Lincoln Square Studio Seeks $849K After Austere Makeunder

New, 32 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.

Less than one year after a fine-but-by-no-means-stylish studio in Lincoln Towers sold for $479,000, it's reemerged—and it's hardly recognizable. The co-op has undergone a transformative minimalist makeunder that saw its galley kitchen gutted and replaced with an austere kitchen with a hidden refrigerator and freezer (and no other appliance or flourish to speak of, but for a very calculated staged loaf of bread [Update: camouflaging an induction cooktop].) Everything in this apartment feels deliberate, down to the light that files in in squares onto its wide-plank bleached maple floors. The renovation also added to the studio ambient core lighting with push button switches and a bathroom with a concrete-finished walk-in shower with Vola finishes. The term less is more holds up here—the apartment's now asking $849,000.
