East Village one-bedroom is small on space but big on style

The place is small but the price and location can’t be beat

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.

How does an East Village apartment that’s been featured on Apartment Therapy, Houzz, and Domino end up asking just $499,000? It could be because the listing touts it as a one-bedroom, despite the floorplan painting a seemingly different picture.

In any case, chic apartment, which appears to be a studio with a sleeping alcove (which the brokerbabble calls "an organizer's dream," with built-in storage), has been renovated but maintains much of its pre-war appeal. Ceiling heights reach 9.5 feet, while white-painted brick walls line the living and dining room, and the common space is highlighted by a decorative fireplace. The kitchen boasts custom cabinets and fancy appliances as well as a washer/dryer combo. The modern bathroom comes with a glass-encased shower, marble counters, a large closet, and more built-ins.

So really, it's not too shabby—even with monthly maintenance, which is an extra $540 a month.
