As if the building name–The Penny Lane–of this unusual home at 215 East 24th Street in Manhattan’s Kips Bay wasn’t sweet enough, the building is a former ice cream factory that was transformed into a full-service co-op. On the market for $825,000, this maisonette-style apartment is accessible through a private entrance from the street or via a full-service lobby. It’s a duplex of sorts, with loft-like proportions and an interesting layout.

The private entryway feels like a townhouse hall; glass walls between rooms add to the loft-like feel.

The duplex has a renovated kitchen with a cool industrial look including subway tiles, dark accents, and stainless steel appliances. The home’s one bath has been recently updated as well.

The large bedroom is bounded in part by glass: Great for light, not so much for privacy. A second interior chamber is being used as a den/office, but it can easily be converted into a second bedroom. Add a Juliet balcony, 16-foot ceilings, exposed brick, iron beams and plenty of storage for a truly unique space.

The Penny Lane is just a short walk from the Gramercy neighborhood and Madison Square Park. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a roof deck, a live-in super, a garage, bike storage and two laundry rooms on each floor.
