The Open House Scorecard: All in the family
Nine out of 10 apartments in this week's Open House Scorecard (the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their open-house calendars more often than any others this weekend) have 2 or more bedrooms, making them family-size apartments -- a departure from the entry-level, one-bedroom trend we've been seeing in NYC real estate lately.
In Boerum Hill, on Warren and Bond Streets, a roomy 1,800 square foot, $1.25m three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom condo fulfills many parental wish list items. The master bedroom, for instance, has a full en suite bath, there's plenty of closet space throughout to stow away all those toys, and a home office that could be useful if you choose to work from home. There is private storage and deeded indoor parking (just imagine driving to all those soccer games--not to mention the Red Hook Fairway!) in a building with relatively low monthlies (common charges $766, taxes $85) and 12 years left on its tax abatement. There’s an elevator (for those strollers) and a Virtual Doorman.
One borough over, a completely renovated $969k two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op (on West 13th Street and Sixth Avenue) in Greenwich Village features a split-bedroom layout and two designer en suite baths, plus a renovated, windowed kitchen and a custom butcher block table for whipping up those family meals. The post-war apartment has a custom bar space with a wine fridge in the living room/dining area for those adult-time moments, a W/D, through-wall a/c units, southern exposures and is wired for sound.
Also in Greenwich Village a block away, you might consider a two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on the market for $825k. The apartment is located on West 13th between Sixth and Fifth Avenues. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an office area. Plus, the second bedroom, which is located off the living room, is suitable for a nursery or home office.
