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.

Upon first glance, it might be easy to mistake this Upper East Side apartment for a million dollar home. The makings of a ridiculously expensive apartment seem to be in place— extravagant (albeit, dated) decor and location, of course. However, this one-bedroom abode comes in just under seven figures with an asking price of $950,000.

The apartment boasts the distinguished honor of residing within a white-glove prewar building designed by Rosario Candela. The first thing that greets you upon entering is the vibrant red-painted gallery that’s been decorated with Japanese artwork. We’re guessing that the lavish furniture isn’t included but there are several nice details in place that include French doors, elaborate molding, herringbone floors, and south-facing windows.

The windowed eat-in kitchen has a rather, umm...interesting design that requires a liking of leopard print floors, gold-colored ceilings, and ornate wall paintings. However, if you look past all of that, the good thing is that it has been brought up to modern speed and features new stainless steel appliances along with marble counters.

The bedroom is less garish than the rest of the apartment but still eye-catching, with salmon pink walls and a decorative fireplace. There is a spacious walk-in closet on hand, along with two smaller closets and a second walk-in located elsewhere in the apartment.

Maintenance is set at $1,928 per month.
