On a particularly picturesque and leafy Upper West Side block within steps of Riverside Park, this one-bedroom co-op at 312 West 107th Street is, to paraphrase the listing, a certifiable charm-and-chill zone with 15-foot ceilings, exposed brick, a wood-burning fireplace and a private terrace.
The living area is anchored by the working brick fireplace, sure to be an inviting curl-up spot when temperatures cool. A white cube of sorts has been built-in, loft-style. Underneath is the kitchen; above the kitchen is a sizable nook for storage or sleeping (acrophobes should take note that the means to accessing the loft space appears to be a fairly tall ladder).
In warmer months your own small (but private) balcony makes a great urban refuge for one or a gathering.
The kitchen, tucked beneath the loft platform, functions as a cooking space that’s separate from–but still connected to–the living area.
The home’s bedroom has windows on both walls and a full wall of exposed brick. The bath is cool, calm and functional.
The boutique co-op offers laundry in the basement, storage and a roof deck with Hudson River views.
