What it lacks in space, it makes up for in charm

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.

At 620 square feet, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom Upper West Side co-op is on the smaller side, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in charm.

Per the listing, the living room features 12-foot ceilings, a genuinely massive wood-burning fireplace, original molding, and “almost floor-to-ceiling” windows that lead out to a “lovely” Juliet balcony, decorated with hand-pained Moroccan floor tiles. Too bad there isn’t room for much else. The bedroom, the listing notes, is big enough for a king bed and nightstands, while the multi-purpose loft could serve as an office, guest room, den, or some combination thereof.

The kitchen is what one might describe as cozy, but all the essentials are there including a dishwasher, oak countertops, and “abundant cabinet space.” The highlight, though, is the patterned gray-and-yellow tile flooring.

The apartment is currently listed for $650,000 and is located in a “well-maintained” building with wide staircases and “intricate-woodworks.” Of course, such maintenance doesn’t come cheap: monthly fees for the place are a not-insignificant $1,522, though that does include one large storage cage, central laundry, and bike storage. Per the listing, the “liberal board” will consider co-purchasers, parents buying for working children, guarantors, and dogs.
