Via Corcoran

One of New York City’s most unique apartments is on the market at the historic Upper West condo building, The Ansonia, and it’s asking $1.635 million. Located on the top floor of the 17-story Beaux Arts masterpiece, this quirky apartment is full of porthole windows, which the broker on the property says is reminiscent of Parisian buildings (we can see that!).

The corner apartment has two bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, and comes with four skylights spread throughout the unit. The apartment opens up into a large living room, with the kitchen just beyond that. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, a large stove, and a dishwasher; it also has a good amount of counter space.

The master bedroom here has two skylights, and based on the listing’s photos can comfortably fit a full size bed. There’s also an ensuite half bathroom, and a closet. The second bedroom, while on the smaller side, has access to a walk-in closet. The full bathroom in the unit has a large soaking tub, and benefits from having two windows.

Aside from that, this condo has central A/C, hardwood floors, and some lovely NYC views. The Ansonia was once the city’s largest hotel apartment building with 2,500 rooms. In 1992, the building was converted into 425 apartments, and residents here now have access to a garage, a roof deck, and a full-time doorman.
