can’t see it in the photo, but the bathroom still boasts the original subway tiles from when the building first opened. These quirky historic details, as well as the decent separation of space within the apartment, make this a totally livable studio. And who wouldn’t love that corner fireplace?
