Original details give this railroad apartment its character

235 West 108th Street dining room

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 layout of this cheerful Upper West Side two-bedroom is admittedly a little strange—it’s your standard long, thin railroad apartment— but the individual rooms in this pre-war co-op are truly lovely, with plenty of original details.

Listed at $820,000, the place boasts a large living room all the way in back, a separate dining room, and a warm kitchen with stainless appliances and maple cabinets. Both the living and dining rooms have custom built-in shelving and striking original molding, adding some charm. On the downside, the two bedrooms do share a wall, but on the upside, both come equipped with “generous” closet space and floor-to-ceiling shelves. And, the listing points out, the living room could easily be converted into a third bedroom, if you’re willing to sacrifice having, you know, a living room.

Monthly fees are $1,425, but the building has brand new washers and dryers, assorted storage, and a live-in super. Like pied-à-terres and sublets, pets are allowed.
