Full of antiques and paintings, this Manhattan pre-war co-op looks more like a fine art museum than a New York City apartment. Found in the enclave of Sutton Place at 419 East 57th Street, the lively maisonette duplex has two bedrooms, a 24-foot-long great room, and an expansive dining room, with handpainted trompe-l’oeil details throughout the home. Asking $2,695,000, the ground-floor apartment has its own street-level entrance.

Entering the first level of the home through the dramatic, brick-arched private entrance, there’s a powder room and a foyer with closet space. The aptly-named great room provides multiple flexible seating and entertaining areas, along with a decorative fireplace and over 9-foot ceilings.

This level is also home to an elegant formal dining room, which has an intricately decorated gold ceiling and marble floors. It connects to the chef’s kitchen, which there are no photos of in the listing. But according to the floorplan, the kitchen is large enough to accommodate a casual dining space. There’s a washer-dryer, a dishwasher, and an additional entrance from the lobby.

The art exhibition continues up the curved staircase, which features metal balustrades. The stairs lead to the upper level of the home, which can also be accessed by elevator.

From the curving staircase, find a long hallway that leads to what’s currently set up as a library, but easily could become a third bedroom, especially with its abundance of closet space. The doors in the library feature painted scenes and illustrated bookshelves, adding to an overall feeling of fantasy.

The two bedrooms have decent storage space, south-facing windows, and access to two full baths.

Located on a private Sutton Place street, the maisonette sits within a full-service 17-floor cooperative that was built in 1927. Perks include a four-hour doorman and resident manager, a bike room, a gym, private storage, and an expanded and replanted roof deck. Pets and pieds-a-terre are permitted.
