When looking at Manhattan apartments, it’s hard sometimes to avoid the cookie-cutter trap, especially when looking at one-bedrooms. Pre-war units can be more diverse, but there’s still plenty of the generic. This lovely one-bedroom co-op in an elevator building at 329 West 108th Street is definitely exceptional in that regard. The combination of two 1890s townhouses that resulted in this boutique co-op brought with it interior details like warm wooden beams, mosaic tiles, oversized bay windows and leaded glass–which remain to charm and set the apartment apart from the crowd.

Everywhere you look in this know-it-when-you-see-it home, you’ll find turn-of-the-previous-century, museum quality details: quarter- and rift-sawn oak herringbone and parquet floors, leaded glass, ornate moldings, and original woodwork surrounding oversized doorways, windows and nearly 11-foot ceilings.

As you walk through the foyer into the sprawling living room you’ll notice that the oversized bay windows face south onto handsome period townhomes that line 108th Street. The centerpiece of the living room is the massive fireplace (currently decorative, but could possibly be restored to wood-burning) with original glazed tile and an oversized mantle.

An eat-in-kitchen with a built-in cafe-style table has been renovated with white cabinetry for plenty of storage space, black granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

The bedroom is equally impressive with stunning features that are rare in even the most meticulously preserved homes. In addition to original wood beams the room features a decorative border of original hand-painted pastoral tableaux.

The bathroom has been updated while paying homage to pre-war style, and there is a large walk-in closet that has lots of storage space and is big enough to include an office area.

In a fantastic spot between Riverside Park and Broadway, this elevator building offers a part-time doorman, live-in super and common garden.
