Location is the draw when it comes to this studio apartment at the Franconia co-op, located right off Central Park West at 20 West 72nd Street. It’s a very cozy space that will require a Murphy bed setup. As for a dining table…forget it. But who needs a big apartment when you’ve got Central Park and the Upper West Side right outside your door? The current apartment owner looks to be Johanna Rosaly, a Puerto Rican actress, singer, and television host. She bought it in 2011 for $270,000 and has listed it at a significant bump, for $425,000.

According to the listing, this is a high-floor apartment that faces west and brings in nice light. There’s not a whole lot to look at in the living area, which is just large enough for a sofa, a few chairs and a desk. Bring down the Murphy bed and it’s a comfortable bedroom space.

This tiny kitchen only boasts a hot plate and a small fridge. At least the Upper West Side has plenty of restaurants to frequent instead.

At least the bathroom is regular size!

The Franconia holds 169 apartments and was built in 1925. The apartment may be small but you get all the perks of a full-service co-op located off Central Park: a resident superintendent, central laundry, a children’s playroom, storage and bike room. And did we already mention the part about being less than a half block from Central Park?
