This is a one of a kind apartment. As the door opens, you immediately see the far, triangle shaped wall covered with bookshelves from the floor to the ceiling with a great little stained glass window. As you walk through the door there is a small hall closet, perfect for coats, long garments and misc. stuff. As you continue in, to the left is the sunk-in bathroom, you walk down two steps and are greeted by a shower, w/c, and vanity along with a lovely small widow/skylight that opens to the east letting in great morning light.

The island opens into the living room and has an overhang perfect for bar stools.
The living room is dominated by two features the cathedral ceiling that is cover with rough-saw ceder, that climbs up the walls all the way to the peak of the roof  (almost 20 feet).

Beside the ladder is a large closet concealed in the wall.
The other dominate feature of this apartment is the turret. You pass through a large opening surrounded by large beams, and an portion of an exposed brick curved wall.
