Real Estate Want: Beautiful built-ins

By Emmalie Vance  | March 22, 2012 - 2:43PM

Built-ins can make all the difference in a cramped NYC apartment.

But it's not always easy to create ones that work seamlessly in the apartment and don't appear like a last resort for those desperate for storage space. 

This architectural gem of a pre-war loft on West 55th (between 9th and 10th Aves)--on the market for $850,000--features several applications of modern office built-ins, with a classic twist: A rolling ladder, which helps residents take full advantage of the 12-foot-high ceilings.

We'd love to have these convenient cubbies to keep our valuables off the floor and our minds.
