This 650-square-foot pad is nestled inside a six-story, Beaux Arts brick and limestone townhouse located just across the street from the Museum of Modern Art. Located at 35 West 54th Street, in Midtown West, this is a former one-bedroom apartment renovated into a spacious, open studio by its owner architect. The reno retained some of the classic Beaux Arts details while giving the interior a modern look.
The building boasts a lovely marble lobby, with its very own art display. This studio is located on an upper floor, accessed by the elevator.
Inside, you walk into a 20-foot by 21-foot open living area with 10-foot ceilings, oak floors and a working wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen is located in a corner alcove. And to distinguish the sleeping area from the rest of the apartment, the architect designed a built-in platform for a queen bed. The renovation also added some custom banquettes and bookshelves.
The historic co-op building is just gorgeous, and apartments come with a view of the entrance in the MoMA. If that sounds nice, don’t forget that Fifth Avenue, Carnegie Hall and Central Park are all within walking distance, too.
