New, 5 comments

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.


The Neo-Gothic building at 555 Washington Avenue in Clinton Hill was originally built in 1916 as the Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception, but in 1988 (way before it was trendy), the architectural gem was converted into apartments. And those apartments have such unique details as arched ceilings, small round windows, pillars, and original moldings?all features one would find in this duplex one-bedroom. Currently listed for $849,000, the unit's upper floor sits at ground level with a private garden, and the lower basement level is an open "recreation room" with terrazzo flooring. A steel spiral staircase connects the two. The place measures 1,250-square-feet and common charges will run you $701.
