This classic one-bedroom-plus-loft co-op at 71 East 77th Street, asking $1,295,000, has definitely seen the benefits of a designer and architect. Rooms retain their gracious pre-war proportions and high beamed ceilings, plus extras like closets and an entry foyer. The living room offers a wood-burning fireplace and there are one-and-a-half baths–including a secret powder room tucked behind a library bookshelf wall. The comfort factor is up-to-date, with central A/C and a renovated kitchen and bathrooms.

The living room is a showcase of pre-war charm, framed by double-height beamed ceilings, an oversized antique stained-glass window, and burnished hardwood floors, anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. As a convenient architectural perk, there’s a loft above the room (not pictured) with a built-in bed for guests.

The beautifully-renovated windowed kitchen features solid wood countertops and cabinetry. Hard-working appliances include a Miele dishwasher and oven, a Thermador cooktop, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.

A central dining room/library with walls done in a deep delphinium blue is partially lined with built-in bookshelves. In another brilliant architectural flourish, a powder room is concealed behind a section of bookshelf wall (you can see it here).

The spacious, carpeted bedroom has an en-suite bath. There are two closets: a cedar closet and a regular walk-in. The walls are done in a crisp blue stripe pattern, accentuating the apartment’s charming Deco-era steel-framed casement windows.

The pet-friendly full-service cooperative building offers a 24-hour doorman, a live-in-super, mail delivery to your door, bike and private storage, a laundry room, and a charming lobby. Pieds-a-terre are also permitted.
