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.
Prolific prewar architect Emery Roth is remembered for his gracious layouts and thoughtful designs, and often the apartments created by Roth command top-dollar to this day. But this one-bedroom co-op on East 49th Street between Lexington and Third avenues, in a Roth-designed building, is on the market for $685,000.
The co-op is canvassed in prewar details like crown moldings and beamed ceilings, built-in shelving in the kitchen and living room, and a generous mantle surrounding a decorative fireplace. The apartment comes with both a dishwasher and a washer/dryer, and features windows in every room—a luxury that transcends the ages. The co-op’s monthly maintenance runs $1,408, but that helps pay for things like upkeep of the building’s elevator.
