Here’s a large studio apartment in the Upper West Side’s Verdi co-op building at 175 West 73rd Street, just two blocks from Central Park. The eighth-floor unit has a Murphy bed to free up space, some original details, and is decently priced for those who value the location.
The compact unit opens to a small entry foyer with two closets. The living area contains the retractable bed and one large closet. It has a coffered ceiling and fits a full living room setup in addition to the bed. There are some lovely plaster wall moldings throughout.
A separate dining area also contains the refrigerator and would be the size of a small bedroom if it weren’t for its location adjacent to the galley kitchen, which appears to open to also contain a second entrance to the apartment.
On the other side of the apartment is the bathroom, an additional alcove which is open to the living area and could be used as a dressing room, and a fourth closet.
The amenity-rich building boasts a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, bike and storage room, central laundry, and communal roof deck.
At just $605,000, the unit’s sweet location if diminutive size makes it a relative deal, although the monthly maintenance fee of $1,055 is not cheap.
