New York City

Tucked away in the rear of a 1858 landmark townhouse this home has been carefully remade with a nod to the original details. Smart space planning maximizes every inch of the mini apartment with integrated storage. Modern compact appliances— including under-counter pull-out drawer refrigerator and dishwasher, all-in-one microwave/oven, etc— make up for the lack of SF. A Stuv high-efficiency wood burning stove is inserted into the original fireplace. A hidden sleeping room off the living area opens to the rear garden. Built in wood shutters provide privacy and light control.
