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.
Chelsea may now be associated with luxury, million-dollar new developments—especially along the High Line—but there are still plenty of prewar buildings in the neighborhood with units for sale at under $1 million. This sleek, minimalist studio that just listed, asking $499,000, is a great example of that.
The 450-square-foot apartment, which the listing describes as a “Parisian oasis,” has one bathroom, two closets (including a walk-in one), nine-foot ceilings, and hardwood floors.
The building has an elevator, a common laundry room, private storage space, and a bike room. It’s located at 253 West 16th Street, between Seventh and Eighth avenues, near the A, C, E, and L trains at 14th Street, and a short walk to Chelsea Market and the High Line.
Maintenance charges are $701/month. Meris Blumstein, Sydney Blumstein, and Harriet Kauffman of the Corcoran Group have the listing.
