The sleeping alcove is barely large enough for a full-sized bed

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.

A teeny-tiny Yorkville studio fit for a true minimalist—or for use as a pied-a-terre—is on the market for an incomparable $335,000. For as miniature as the apartment is, it comes with a good amount of storage including three closets plus a walk-in. The living area also comes with elegant yet functional built-in shelving. As for other amenities, the kitchenette has been recently updated to include a stainless steel stove and a below-counter refrigerator.

The apartment’s floorplan indicates a sleeping nook that’s barely large enough for a full-sized bed. (It appears that the current owner has opted for a pull-out sofa for their sleeping accomodations.) Although small, the studio packs a punch with its prewar details; intricate molding and inlaid floors lend a dignified vibe to the space on East 79th Street between Second and Third avenues.

Maintenance runs a not-insignificant $1,284/month, and the listing indicates a $170 monthly charge through 2018 tied to exterior maintenance.
