BrickPicks: Pre-war Murray Hill 2-bed, good schools, $825k

Share this Article

This is certainly not the home for the family who likes to cook together. More than one person in this tiny kitchen (kitchenette, technically) could conceivably lead to mishaps involving butcher knives and scalding water. But for the couple looking for a reasonably priced pre-war two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment that comes with good schools (P.S. 116 and M.S. 104), this might be the answer.  Unit 10Q at 220 Madison Avenue has triple exposures, a newly renovated kitchen, high beamed ceilings, and split bedrooms. The building allows pets and sports a concierge, full-time doorman, on-site garage and roof deck. Listed eight days ago at $825,000, the asking price is slightly less than the $830,000 it sold for in August of 2006, and approximately 60% of similarly sized units in the area are more expensive.
