This is the kind of apartment that you want to be friends with. It’s a truly lovely co-op apartment at the prewar building 500 West 111th Street, just south of Columbia University and just west of Morningside Park in the Morningside Heights neighborhood. It’s quite large, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It’s also got awesomely high ceilings, lots of built-in bookshelves, and big windows that are streaming tons of light in. Another bonus is that the windows look out onto the great Cathedral of St. John the Divine, a local landmark.

Of course, such good friends–er, apartments–are hard to come by, especially in such a prime uptown location. The price tag for the co-op is high, asking $1.375 million.

The two big living room windows come with the St. John the Divine views. The layout of the apartment is almost a railroad style, although there’s a hallway running throughout so you won’t have to pass through any rooms. The open living room and eat-in kitchen are located to the front. Then a long hallway leads to all three bedrooms, stacked behind the kitchen, and both bathrooms. The built-in bookshelves on display in the living room are definitely a theme of the apartment.

It’s hard not to like this open kitchen. The white cabinetry and tile backsplash, paired with the light blue walls, makes the rest of the apartment feel bright. You’ve got high coffered ceilings above, also accented white and blue, plus two more large windows. And there’s enough room for both a large breakfast bar and a dining area.

Here’s the master bedroom, which has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. Not as bright as the rest of the apartment, but at least it looks spacious.

The current owner is using the other two bedrooms to hold their impressive book collection. All the built-in shelving, which takes full advantage of the high ceilings, is a great addition, and looks good with the oak flooring below. It’s official: We totally want to hang out with this apartment.
