Just when you thought spacious and affordable didn’t mesh when it came to Manhattan real estate

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.

When it comes to New York City real estate, one shouldn’t expect to buy much with just $395,000 but every now and then, a listing that might as well be a unicorn springs forth. In this case, it is in the form of a two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in Washington Heights. While the neighborhood has held on to its title as one of the last few remaining affordable neighborhoods in Manhattan, it’s also on the brink of gentrification and is becoming increasingly difficult to luck up with apartments as such.

The railroad-style apartment is not only cheap but stylish, too. The cozy living room features high ceilings, hardwood floors, and newly installed windows that fill the home with natural light. The windowed kitchen is actually quite spacious and offers stainless steel appliances, a mix of lacquer and wood cabinets, and a small breakfast bar.

A set of French doors leads from the living area into the master bedroom where the low-frills design simply includes a sizable closet and views of the building’s private garden. The second bedroom, located next to the apartment’s entrance, would make for a great guest room or home office.

Monthly charges are only asking $701.
