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.

Part of a landmarked East Village building designed by the same architect who designed Central Park, this airy and light-filled co-op is now on the market for $879,000.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment underwent a renovation in 2016, but has still held on to some of its original details including the exposed red brick walls, the pressed tin ceilings, and the large windows spread out throughout the apartment.

The renovation brought in many modern additions too; the kitchen was fitted with several stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) and a ceramic farm sink, with a window above it that overlooks the building’s courtyard.

The co-op’s only bedroom can fit a king size bed and features a closet with automated lighting. The bathroom was also redone during the renovation, and features a wooden medicine cabinet, a pedestal sink, and a tub with a sliding glass shower door. The apartment comes with a washer/dryer in-unit as well.

This apartment is one of 13 units in a four-story building on East 12th Street, that was designed by Calvert Vaux in the late 19th Century. The High Victorian Gothic-style building served as a shelter for women who were rescued from abusive homes, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The building was converted into a co-op in 1982, and was declared a New York City landmark in 2007.
