If you’re the kind of person that could spend hours curled up on the couch with a book, this two-bedroom apartment is pretty much the perfect place to do that. It’s located at the cooperative 242 West 104th Street, in the Riverside Drive area of the Upper West Side. The interior design resembles the best kind of library—warm colors, exposed brick, even a rolling ladder that runs the length of the main hallway. The only thing a buyer would need to add? Lots more bookshelves!

The apartment is connected by one long hallway which runs the length of the entire space. Currently the ladder offers access to shelving up near the ceiling, in order to make room for artwork below. The hallway does work as a great makeshift gallery space, if you’d rather not have it lined with bookshelves.

When you end up in the living room, it’s decked out with detailed parquet floors, wainscoting and a bay window. The dark blue wall and a decorative fireplace really solidify the library-like vibe.

The open kitchen is located right off the living room. Dark wood cabinetry and hanging exposed lightbulbs really look nice here. There’s also a cooking range stationed right on the eat-in kitchen island, which you don’t see every day.

Each bedroom is located on opposite sides of the apartment. (The listing suggests that one could easily be used for office space, as well.) The front bedroom continues the apartment theme of exposed brick and has plenty of open wall space for more artwork. The rear bedroom looks smaller but comes with double exposures, including two south-facing windows toward the surrounding buildings and treetops.

Who doesn’t love a clawfoot tub? The bathroom continues with the warm design theme of dark blue walls, which are offset by a white subway tiles, and the exposed hanging lightbulbs. Even this room seems like a nice place to hang out and peruse a book!
