At first, the sticker shock is quite dramatic: $7.5 million for a one-bedroom apartment?! But after peeking in on the floorplan and reading the brokerspeak, it starts to make a little more sense. A little more sense. As you can see from the above, the duplex penthouse at 299 West 12th Street?plopped on top of a Bing & Bing condo in Abingdon Square?has large planted terraces on both floors and a winding marble staircase sure to impress whomever it is you're trying to impress by spending over seven million dollars on a one-bedroom apartment. In a unique touch, the entrance takes you into the upper level of the apartment, with the bedroom placed on the lower floor; a bedroom cited by Elle Decor as one of the world's 100 most ravishing rooms, by the way. Yep, it's an interesting home, and you can see some photos of it after the jump.
