‘Loft-like’ Upper East Side duplex with huge windows asks $755K

New, 7 comments

The co-op apartment boasts high ceilings, a fire place, and a pretty swanky kitchen

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 sunny one-bedroom duplex has all (or at least, some of) the charm of downtown loft living, but with the tony convenience of the Upper East Side.

Listed at $755,000 — a relative bargain! — the co-op apartment, repped by Francine Crocker for Corcoran, boasts soaring ceilings, a wall of 12-foot windows, and a wood-burning fireplace with a “custom antique walnut mantle,” and a charming spiral staircase.

The open living/dining area occupy the bulk of the first floor. While the slick, bright space has plenty going for it, including a very large closet with made-to-order doors, the real highlight of the level is the tricked-out kitchen. Among its many perks: custom cabinets; a full slate of brand-new, brandname appliances; and a dark copper “farm house” sink.

The upstairs loft bedroom looks down over the living room — a pro or a con, depending on your privacy needs — while the rest of the second floor houses a discreet office area that “easily disappears when not in use” and a fully renovated bathroom (not pictured) with an oversized closet (also not pictured). Monthly maintenance isn’t trivial at $1,582, but the pet-friendly building does come equipped with laundry and an elevator.
