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.

Price: $615,000
Location: Upper West Side

This one-bedroom co-op, located at 332 West 101st Street, sits on the third floor of a five-story walk-up. Located near Riverside Park, the historic 1901 Beaux Arts building was designed by George F. Pelham, the architect behind many Upper West Side apartment buildings including the neighboring 290 Riverside Drive and Columbia University’s Butler Hall. The apartment is a five-minute walk from the 1 train at 103rd Street, a 12-minute walk from Central Park. It is close to the restaurants and cafés along Broadway as well as the cluster of big chain stores (e.g. Whole Foods, Home Goods, and Michaels) on Columbus Avenue between 97th and 100th streets.

Specs: 1 bed, 1 bath

Details inside the unit harken back to the building’s prewar history: There’s a decorative fireplace with a mantle, high ceilings, crown and base moldings, floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves, and hardwood floors. But there are also modern details like wood-and-glass cabinets and stainless steel appliances in the renovated kitchen, plus marble floors and subway tiles in the bathroom. The building has a washer/dryer and storage space in the basement. The maintenance charges are hefty at $1,106 a month.
