The centerpiece of this Upper West Side co-op at 2 West 67th Street is a stunning double-height living room with a 16-foot, north-facing window that spreads light throughout the apartment. Originally a sculptor’s studio, the prewar three-bedroom recently underwent a complete renovation by architect Andrew B. Ballard, who curated the residence with custom furniture—including spectacular oak bookcases—rugs, and sculptures that honor its artistic past. Just listed for $4,150,000, the home is steps away from Lincoln Center and Central Park West.

The architects of 2 West 67th Street, Rich & Mathesius, were inspired by the infamous Hôtel des Artistes located just across the street at 1 West 67th Street when they set out to design a complementary building filled with artist’s studios. It’s one of the only studio buildings in the West 67th Street Artists Colony Historic District with views of Central Park, making it a very covetable location.

In addition to the stunning window which has been restored to feature the original steel mullions, the living room also boasts a marble fireplace wall with bronze inlay, oak paneling, and 13-foot custom bookcases. Sculptures and tasteful objects are placed throughout the space, including ironwork by Edgar Brandt and glasswork by Rene Lalique.

Since guests always tend to congregate near the kitchen—whether you want them to or not—the kitchen here was designed with entertainment in mind. It features a large central island with eight seats, custom-lacquer cabinetry, and a walk-in pantry. A large office space with a private en-suite bathroom and room for plenty of books is also on this floor.

The upper level overlooks the living room and includes a master bedroom suite with a cheery glass-tile bathroom and two walk-in closets.
