Luxurious homes are often thought of as being necessarily huge, as if having a great home were simply a matter of owning more square footage. This compact Upper West Side studio proves otherwise. Yes, it’s a studio, so there are no bedrooms at all! But with the thoughtful design here, you won’t miss them.
It all (literally) hinges on a magnificent queen-sized, Italian-made Murphy bed that doubles as a fold-out desk with a stylish bank of floating shelves above it. No, you do not need to take things off the shelves to use the bed: models such as this one pivot, hiding the bed behind the shelves when not in use.
This means that the bright and spacious main living area with its Manhattan skyline view transforms without clutter throughout the day: from home office to hangout space to cozy bedroom. Built-in shelving and cabinetry surround the generous windows with handsome storage and display spaces.
Finding room to cook and dine won’t be a challenge here. The kitchen itself is compact in scale, but the pass-through extends sightlines and counter space while offering a convenient breakfast bar.
Consequently, with plenty of countertop, there’s no need to skimp on the appliances. We can see that the range and oven in this kitchen is the real deal and looks to be at least full-sized, if not larger!
When living in an apartment unit, building amenities can greatly enhance the experience. Nevada Towers has all the premium essentials, including additional storage, outdoor deck access, and laundry. Pied-à-terre usage and subletting are welcomed, too, meaning that this home could be a primary residence, an urban getaway, home base while in town for business, or an investment.
Put all this in a coveted location with the Hudson on one side and Central Park on the other, and it’s clear that this unit is all about flexibility, freedom, and fun.
