Promising “Gramercy Zen,” this cozy two-room studio makes the most of its minimal space, thanks to the lofted sleeping area and (relative) abundance of light.
Accessible by a spiral staircase (charming in theory, possibly difficult in practice), the queen-sized “bedroom” hovers over the long, narrow living space—which itself is big enough for multiple seating areas, a dining table, and an upright piano. The kitchen, too, is unexpectedly well-appointed, offering granite countertops and a substantial breakfast bar, as well as enough storage, to, you know, actually store things. The “foyer-gallery” is decked out with two separate closets, with a third in the living room.
The $589,000 condop comes with all the usual perks and then some. The place includes access to a shared roof deck, a communal laundry room, and various types of storage (bike, regular), as well as a live-in super and an elevator. Like guarantors and co-purchases, pets are allowed, and after a year of ownership, subletting is, too.
