There are some apartments in New York that leave you at a loss of words. This one, a triplex co-op at 403 East 87th Street in the Upper East Side, has a decor that definitely stands out. The best we could come up with in describing it was “medieval castle,” with its wood detailing, dark red furniture, and antique collection of books. Even the backyard space has some distinctive lighting and decor. If that’s your thing, it is now on the market for $1.795 million.

This apartment is also boasting a very unique floor plan spread over three stories. On the first floor, you’ve got the kitchen plus the open living and dining room pictured above. The second floor has the master bedroom, en suite bathroom, and a sitting room. The third floor has the second bedroom, closets and another bathroom.

The master bedroom is lavishly decorated and almost looks like it’s up on a pedestal. From here, the window looks down onto the apartment’s private garden. As you can see, there’s a sitting room a few steps below.

From the master bedroom, you can take an open staircase up to the third floor. What’s up with that mysterious door on the righthand of the stairway? It would be quite castle-like if it led to a secret passageway, but our guess is that it’s just closet space.

And here’s a look at the third floor, a nice place to relax and read a fancy book. The listing says this space, outside of the second bedroom, could also double as an office.

From the first floor living room, you have access to both a lower and upper patio. Plenty of space for seating, landscaping, and more unique decorations. This apartment makes a statement inside and out—and it’s not coming cheap.
