Talk about a (one bed) room with a view! The most expensive one-bedroom residence in the city is a Fifth Avenue co-op with an almost $7 million price tag.

Along with its one bedroom, the penthouse at 969 Fifth Avenue — which judging from the floor plan is essentially a railroad-style apartment — comes complete with a private elevator door that opens into the living room, a wood-burning fireplace, a marble bathroom, a library which could double as a guest room, and a lot of very charming windows.

Then there’s the almost-wrap-around terrace with its views of Central Park and the city, which, we’d wager, is the true selling point of this pad.

While the price per square foot is unknown, we’d bet it rivals some of the swankiest new developments in the city.

The listing, with Patricia Burnham of P.S. Burnham, notes that the unit can be combined with the floor below to make a duplex. The apartment in question is also available, and is a three-bedroom spread asking $7 million — just $5,000 more than this penthouse.
