While this jewel box of an Upper East Side co-op may not be vast, it embodies the dream of a classic Manhattan pre-war apartment. Asking $1,085,000, the beautifully renovated one-bedroom co-op at 175 East 79th Street would make the perfect pied-à-terre (they’re allowed, with board approval), from the subtle blue hue of the living room walls to the elegant hand-painted de Gournay wall covering in the foyer–and the 1928 bones that frame the entire space.

As an introduction to the home’s well-designed elegance, de Gournay “Early Views of India” frames the entry foyer, which also offers a carefully concealed coat closet. Throughout the apartment, floors have been refinished, and all plumbing and electrical systems have been upgraded.

The living room’s blue walls (Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue, to be exact) surround bespoke cabinetry. The space is framed by a north-facing iron casement window with open city views, and anchored by a wood-burning fireplace.

A masterful kitchen leaves nothing out, with a Wolf induction cooktop, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, and Miele stove and dishwasher. The hard-working appliances are joined by Waterworks fixtures, indestructible quartz worktops, and custom millwork done in a glossy, sophisticated black.

The spacious primary bedroom boasts a custom-outfitted walk-in closet. A perfectly-scaled bath features radiant heat, a striking tiled floor, and a shower clad in Thassos marble.

The boutique prewar co-op is on a coveted Upper East Side block, steps from shopping, dining and museums–and just a few blocks from Central Park. The pet-friendly building offers a full-time doorman, a live-in super, a laundry room, storage, and bike storage.
