A warm and cozy apartment in an unassuming Gramercy co-op is now on the market for $925,000. Measuring 650 square feet, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment was once home to late writer David Rakoff. He sold the apartment in 2011 for $725,000.
The apartment, which the New York Post first reported, on opens up into the spacious living room, which features large windows, a wood-burning fireplace, and a wall of built-in bookshelves. The bedroom is separated from the living room by a sliding barn door, and the room itself comes with floor-to-ceiling closets along one wall.
The kitchen here may be a bit on the smaller side, but at least it has a dishwasher, and some other nice stainless steel appliances, along with black slate countertops, and storage space that stretches to the ceiling.
The unit’s only bathroom is located next to the kitchen and comes fitted with a marble tile mosaic, and a large walk-in shower. Overall, the apartment features 12-foot-tall ceilings, which make it seem a lot more spacious. Monthlies here run just under $800, which is an added bonus.
