The chef’s kitchen sports custom cabinetry and two windows that bring in lots of light

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.

Brokerbabble calls this Chelsea abode the “perfect prewar two-bedroom,” which is a bold claim but we can admit it’s unique. The co-op merges period details with modern upgrades and it’s $995,000 asking price comes in just under a million bucks, so that should count for something.

Upon entering the West 21st Street apartment, a gallery leads past the two bedrooms, what appears to be a walk-in closet, and the full bathroom, to the open living room. This area features exposed brick walls, high ceilings, crown molding, wood-framed windows, and a decorative fireplace. The open eat-in kitchen kitchen provides more exposed brick, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and two windows that invite natural light in.

The two bedrooms are the same size (though ther aren’t very large) and we have to admit that the window view isn’t good (you’ll be staring at a wall). On the other hand, the bathroom details are charming and include a tin ceiling along with more contemporary fixtures.

Monthly maintenance is $1,021.
