Space-saving features help the narrow apartment feel larger

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.

This East Village co-op may be narrow, but it certainly is cute—and not terribly priced for a one-bedroom. The apartment is located in a prewar walk-up on East 2nd Street, and makes the most of its slim floorplan by compensating with space-saving features.

A sliding door separates the raised bedroom, which has oversized windows, from the living room area. In that space, there are hardwood floors, an exposed brick wall (which clashes just a bit with the otherwise modern feel), a decorative fireplace, and an inconspicuous guest bed that pulls out from the platform between the living and bedroom. The slender kitchen is has Caesarstone counters, modern cabinets, and a washer/dryer unit.

The listing notes that the unit faces the back of the building, a perk in the sometimes noisy East Village. So location, size, and price are already working in this apartment’s favor—and if all that isn’t enough, maybe the low monthly maintenance of $655 will sweeten the deal.
