If you’re looking for a (Manhattan) budget-friendly studio in a neighborhood like Gramercy Park, chances are you’ll be seeing lots of tiny spaces. But we’ve seen some genius ways to turn a tiny apartment into a great place to live, and this studio co-op at 22 Irving Place (where everyone’s favorite downtown Manhattan neighborhoods merge) showcases some fine examples. Outfitted with custom cabinetry that often does double duty and also looks great, this diminutive dwelling packs storage and modern amenities into a bright and cheerful home with treetop views overlooking a private garden.
On the sleeping side of things is a Murphy bed tucked behind a stylish floor-to-ceiling custom-milled wood cabinet.
On the opposite side of the apartment adjacent the kitchen, matching shelving conceals a a drop-down table; a drop-down desk and under-cabinet lighting maximize the functionality of the space; both fold back up into sleek display cabinets.
A modern kitchen and bath offer sufficient storage and counter space. The bath has a full-sized walk-in shower and some interesting rustic tiles.
Even the window A/C is a space-saver here (though we aren’t sure it’s included in the sale). The building offers a live-in super and laundry facilities.
