The Open House Scorecard: Pads with washer/dryer bragging rights

Tired of lugging your laundry down the hall, into and out of elevators or up and down stairs? (Who isn't?!) Then pay extra special attention to this week’s Open House Scorecard (the 10 open houses saved to users’ open house planners more often than any others last weekend) because many feature a private washer/dryer.

Feeling a tad survivalist? A two-bedroom $729,000 condo on 12th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Park Slope is all about independence. It’s got a private washer/dryer, a separate street-level entry and overlooks a private garden. The duplex even has an individual heating and hot water system. A low common charge of $154.26 rounds out the appeal of this space.

In the Flatiron district, a two-bedroom co-op with a washer and dryer, as well as a dishwasher, is being offered for $1.25 million. Located on East 20th Street between Broadway and Park Avenue South in a building that was converted from a quilt factory in the 1980s, the 1,530-square-foot apartment features 10-foot ceilings and walk-in closets. One downside: It's been 18 years since the kitchen and bathrooms were renovated.

It'll take a two-flight climb to get to the two-bedroom condo on West 82nd between Columbus and Central Park West selling for $949,000, which also offers an “all important private washer/dryer.” Again, if you’re in the market for privacy, this apartment leads to a private roof terrace. It also has through-the-wall a/c in every room. Plus, the kitchen and bathroom have been renovated, and new windows installed.
