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.

Located in a six-story walk-up that was built in 1898, this East Village one-bedroom has still managed to hold on to some of the original details of the building including the exposed brick, the stained glass pocket doors, and original moldings.

A walk-up is never an easy sell, but the price—$499,000 sure does make it a little more alluring, especially considering the neighborhood. And the monthly charges are not to bad either at $680 per month.

The co-op recently underwent a renovation leading the chef’s kitchen to be fitted with a Viking stove and wood countertops. The windowed-bathroom now comes with a glass shower and subway tiles. And the apartment overall has high ceilings, plenty of light and comes with a washer & dryer in-unit.

Aside from the walk-up aspect, another drawback here is the narrow bedroom, but if you can get over that, this rustic apartment sure does have a lot of nice features to offer.

An added bonus is the west-facing common garden for residents of the co-op building. The apartment last sold in September 2015 for $485,000, and is now asking just $14,000 more.
