Priced at $2.795 million, this three-bedroom co-op in 442 West 23rd Street is too expensive to be notably cheap and too cheap to be notably expensive. It's real pretty, though, so let's all look at it anyway.
The garden duplex last changed hands in 2012 for $1.66 million, and subsequently benefited (not to say that it looked especially bad beforehand, but still) from a renovation in which some "hidden industrial architecture" (i.e. brick) was uncovered, a spiral staircase added, shelving installed, grass planted in the private garden, and more. According to the listing, the owners used reclaimed wood from the Catskills for the flooring and had a Brooklyn craftsperson do some custom millwork. They also installed a shower head that plays music, so that's pretty cool, too.
