Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick an asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best newly available options around the city. Today's task: $600,000 for a one-bedroom.
The last Price Points column found the best two-bedrooms available for $675,000, so we're going a little smaller and a little cheaper for this roundup: one-bedrooms for $600K. StreetEasy shows the median price for one-bedrooms in Brooklyn and Manhattan to be under $700,000, but there is quite a bit of inventory for one hundred grand cheaper. First up, there's a one-bedroom in Williamsburg offering up "the finest in indoor and outdoor living" with a living space and bedroom that open onto a large private terrace. The condo has marble countertops, newly updated appliances, and an in-unit washer and dryer. The apartment also comes with a deeded parking space in the garage below the elevator-ed building, and buyers have access to a communal gym. Asking price is an even $600,000.
In Yorkville, there is a spacious one-bedroom with a 21-foot-long sunken living room and separate dining area. The bedroom has a whole hallway of closets, and the kitchen has new stainless steel appliances. The building has a laundry room and part-time doorman, and the unit is listed for $599,000.
A 700-square-foot unit in a Brooklyn Heights co-op is on the market for $595,000. The kitchen and bathroom have been recently updated, and the building has a new rooftop deck. The apartment looks a little bland in the photos, but some art would easily solve that problem.
On the Upper West Side, a one-bedroom in a fourth-floor walk-up is asking $599,000. But it's worth it, the brokerbabble ensures, for the apartment's expansive rooftop terrace, which appears to be about equal in size to the apartment's indoor area. The living space comes with a wood-burning fireplace, also a nice and seasonal feature, as well as an updated kitchen and a touch of exposed brick. The bedroom's a bit of a tight squeeze and perhaps not the best for sleepers intolerant to light, but for those who revel in morning sunshine, it just might work.
A lower-level duplex on Kingsland Avenue in Greenpoint is listed for $599,000. Being that it's a lower-level duplex, one half is in the cellar, so the unit doesn't have a lot of light, but it has nearly 700 square feet of space, plus a full bathroom and a powder room. The kitchen has a wine cooler and dishwasher. Evidently, it's a good location for musicians.
On the top floor of Long Island City's brand-spankin' new condo building the Millstone, there is a one-bedroom that's listed for $595,000. It has a private balcony, open kitchen with a breakfast bar, and solid Brazilian teak floors. It also has an in-unit washer/dryer, and the building has a shared rooftop deck.
This FSBO gem is located in a Chelsea brownstone on Ninth Avenue at the corner of West 20th Street. It was renovated in 2009, and the (tiny) open kitchen is separated from the living room by a breakfast bar, providing extra seating and counter space. It has a decorative fireplace, exposed brick, and hardwood floors. Asking price is $599,000.
A one-bedroom apartment in the East Village wants $595,000 for its large windows and location at 13th Street and Third Avenue. The home even has a defined office space, although it's pictured as more of a three-foot by three-and-a-half-foot holding cell/solitary confinement room. Huge perk: the building has a landscaped rooftop and common area amenities like bocce ball and basketball courts.
This Soho co-op is very strange—you enter through a long, curving hallway that ends with the still-basically-in-a-hallway kitchen, and then there's a small living room and sleeping area that could be walled off to make it a one-bedroom. Although that might not be the most efficient use of 500 square feet, there are some things to like about the place, such as the exposed brick. It's asking $599,000.
In Bed-Stuy's The Chocolate Factory, this open loft with a raised sleeping platform is asking $599,000. The large windows, heigh ceiling, and general loft-ness are all highlights, as is the shared amenity of a glass-enclosed gym on the roof deck.
