Location: Tudor City, Manhattan
Tudor City, the historic 1920s enclave in Midtown East, has been called “a city within a city” for its somewhat secluded location on a hill and its two landscaped parks. This apartment at 333 East 41st Street is on the top floor of Prospect Hill, a six-story brick co-op built in 1926. Though the elevator building slightly predates its neighbors, which are mostly Tudor Revival-style apartment high-rises, it is still included in the historic district. It sits right next to one of said landscaped parks on a one-way street that has no through-traffic — and ends at an elevated lookout with benches facing the East River. Grand Central is only a ten-minute walk away.
Specs: 1 bed, 1 bath, 650 square feet
This unit has 10.5-foot ceilings and huge, 7.5-foot casement windows overlooking the park. The asking price is on the higher end for one-bedroom co-ops in the area, likely because it comes with recent renovations, like hand-cut, hand-painted tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, new appliances (including a Bertazzoni range), a rain shower, and built-in shelves. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, bar seating in the kitchen, and a breakfast nook next to more casement windows. The building is pet-friendly on a case-by-case basis and has a basement laundry room. Monthly dues are $1,700. See a video tour here.
