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.
You’ll need to be a fan of exposed brick to love this East Village apartment—the one-bedroom co-op, located on East 9th Street between First Avenue and Avenue A, is positively covered in the stuff. But if you don’t mind that (prewar charm, right?), the apartment itself is a nifty little space.
Configured as a duplex, the 750-square-foot pad has a kitchen, dining area, and living area on the lower level. The upper level, accessed via a spiral staircase (another possible deal-breaker for some), is where you’ll find the bedroom, bathroom, and a walk-in closet. There’s also a working fireplace, and it’s one of just six apartments in the building.
As for the price: It’s going for $799,000, with maintenance hovering around $1,400/month. (It is a small co-op, after all.) That may seem steep, but the brokerbabble hypes its location on “the best tree-lined block in the East Village”; but is it worth the price? We’ll let you be the judge.
