StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: How high would you go for high ceilings?

Are high ceilings worth a hike? 

In this week’s edition of StreetEasy's Most Wanted--the 10 sales listings saved by apartment shoppers more often than any others on floor-through $750,000 two-bedroom co-op in Brooklyn Heights (on Cranberry Street between Hicks and Henry Streets) boasts 11-foot ceilings.

But there's a caveat: The lofty co-op is on the top floor of a walk-up, which may explain its relatively low price. On the bright side, it's got a shared roof-deck with skyline views, and the recently renovated space has a built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcase and working fireplace in the living room.

If you’ve got $2.395 million to spend and a thing for 11 foot ceilings, consider the three-bedroom Flatiron loft on East 22nd Street between Broadway and Park Avenue South. The 2,300-square-foot corner apartment has a washer/dryer, 13 windows and a shared roof garden.

For about half the price, you might want to check out an updated $1.19 million two-bedroom co-op on Madison Avenue, between 95th and 96th streets.The sunny living room has 10-foot ceilings and oversized windows. The rooms face west and offer “sky views over neighboring rooftops.” En suite baths are attached to both bedrooms.
