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.

Apartments around Midtown East asking under $1 million can be hard to come by, which is one of the main reasons why this one-bedroom co-op that has hit the market in Turtle Bay, asking $570,000, is so noteworthy.

But its price tag aside, it is a very pretty apartment. Adding to its charm are its beamed ceilings, roomy living room, hardwood floors. It also comes with walk-in closets (aside from two other regular ones), five windows, and a dishwasher in its kitchen.

Located at 235 East 49th Street, between Second and Third Avenues, the building itself has a common laundry room and a landscaped roof deck. Monthlies are $1,575/month. Keep in mind, though, the co-op doesn’t allow pets. Built in the 1920s, the 12-story structure, designed by Chicago-based architect Henry Ives Cobb, originally served as the home for the New York Theological Seminary, according to CityRealty.

Rowena Dasgupta of Warburg Realty has the listing.
