A Murray Hill co-op with an elegant, old-world vibe

Share this Article

You'll be forgiven for thinking you've stepped into a classic Noel Coward comedy if you visit this full-floor two-bedroom, two-bath—two separate apartments being sold as a combination by Brown Harris Stevens for $1.495 million—in Murray Hill: It's got an elegant, throwback charm that many New York City apartments sadly no longer have, their period details jettisoned for all that's new and sometimes bland.

There's nothing bland about this co-op, starting with the living room (pictured above and below) with its woodburning fireplaces with marble mantelpieces, crown moldings, and hardwood floors.

The ceilings are 11 feet high and extend throughout the space; wooden shutters and paneled doors add to the "NYC of yore" feel, while the apartment and the building, a townhouse, keep in step with modern times through an updated kitchen.

The bedrooms are equally as charming, too. Prewar fans, line up!
