Most tiny New York apartments are terrifying. But in the right hands, they can be turned into something amazing. That’s the case for this Park Avenue South condo, which is owned by interior designer Amir Khamneipur and which he listed today for $1.775 million.
Though the place comes in at less than 700 square feet (669 to be exact), cleverly placed windows and mirrors make it seem much, much bigger. The home was featured in the July issue of “House, Beautiful” and a 2014 article in the “Wall Street Journal,” where Khamneipur described all the tips and tricks he used to give the small apartment the feeling of space. “I would rather live in a custom jewel box than a badly designed mansion,” he told “House, Beautiful.” “This apartment brings me such joy.”
The apartment has one bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, 14-foot ceilings, 10-foot doors and custom, double-height cabinetry. Everything in the space was custom-designed by Khamneipur, and listing agent Claudia Saez-Fromm of Town Residential tells LLNYC that a buyer may be able to negotiate with Khamneipur to include the furniture with the sale.
Saez-Fromm says Khamneipur decided to sell because he received interest in the apartment after the “House, Beautiful” piece and he wants to upgrade to a two-bedroom.
