Welcome back to the Six-Digit Club, where 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 tip line.
Location: East Village, Manhattan
This two-bedroom co-op is in a five-story prewar building at 103 East 10th Street, a few short blocks from McSorley’s, Tim Ho Wan, and Veselka (not to mention the myriad institutions along St. Marks Place). Also within a ten-minute walking distance: Tompkins Square Park, the Strand, Astor Wines & Spirits, and Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s near Union Square. The closest subway lines are the 6 at Astor Place and the R and W at 8th Street.
Specs: 2 beds, 1 bath, 1,100 square feet
Prewar touches abound inside the duplex, from the 12-foot ceilings in the living room to exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace. A spiral staircase connects the living room with the lower-level bedroom, and French doors lead to a tiny — but sweet — private patio with an ivy-covered wooden fence, brick tiles, and enough space for a small table and chairs. You’ll also get a dishwasher and some bar seating in the kitchen, a walk-in closet in the upper-level bedroom, and a common laundry room in the building. Monthly fees are hefty, though, at $1,687/month.
