The bright and cozy co-op has plenty of prewar charm


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.

A co-op within an Upper East Side townhouse on East 78th Street has made its way to the market with an asking price of $595,000. The space is heavy on charming details that hark back to the building’s prewar beginnings.

The floorplan here is a simple one that’s pretty straightforward. The sun-filled sunny living/dining room area is complete with exposed brick walls, a wood-burning fireplace with a carved wood mantel, a lovely arched cut-out with bookshelves, and three large windows that overlook 78th Street. The open kitchen features white cabinets and matching appliances, along with a bright blue counter and breakfast bar that give a refreshing pop of color.

The bedroom is simple in its design with merely high ceilings, two large closets, and a good bit of natural light as its highlights. Its drawback might be the fact that there’s only one window here and it appears to give view to a dull brick wall.

Per the listing description, the bathroom needs some “minor upgrades” but does feature original subway tiling. Monthly maintenance is set at $680.
