Even if this one-bedroom co-op at 22 West 76th Street were just another pre-war loft-like home, its location on one of the Upper West Side‘s prettiest blocks just seconds from Central Park would make it a find at $599,000. The fact that it sits within an elegant historic limestone townhouse with a gracefully curving front makes it even more unique.
The main feature of this one-bedroom unit is its frame of three large, curved picture windows overlooking iconic tree-lined views of limestone and brownstone residences. 18-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls contribute an old-world loft feel.
An open kitchen and Italian-tiled bath lie just past the entrance. A breakfast bar with seating extends the usefulness of the space; furniture used as bathroom and kitchen pieces give the home a rustic, casual appearance.
On the loft side of things, an actual loft sits above the bedroom along the back wall. In the bedroom, beamed ceilings and wood paneling add character to this corner chamber.
From the top of the loft, currently used as an office/study, you can gaze down on the apartment’s main floor and beyond to the classic Manhattan street life below.
The building features an elegant lobby, a new roof deck and basement storage with laundry. Note that pied-a-terres are not permitted at this co-op.
