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.
Prewar apartments are wonderful for their aesthetic attention to detail, but also for the ample closet space they often come with. Both of those traits are in sufficient supply in a new-to-market one-bedroom in Sutton Place. The co-op at 400 East 59th Street doesn’t list its square footage, but it appears to be relatively roomy with a proper foyer, an 18-foot by 14-foot living and dining room, and bedroom that can fit a king sized bed and then some.
On top of that, the apartment comes with five closets in all including a large walk-in off the foyer, another walk-in in the living room, and two deep closets in the bedroom. It’s almost as if the apartment was not built with the classic New York shoes-in-the-oven storage hack in mind.
And that’s probably for the best: If there’s one major space drawback to this co-op it’s the petite kitchen that features a meager amount of countertop space, but does eke in a dishwasher and a small table for two. Both the kitchen and bathroom are windowed, though it appears the windows look out onto a lightwell.
The apartment features lovely herringbone wood floors in the foyer and living room, and a centerpiece fireplace (that sadly no longer appears to function, but still looks good.) The location of this building across from the access ramp to the Queensboro Bridge may be a drawback to some, but the apartment itself is on the back side of the building and away from the traffic hubbub.
It’s on the market with Nancy Benedict and Sarah Bond at Corcoran for $515,000, and comes with a $1,466 monthly maintenance charge.
