The Open House Scorecard: So you wanna live near Central Park...

By Sara Alessi  | March 5, 2012 - 12:05PM

If you enjoy trees, grass and fresh air (who doesn't?), take notes on this Open House Scorecard. This week, the Scorecard—which features the top open houses saved by StreetEasy browsers this past week—includes several units that are within walking distance of Central Park.

Located just a block from the park, a loft-like $699,000 one-bedroom co-op on West 75th Street has a renovated kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances, a glass backsplash and stone countertops. The corner bedroom features custom closets, built-in cabinetry, a decorative fireplace and two walls of windows. The bathroom has also been updated, and the lobby in the historic Del Monte building has been restored.

This two-bedroom co-op on East 75th Street is being offered for $1.299 million, and is only a couple of blocks from the park. With “plentiful closets and custom built-ins,” the space also offers a dining area that can be walled off to create a third bedroom. The building also features a fully equipped gym and parking in the building.

A two-bedroom $975,000 co-op on East 69th Street—a slightly longer walk from the park—is a corner unit with a newly renovated kitchen. The apartment boasts enough space for a home office, walk-in closets in each bedroom, and an en suite bath with a double sink in the master bedroom.
