For less than $1M, an elegant Upper East Side one-bedroom

It’s in a nice location, but the maintenance may be a dealbreaker

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.

Gracious, inoffensive Upper East Side co-ops are basically a dime a dozen, but there are a few things that make this one-bedroom on East 73rd Street stand out. It’s in a good location, for one: between Second and Third avenues, close to one of the Second Avenue subway stops that’s—in theory—due to open this year.

The apartment itself is also quite a charmer, with plenty of nice attributes: There’s a ton of built-in shelving in the living room, a wood-burning fireplace, a good amount of closet space, and a revamped kitchen with a breakfast bar. Lovely decorative touches, like a brick mantle for that fireplace and beamed ceilings, add to the charm.

Now, the drawback: While the price isn’t too bad—$849,000—the maintenance hovers close to $2,000 per month, which is kind of obscene. There’s an open house this Sunday should you want to check it out for yourself.
