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: one-bedroom apartments in Manhattan for sale for under $500,000.
↑ In Greenwich Village, a petite split-level co-op with a bedroom overlooking the living area—that’s right, no windows to the outside—is on the market for $485,000. The apartment has a Juliet balcony that overlooks Thompson Street, a small kitchen with a two-burner stove, and a refinished bathroom. Laundry isn’t in-unit but facilities are available on every floor. Maintenance runs $946/month. Sorry, NYU students: no undergrads are being considered for this co-op. [StreetEasy]
↑ $469,000 buys a spacious Hudson Heights co-op with a brand new kitchen and updated bathroom. The huge living area lets onto a sizable balcony, and the bedroom is equally spacious and can fit a California King-sized bed, as the listing points out. Both the kitchen and the bathroom have recently been updated; the kitchen has all new stainless steel Samsung appliances, including a dishwasher, and the bathroom has classic tiling with a glass shower enclosure. Maintenance runs $839/month. [StreetEasy]
↑ This 725-square-foot Sutton Place co-op/mini-Versailles wannabe is currently laid out as a studio but is being marketed as a one-bedroom. At that, what’s currently designated as the dinning nook can be enclosed to create a small bedroom. The 14th-floor apartment appears to get good sunlight (those mirrors definitely help), has a buttoned-up kitchen, and an oppulent white and gold bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower. The apartment is on the market for $440,000, with a monthly maintenance fee of $1,342. [StreetEasy]
↑ A funky-yet-functional Hell’s Kitchen one-bedroom is on the market for $490,000, down from $510,000. The south-facing one-bedroom comes with an open kitchen with older appliances, as well as a bathroom with a charming clawfoot tub. Laundry is on-site, and the listing says building residents have access to a “communal back garden” that looks more like an alley with pavers. Maintenance on this co-op runs $700/month. [StreetEasy]
↑ A 570-square-foot one-bedroom in an elevator Harlem building is looking for $480,000. The apartment comes with oak flooring, Caeserstone kitchen countertops, and a Duravit soaking tub in the bathroom. The apartment doesn’t have the most glamorous view—the living room appears to look onto a ventilation shaft—but the apartment building sits directly across the street from Jackie Robinson Park. The condo’s common charges run $361, while monthly taxes are $261. [StreetEasy]
