The Atelier co-op at 33 West 67th Street was built in 1908 as artist’s lofts, and though the Upper West Side building no longer caters to creatives, it still retains its gorgeous pre-war details and oversized apartments. This duplex unit, for example, has a grand, 17-foot double-height living room that features wrap-around library walls (47 feet of them, to be exact), as well as a sweeping staircase and mezzanine balcony. It’s on the market for $4,795,000.
This four-bedroom pre-war duplex would be unusual for its double-height living room alone, but the soaring internal space is graced with a stunning living wall feature that you definitely won’t find in the average Upper West Side living room. You can rent this cool space–originally an artists’ loft when the Atelier at 33 West 67th Street was constructed in 1903–for $16,450 a month.

One look at this richly decorated Central Park West maisonette in The Atelier and you’ll be swept away into a scene harkening back to 18th century Vienna where couples minuet across the floor to strains of Mozart playing softly in the background.
Turns out your imagination wouldn’t bring you too far from the truth, as in recent years this home has become a beloved gathering place for artists and art lovers alike, attracting opera singers, conductors, musical soloists, cabaret entertainers, diplomats, artists, aristocrats, and movie celebrities.
