There’s 8 closets and room to sleep 3 at this $495K Midtown studio

This Midtown East studio may be compact, but it certainly has a lot of storage space and room for guests (if you don’t mind getting a little cozy). Located at 235 East 49th Street, just a stone’s throw from the UN, the co-op was designed by award-winning architect Robert Garneau, who specializes in small-space layouts. Not only are there a whopping eight closets, but a Murphy bed plus sleeping loft means that three people can spend the night. Other perks include a gas fireplace and pocket doors for added privacy.

A foyer is an added bonus, and you’ll find the first three closets here. This is the first space that can be partitioned off via custom-made sliding pocket doors.

The previous photo shows how the main living space looks with the Murphy bed down. But, as seen directly above, when it’s not time to sleep, the space becomes an open, airy living room. It’s even more bright thanks to the 13.5-foot ceilings and four large windows. Flanking the Murphy bed is a full wall of custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling closets. Their crisp whiteness goes nicely with the solid oak flooring. On the other wall, a custom entertainment console conceals a large flat-screen TV, which rises up from behind the ethanol fireplace. There’s a TV projector and a full surround sound system.

The kitchen features a Smeg oven, Wolf induction cooktop, KitchenAid refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher. There’s tons of cabinet space, and even room for a small dining table. When the Murphy bed is open, the kitchen can also be partitioned off with pocket doors, the same sliding doors used for the bathroom.

As mentioned, the separate loft space can sleep two.

Even the bathroom has been smartly designed, with double mirrored sinks, a walk-in stall shower with a glass door, a custom chandelier, and a frosted window for privacy.

As the listing says, this home is “the perfect space for a Pied-a-Terre or first-time homebuyer,” especially considering its proximity to the UN, Midtown, and Grand Central.

Built in 1926, the 12-story building has a total of 75 units. It offers residents a landscaped roof deck, common laundry room, and a part-time doorman. Guarantors, co-purchasing, and parents buying for kids are allowed, in addition to subletting for two years for the length of ownership.
