Wait until you see this

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.

For being such a small space, there’s a lot going on in this Chelsea studio. It’s located in a building that dates back to 1899, but the apartment itself has gotten a sleek, modern redo: there are bookshelves built into the exposed brick in the living room, a custom Murphy bed, and a revamped kitchen that has a not-too-terrible amount of storage space.

We do, however, need to talk about the bathroom: it’s … creative, and perhaps best for someone who either never has people over, or is something of an exhibitionist. The shower/tub stall (because somehow, there’s a bathtub) is on a raised platform in the middle of the space, while the toilet is adjacent and slightly sunken. To offer the faintest whiff of privacy, perhaps? We’re honestly not sure.

Also, the entrance to the apartment is next to the toilet, because nothing says “welcome to my home!” like … a toilet.

So, yeah, that’s a bit odd. There are some perks here: there’s plenty of storage space (including some that’s built into the floor), and it’s in a great location, on 21st Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. At $469,000, it’s firmly in the six-digit club. And hey, to be fair, that shower is really nice.

But truly, this is an unusual space—sound off with your thoughts in the comments, because we know you’re gonna have them.
