Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: apartments with lovely fireplaces asking less than $1 million.
The leaves have changed, the air is brisker, and temperatures are on a steady decline, reminding us that fall is well underway in New York City. As we slip into the colder temperatures, it’s not too early to start scoping out apartments with functioning fireplaces. Keeping warm next to a fireplace doesn’t have to break the bank either. Here, we’ve rounded up five apartments with fireplaces of their very own, all priced under $1 million. If you see something you like, better act fast. We’re sure lots of New Yorkers will be looking to keep warm and cozy, just like you.
↑ On West 137th Street in Harlem, a tiny studio packs a lot into its 490 square feet. For one thing, the small space somehow manages to be a condo duplex with one-and-a-half bathrooms, a fair-sized kitchen outfitted with beautiful cherry wood cabinets, and a gas fireplace. All of this comes with an asking price of just $495,000 with an additional $527 in monthly maintenance charges.
↑ This lovely one-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op nestled within a Park Slope brownstone can be yours for $575,000. The sunny apartment is sprinkled with prewar charm that includes crown moldings and a wood-burning fireplace while modern updates have introduced new appliances, custom closets, and a subway-tiled bathroom.
↑ This Upper East Side one-bedroom is on the higher end of things with an asking price of $924,000. That could be due to the fact that the space is a "triple mint triplex/townhouse style" apartment that has undergone a full renovation and now offers an eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances and a new bathroom with a jacuzzi. The wood-burning fireplace is surrounded by a massive Italian marble mantle and the master bedroom boasts a private balcony.
↑ In Astoria, $695,000 buys a 637-square-foot condo with brightly painted walls in tow. The one-bedroom home features a large living room with a gas fireplace, sizable kitchen with built-in wine storage, and a terrace large enough to sit and chill on when the weather is warm. There’s also the option to tack on deeded parking for an additional fee.
↑ Exuding elegance and classical charm, not only does this renovated one-bedroom in Midtown East come equipped with a large wood-burning fireplace, the co-op apartment is being offered for $785,000 with no board approval required. There are high ceilings, lots of sunlight, and a renovated kitchen and bathroom. The downside? Maintenance is a hefty $2,038/month.
