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.
The Upper East Side may be home to a slew of pricey apartments, but there are still a few deals to be found. For instance, a two-bedroom co-op within a building on the corner of East 63rd Street and Second Avenue is asking a relatively low $496,000. There is a catch, but we’ll get to that later.
According to the listing description, the apartment is a corner unit that’s located on the sixth floor of a 16-story building. Its location allows for both southern and western exposures and the large windows fill each room with natural light. Dark hardwood floors run throughout the 975-square-foot space and there is a windowed kitchen that features a breakfast bar, white cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.
The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet while the second bedroom is more suitable for a children’s room or perhaps a home office. There are about four other closets throughout the apartment that provide a decent amount of storage space.
Now here’s the drawback: for reasons beyond comprehension, monthly maintenance is going for a whopping $4,064 a month. While the building is full-service, with amenities that include a full-time doorman, roof deck, laundry room, and bike storage, we can’t say that it justifies the maintenance fee.
