Looking for a starter apartment with personality? This junior one bedroom, located at the prewar Soho co-op 124 Thompson Street, is now on the market asking $785,000. The corner unit was carefully designed by an architect back in 2011, but recently changed hands, selling to actress Kay Story in 2015 for $780,000. It’s being offered to a new buyer with all sorts of fun perks, like a bar and wine fridge, customized closets and soundproof windows.

As soon as you walk through the entrance you’re surrounded in a dark, rich blue — get used to that color because it’s used throughout the apartment. One of the other things you’re immediately greeted with is a cute bar and wine fridge, located ideally for a party.

The living and dining room area isn’t big, but you can tell someone has tried to maximize the space by completely opening it up. The blue accents, exposed brick, beamed ceilings and wood breakfast bar also bring a warmth and coziness to the apartment.

The renovated kitchen, says the listing, has “all the high end appliances you could dream of,” plus a beautiful open shelving system that creates tons of storage without closing the kitchen off with cabinetry.

We told you there was a lot of blue to be had here! The sleeping area isn’t separated by a full wall, which is what makes this a junior one bedroom. And the bathroom might be small, but it’s been done up with bells and whistles: a rain shower, marble-tiled floor with radiant heat, a wall-mounted toilet, a custom mirrored cabinet with built-in storage and a laundry hamper (good idea!). Decorating the walls are handmade (blue, of course) tiles made by the fancy ceramicist Heath. While this may just be a starter apartment, it’s one that’s filled with luxuries and personality.
