There are lots of perks that come with a top-floor apartment, including this duplex at the Dover Condominium. The building is located right in the heart of Harlem at 252 West 123rd Street. The second level of the space has both a skylight and private terrace, where you’ve got views of all the neighborhood landmarks including the Apollo Theater. As for interior design, lots of exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace keep things feeling cozy.

The living room and open kitchen are located downstairs. It’s not a huge room–you may have trouble fitting both a dining room table and a couch in there–but it’s definitely charming. That’s in no small part to all the exposed brick that frames the working fireplace. While exposed brick certainly isn’t the best surface to hang artwork, the owners got creative.

The kitchen is separated from the living room by a two-seat breakfast bar. It comes with a dishwasher, and there is also a washer/dryer unit in the apartment.

Now upstairs to the duplex, which holds the bedroom. The apartment comes with about 860 square feet total.

The lofty bedroom gets tons of light both from the skylight and the glass doors leading out to a terrace. What a great amenity to have as soon as you wake up. You also get rights to the roof, which adds another 458 square feet of outdoor space to your pad. Not a bad place to look out onto Harlem in the least!
