Intrigued by all the new developments and fancy celebs moving to the far West Village, but want something a bit less pretentious and pricey? Here's an apartment that gives a good sense of what ~$1 million buys in the neighborhood. Inside, a full report from Curbed's real estate spy on 296 West 10th Street, Apt 2S, which has an open house tonight from 6-7pm.
What: 2bed/2bath apartment (950 sq. ft) in 1998 condo building
Where: 296 West 10th St (@ Washington St), Apt. 2S
Asking: $1.115 million
Broker: Louise Phillips Group, Halstead
Curbed's real estate spy reports: "Love love love this apartment if you're in the market for a 2bed or 1bed with office and don't want the hassle of renovations. Great floorplan and excellent light for a low floor. Sandwiched between the Richard Meier towers and Morton Square, the apartment has been on the market for two months and has a couple offers outstanding but none accepted. Current owners liked the building so much they moved upstairs to a larger place. Downsides (for some): no doorman, and it's around the corner from the adult shops on the West Side Highway. Hey-ya!"
