Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city. Today, we’re making this even harder by focusing on one neighborhood, and thus: one-bedrooms in the East Village asking $800,000 or less.
↑ There’s plenty to like about this one-bedroom on East 7th Street, except maybe its location; it’s between Avenues C and D, so relatively far from the nearest subway stop. (Hey, you’ll get your steps in?) But it’s otherwise a charming place, with a banquette that functions as storage space in the open living area, a kitchen with plenty of cabinets, and a balcony. Plus, it overlooks the delightful Green Oasis Garden. It’s asking $775,000. [Floorplan]
↑ On the less expensive end of the spectrum, there’s this one-bedroom on East 12th Street between Second and Third Avenues, asking $560,000. It’s gotten some modern upgrades—the kitchen looks relatively new, and there’s no old claw-foot tub in the bathroom—and has a decent amount of space for a one-bedroom. (We have to guess, though; no floorplan accompanies the listing.)
↑ Back in Alphabet City, a surprisingly bright railroad-style one-bedroom on East 6th Street is going for $699,000. There are some nice decorative details in this apartment, including a large mantle in the living area, and French doors separating the dining space from the bedroom. On the downside, the sole bathroom can only be accessed through the bedroom. [Floorplan]
↑ Another railroad one-bedroom, this one close to Cooper Union on East 5th Street, is asking $795,000. It’s got plenty of character—there’s a lot of exposed brick, along with a decorative fireplace (though not quite as over-the-top as the previous listing). But it’s functional and cute, with a nice kitchen and a pretty unbeatable location. [Floorplan]
↑ And last but not least is the priciest unit, a one-bedroom condo on East 11th Street asking exactly $800,000. On the plus side, it’s big—1,000-square-feet—with perks like private elevator access, new appliances (including a washer/dryer), and a Juliet balcony off of the living room. On the downside, it’s expensive, with monthlies clocking in at close to $2,000. [Floorplan]
