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.
At first glance, it’s kind of hard to tell what’s going on in this minuscule Horatio Street studio. Same goes for the second and third glances, but here’s what’s discernable: This slice of a West Village dwelling has undergone one serious makeover since it last sold in 2011 for $350,000. Listing pictures for the apartment, which just hit the market asking $625,000, illuminate a renovation that harkens to Zaha Hadid with its a-symmetrical built-in table and shelving.
The renovation wasn’t just about design; it also brought the apartment a brand new kitchen with floor-to-ceiling cabinets, an artfully concealed refrigerator, and a stainless steel range. The apartment’s sole remaining prewar detail, a functioning wood-burning fireplace, has been flanked in a heat-treated tile. The sleek lines and mute coloring of the kitchen carries through to the bathroom, where a glass stall shower has taken the place of a tub.
The co-op at 86 Horatio Street, between Washington and Greenwich streets, collects $646 in monthly maintenance from the ground-floor co-op. The apartment is on the market with Matthew Pucker and Brian Meier at Corcoran.
