This Hell’s Kitchen duplex might not have the most traditional floorplan, but it hits a lot of the must-haves: fireplace, check; outdoor space, check; two bathrooms, check; built-ins, check.
The apartment is a penthouse at 325 West 52nd Street, an elevator co-op building between Eighth and Ninth avenues. Now on the market with Compass for $1.325 million, it offers up 1,270 square feet of interior space over two floors, including a second floor master suite that opens onto a 450-square-foot terrace.
The living room is on the entry floor, and comes with built in bookshelves separated by windows with banquettes. The room’s other main amenity is its wood-burning fireplace.
A look at the floorplan shows a curved wall that separates the living area from the kitchen. The wall currently hides a sleeping nook, but a little imagination might go a long way in repurposing this space.
The kitchen is petite but functional, and includes a dishwasher and Bosch washer and dryer.
The apartment comes with a high maintenance of $2,381, but such is the nature of co-ops.
