Buried behind a 20th-century, eight-unit building on East 81st Street is this three-story white clapboard house, only accessible through the front building. Apartment #G at 229 East 81st Street, which faces onto the landscaped patio between the two buildings, was asking $320,000 and recently entered contract, but it seems worth a look nonetheless. (And hey, maybe a higher bidder still has time to swoop in with an offer.) The 1BR, 1BA place has some quirky design elements?a mirrored wall; a "cozy" kitchen?and a hefty maintenance of $1,130/month. Worth it for the charm?
