Which Gramercy one-bedroom overlooking Stuyvesant Park would you buy?

New, 12 comments

Would you rather pay more or live on the ground floor?

Imagine you have just under $2 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two one-bedrooms in the same Gramercy building. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: You shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

↓ Located on the second floor of a five-story co-op building at the corner of Rutherford Place and East 17th Street, this one-bedroom (#2F) apartment offers up views of Stuyvesant Park and features large casement windows that amplify the natural light.

The apartment features a ton of swanky appliances and finishes; in the kitchen there are Carrara quartz countertops, a Smeg oven, a Miele hood, and a Fisher-Paykel dishwasher. The kitchen and the bathroom both come with windows, which is always a plus, and there’s a good amount of storage space in the unit as well. All of that, is asking $1.695 million.

↓ One floor below, this one-bedroom co-op (#1F) has many of the key features of the unit above, including the large windows, park views, and the windowed kitchen and bathroom. It might be a ground floor unit, but at $895,000, it’s asking significantly less than the apartment above.

Aside from that, this apartment features over nine-foot tall ceilings, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen as well as marble backsplashes, and decorative moldings. It might be bit more old-fashioned compared to the unit above, but it is just as charming.
