A compact—but very charming—one-bedroom condo in Washington Heights has hit the market, asking $565,000. The unit sits within a six-story Arts and Crafts-style building known as the Cragmoor, located at 801 Riverside Drive, part of the Audubon Park Historic District.
Built in 1919, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s (LPC) designation report, it was the first apartment house constructed on the west side of Riverside Drive. It was built by architect George F. Pelham, whom the LPC describes as a “a prolific apartment house builder” who was also behind several units on the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and Inwood.
Aside from its storied past and low price tag, the 631-square-foot apartment has plenty going for it: A relatively spacious living area, six windows, two closets, a French door that leads to the kitchen, a renovated bathroom, and hardwood floors. It also comes with an in-unit washer/dryer and a dishwasher.
It’s located between West 157th and 158th streets, steps from the 1 train’s 157th Street station and Riverside Park.
Taxes for the property come in at $350/month and common charges at $533/month. Wendy N. Arriz and Sophie Harris of Warburg Realty have the listing.
