Have you ever gazed out of your office window with envy at a sweet private back garden or cool roof deck right in the middle of Manhattan? This one-bedroom co-op at 315 West 55th Street is one of those. On a beloved residential block in Hell’s Kitchen on the city’s West Side, this updated apartment has enough room for comfort and the added bonus of a landscaped, full-sized back garden oasis. It’s perfect in spring and summer, but magical year-round as it’s visible through a pair of sliding glass doors whenever you enter the living room.
This cozy apartment offers the warmth of painted brick and the elegance of dark-stained parquet wood floors, while a full updated kitchen with a custom backsplash over black granite countertops, a dishwasher and stainless steel fridge offer modernity and everyday convenience.
A good-sized bedroom, a clean, white, well-appointed bath and plenty of closet space keep it comfortable.
The size and layout are good for entertaining, separating living and sleeping areas, and the living room flows beautifully into the garden beyond.
This 1945 elevator building offers central laundry and a live-in super on a standout residential street whose block association’s tree-lighting has been a joyful holiday event for 36 years. Not only is Central Park within a few blocks, but so is the theater district, Columbus Circle shopping, Lincoln Center, the west side piers, and the restaurants, museums and markets of the Upper West Side. And while so much of the city is at your fingertips, the Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton enclave between 8th and 9th Avenues is a vibrant residential community that has, in recent years, become one of the city’s favorites, filled with families, newcomers and old-timers of all ages.
