A pristine duplex co-op suffused with natural light, this tranquil 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom home is a study in contemporary urban charm. Features of this gut-renovated apartment, designed by Messana O'Rorke, include gorgeous dark hardwood floors, western exposure, an abundance of closet and storage space, and a unique layout that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the building.
The home opens directly into a bright, open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen. A convenient coat closet sits just beyond the front door, while the kitchen is equipped with sleek white Corian countertops and cabinets, a glass tile backsplash, and a suite of Miele, Wolf, Liebherr, and Bosch appliances. Extra storage is available beneath the staircase.
The upper level of the home contains a pair of spacious bedrooms and an immaculate bathroom with a 21” soaking tub, Toto toilet, Vola fixtures throughout, and Mosa architectural tiled walls. The master bedroom possesses a wall of built-in closets and an workstation nook, both of which are neatly concealed behind floor to ceiling doors. The second bedroom has private closets space as well as innovative murphy bunkbeds.
