The main living area in this charming Upper West Side studio at 123 West 80th Street only adds up to 240 square feet, but within that are all the old-world details you could ask for. For starters, there’s that enormous carved wood fireplace with a mirror that will at least add the perception of more space. Other features include original parquet wood floors, an elegant chandelier, and carved south-facing windows with restored shutters. The unit was originally listed at the beginning of the month for $539,000 and just got a $10,000 cut on its asking price. The central location—just steps away from the American Natural History Museum—certainly contributes to that.

There’s not a whole lot of room to play around with furniture layouts, but the current configuration manages to squeeze in a bed by the windows and a sitting area for one. Black paint highlights the architectural details and those tree-lined street views—even if the window bars get in the way a bit. 12-foot ceilings and plenty of natural light make the room feel more spacious.

The living area is open to an eat-in kitchen featuring cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops, and a copper rust/slate backsplash. As far as studio kitchens go, this one is pretty generously-sized and comes with a built-in microwave and four-burner range.

Built in 1890, the nine-unit co-op offers laundry and common storage in the basement. Maintenance fees are relatively low at $504 a month. Cats are allowed but dogs and pieds-a-terre are not.
