You can do a lot with 330 square feet, and for proof, look no further than this studio apartment at 45 Tudor City Place, one of the co-ops that makes up Tudor City in Murray Hill. The unit has just hit the market for an appealing price tag of $364,000. It’s a corner studio with exposures to the south and west and views over Tudor City Park. Large closets and a murphy bed help with storage, while high ceilings and the large, original windows provide extra breathing room.
The listing calls this “the most desirable studio line in the building” due to its corner location. There are two big closets in here, and a murphy bed can be shielded by accordion doors. The compact kitchen, too, can be tucked away behind doors so it is no longer visible from the living room. Extra charming touches in here include the 8-foot-six-inch beamed ceilings and the windows original to the Gothic Revival building.
The apartment may not be huge, but residents share a lovely roof deck with sweeping views of the Chrysler Building and Midtown skyline. Other amenities include a 24-hour doorman, fitness room, bike room, and shared storage space.
The historic facade of the building has been well maintained, not to mention the impressive lobby decked out with stained glass windows, arched entryways, rugs and oil paintings. 45 Tudor City Place is part of a larger co-op complex designed in the 1920s by architect Frederick French. The buildings are known for compact co-ops asking fairly reasonable prices, just like this one.
