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 images of this apartment might not readily give it away, but there's a strong focus on the early 20th century in this two-bedroom abode on the Upper East Side. The apartment includes kitchen cabinets with mirrored glass from circa 1900, and custom made seven-foot doors, also from the same time. The floorplan reveals a relatively narrow and long setup, but the 10 windows spread out throughout the apartment lend it a light-filled and spacious feeling. Other standout features in this unit include Brazilian soapstone countertops in the kitchen, hardwood floors throughout and a latch-door dumbwaiter that's been converted into a pantry. Priced at $865,000, the apartment is located on the top floor of a maisonette from the early 1900s, and occupies the entire floor. It certainly helps that it's within walking distance of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in turn Museum Mile.
