The Open House Scorecard: 3 family-sized apartments for under a million. No, we’re not kidding!
Families on the hunt for brood-sized apartments with six-figure price tags presumably propeled three such specimens to the top of this week’s Open House Scorecard roundup, the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their open-house planners more often than any others.
Among the apartments with 2 or more bedrooms and price tags under $1 million: A sleek two-bedroom, one-bath co-op (pictured) on West 29th (between Eighth and Ninth Avenues) in Chelsea with an asking price of $950k. The building was constructed in 1846, and the floor-through unit was completely renovated and has new central a/c. A mix of old and new affords for exposed brick and beams and two wood-burning fireplaces, as well as a kitchen with top-notch appliances like Miele, Wolf, Sub Zero, and Gaggenau, not to mention a Bosch washer and dryer. It's a third-floor walkup.
In the East Village, you’ll find a tres chic two-bedroom, one-bath co-op on the market for just $530k. The monthly maintenance of $302 is among the best we've seen in Manhattan in quite some time. East Second Street and Second Avenue is a tree-lined block, and soundproof windows help make the apartment even quieter, while extra tall south-facing windows let in natural light. There’s also a W/D. A potential drawback? You’ll have your hands full on the stairs of this third floor walk-up.
Over in Brooklyn, a $765k three-bedroom, two-bath condo in Prospect Heights on Saint John’s Place between Underhill and Washington Avenues. The apartment (which is located in an elevator building) has a W/D, plus there’s a triple wide closet in the foyer to stash away the kids’ toys and clothes. It still has the original ornate tin ceilings and a wall of exposed brick, and the master bedroom -- which faces south -- can fit a king-sized bed and includes a designer en suite bath. The 2, 3, B, and Q trains are close by.
