The time of year has come when all we do is daydream about having outdoor space. And as evidenced from the photo above, this $1.675 million two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath co-op on the Upper West Side has a two-tiered garden space. Trust us when we say that's a rarity in this concrete jungle.

Located in a brownstone on West 71st Street, between West End and Broadway, the apartment has cozy and quaint prewar touches, like exposed brick walls, decorative fireplaces, a bay window in the master bedroom (that looks onto the garden), and beamed ceilings. But it also has been modernized, with a sleek kitchen equipped with the expected suite of stainless steel appliances, plus Caesarstone countertops and a mosaic glass tile backsplash.

The ground level has a solarium that brings lots more brightness to what's traditionally with brownstones a light-starved space.

There is also a pantry and powder room on the ground level in addition to the living room and kitchen, while the two bedrooms (each with en-suite bathrooms) are on the top floor. It's a funky layout, yes, but a pretty unique and charming one at that.

Note: There's a (rather significant) assessment of $625/month until May 2020 for a Major Capital Project on the building, so you'll need your broker or attorney for due diligence.
