5 NYC apartments with glorious outdoor space asking less than $1M

These five NYC pads with private outdoor space are a real bang for their buck

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: apartments with private outdoor space asking less than $1 million.

It’s the height of summer, meaning New Yorkers lucky enough to have their own outdoor space are basking in privacy while NYC’s many public parks are packed to the gills. But a great, private outdoor space could be more in reach than it seems. Here, we’ve rounded up five apartments, all with private outdoor space, priced at less than $1 million. These apartments will make you wish that summer never ended.

↑ In Clinton Hill, $695,000 buys a one-bedroom condo with a private rooftop terrace. The apartment also comes with an updated bathroom, laundry room, and 12-foot ceilings. The apartment is still under a J51 abatement, meaning taxes are only $12 for now (although monthlies are a slightly higher $300.) Good news for G train haters: the apartment is just six blocks from the A/C at Clinton-Washington.

↑ The indoor part of this Williamsburg two-bedroom is just about the same size as its backyard, where a concrete patio gives way to a grassy garden. The apartment, off the L and the J (that’s right—this place isn’t totally screwed by the imminent L train shutdown), has two decent-sized bedrooms and two full baths. It just nabbed a spot on this list at $999,000.

↑ This Murray Hill co-op comes with tons of outdoor space in the form of a terrace off of the bedroom and a private roof deck. Including the outdoor living space, the apartment is spread over three floors. The apartment’s first floor features and updated kitchen and a wood-burning fireplace. Not bad for $849,000!

↑ This one-bedroom Astoria condo is designed to a T, but even without its on-trend furnishings there’s a lot to love about this apartment. The condo comes with not one, but two private outdoor spaces—a terrace off of the living area, and another off of the bedroom—as well a newly-renovated, envy-inducing open kitchen with white marble countertops. It’s asking $649,000.

↑ $689,000 buys a Bed-Stuy condo with a small private terrace and access to a shared rooftop. The two-bedroom apartment comes with one-and-a-half bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and a nook for a home office. It also has direct elevator access.
