Did you guess the correct asking price?

This week’s Pricespotter apartment, a chic two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, is located in a former piano factory on West 46th Street near 10th Avenue—a fact that one of our commenters gleaned—and is asking $1.495 million. The commenter who came closest to that price tag without going over is notbuying, who guessed $1.45 million; Donnie Moder also came close, with $1.499 million.

Some of the vintage details from the building’s 19th-century origins time can still be found in this particular unit—it has exposed brick, wide-plank wood flooring, and original wooden ceiling beams.

But it’s also benefited from a recent renovation, which brought in stainless steel appliances, LED lights, and new heating and A/C units. A foyer leads into the living room and the kitchen beyond that, both of which come with plenty of closet space. The two bedrooms are a nice size, and the bathrooms are clean and new.

As some commenters noted, this is a ground-floor unit, which could be a drawback; but on the plus side, it’s close to the building’s shared laundry room and courtyard.

The apartment is listed with Compass’s Bobby Larrea; let’s look at the floorplan one more time:
