This beautifully arranged, light-filled studio is the perfect Upper West Side sanctuary in a historic co-op building just inches from Central Park and the Natural History Museum.
Fantastic northern light, hardwood floors and swaths of exposed and whitewashed brick invite you inside this spacious home. In the main living space, you'll find plenty of room for living, dining and home office areas alongside two large windows that overlook the neighborhood's iconic architecture. A full staircase leads you to the expansive loft area that can easily accommodate a queen-size bed. The contemporary kitchen features abundant cabinet space, tile backsplashes and nicely sized appliances, including a refrigerator, gas range and built-in microwave. In the bathroom, enjoy a large tub/shower, roomy vanity and medicine cabinet all surrounded by charming beadboard wainscoting. An extra-wide closet in the living area and a coat closet near the entry provide plenty of storage in the lovely studio home.
Originally constructed in 1885, 56 West 82nd Street was once a row of four stunning Romanesque Revival houses in brick and brownstone. Converted to cooperative use in 1978, the boutique building offers storage, laundry and reasonable monthly maintenance.

Central Park delivers 840 acres of iconic outdoor space at the end of the block. At the American Museum of Natural History, you'll enjoy the wonderful grounds and greenmarket.
