This sprawling co-op in a classic pre-war building at 532 West 111th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side offers a considerable amount of space for its ask of $1,495,000–if you don’t mind navigating the awkward twists and turns often found in pre-war apartments. The co-op’s interior design takes its cue from a Mondrian painting, bringing creativity and color to its classic 20th-century architecture.

In a 1910 building on a tree-lined street, the apartment features hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, plenty of closet space, and oversized windows. In the living room, well-preserved wood built-ins complement the home’s colorful paneling for a mid-century vibe. The windowed galley kitchen gets the brightly-paneled treatment, accented by chunky geometric cabinet pulls.

The large formal dining room is more sedate, with unique Arts and Crafts-style wood paneling and cabinetry accented by Louis Poulson pendant lights.

Bedrooms also have built-in cabinetry and furniture, for an urban Frank Lloyd Wright effect. The home has three bedrooms, including a small staff room behind the kitchen with a built-in desk and en-suite WC, and there is plenty of room for re-interpretation of the space–including the addition of a second full bath in a slightly less remote location.

The pre-war co-op building features an elegant lobby, a live-in super, laundry in the building, a video intercom, and bike and cold storage.
