Who needs a kitchen when you’ve got room service?

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.

If you’ve ever wanted to pull an Eloise and live in a hotel (but not at Plaza prices), this appealing little one-bedroom Park Avenue co-op may just be your chance. Listed at a (surprisingly reasonable) $595,000, the pre-war co-op is brimming with original details, from the herringbone hardwood floors and to the beamed ceilings and crown molding. The kitchen appears to be tiny—it has a two-burner range and seems roughly the size of the closets—but it is all very shiny, and though the bathroom doesn’t have a tub, it comes with a rather sizable shower.

None of that matters, though, because the real selling point here is the parade of amenities, including maid service five times a week. Moreover, celebrity chef Michael White is opening his latest restaurant, Vaucluse, in the building, which will offer room service to all residents. (It also comes with the usual roaster of less-remarkable perks: doorman, concierge, fitness center, fancy lobby.) All that comes at a price, though—maintenance is a startling $3,490/month.

Pied-a-terres and foreign buyers are welcome, and while corporate ownership is allowed, dogs are not.
