This sprawling loft-like duplex located within Morgan Studios, a prewar building along East 78th Street, is far from your average Upper East Side apartment. Classic design has been merged with a stunning renovation that has contributed to the unique style of this one-bedroom home.
The living room has been appointed with 13-foot ceilings that complement the wall of massive casement windows. A wood-burning fireplace is surrounded by a custom mantle and neighbored by a stylish wine rack wall on one side followed by a set of sleek built-in shelves on the other.
The windowed kitchen is located on the upper level and is very narrow but nevertheless charming. After its revamp, the space offers ample counter space, open glass shelves, and fancy stainless steel appliances. The dining area sits adjacent to the kitchen and overlooks the living room.
The en-suite bedroom isn’t huge per se, but is decent enough and the bathroom has sports marble walls and floors.
Monthly maintenance will cost you $2,618 but if you’re already spending $1.5 million on this abode, that shouldn’t be much of a problem.
