Nestled on the top floor of turn-of-the-century Georgian mansion off Fifth Avenue, this super-sophisticated one-bedroom is a rare breed: it’s rather elegant, and yet not totally devoid of personality. The $1.095 million abode may only have three rooms, but what three rooms they are.
The sun-drenched living/dining area features oversized south-facing windows (thus the light) and a decorative fireplace; the bedroom is theoretically big enough for two queen beds and comes equipped with a massive closet; and the deep-brown-and-white kitchen comes with Corian countertops. That’s not to mention the veritable roster of charming details throughout the home—herringbone floors, soaring ceilings, and original wainscoting give the condo distinctive character.
Speaking of character, the entryway is done up in “distinguished” David Hicks brown-and-white wallpaper, while the bathroom has an equally charming, if vaguely Dalmatian-like, motif. The apartment is just steps from the Met—appropriately, since the building it’s located in is part of the Metropolitan Museum Historic District, designated in 1977.
