Located just one block away from Central Park, this one-bedroom penthouse at 140 West 58th Street offers modern living in a classic Midtown West pre-war building. Dark-framed casement windows, fresh white walls, and black accents set a graphic palette and contemporary tone. The best part? Each room has views of the enormous wrap-around terrace that circles the residence. Now on the market for $975,000, the residence last sold in 2015 for $873,777.
You’ll enter into the bright living area, where the black-framed casement windows stand out against the white walls and floors. The exposed bricks around the original wood-burning fireplace have also been painted white, and they bring a bit of texture into the pristine space.
Double doors open onto the wrap-around terrace that will have you feeling fully immersed in the Midtown skyline. The listing doesn’t reveal precise numbers but judging by the plan, the terrace equals, if not exceeds, the interior square footage. It would be a perfect blank canvas for an avid gardener and comes outfitted with a gas grill hook up and an outdoor shower.
The living room flows into the dining area and kitchen, which both boast large windows overlooking the terrace. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and contemporary additions like open shelving and a chalkboard wall.
The bedroom is just large enough to fit a queen size bed. Though it doesn’t have a closet (the only closet in the unit is a large walk-in by the entrance), it has two large windows that bring light in and help the compact space feel airy.
The mostly black-and-white palette goes away in the bathroom, which swaps the black for a pale green. The serene space has a soaking tub, stall shower, and bowl sink.
140 West 58th Street is a pre-war co-op building dating back to 1930. Even though you’ll be at the top of the nine-story building, an elevator will save you from shlepping up all those flights. Other building amenities include a laundry room, extra storage in the basement, and a live-in superintendent.
