The Open House Scorecard: Top-o'-the-line finishes and appliances make the grade

If you’re looking for a home with top-notch amenities, take notes on this week’s Open House Scorecard — StreetEasy's most frequently saved open houses this past weekend — because you’ll find designer appliances in the kitchens and other details that might just make you want to call one of these places home.

Take, for example, a two-bedroom co-op on West 70th near West End Avenue, on the market for $1.249 million. The building has a 24-hour doorman and a live-in resident manager. The unit itself features an updated kitchen with Miele appliances and a Subzero refrigerator, a separate dining area with a custom built-in Murphy bed and individually controlled HVAC units in every room.

For $1.095 million, you can enjoy stainless steel Viking, Miele and Bosch kitchen appliances in a two-bedroom co-op on Broadway between West 76th and 77th Streets. A wall of western-facing windows offering “panoramic views of the Hudson River and beyond” round out this space, which is housed in a pet-friendly prewar, full-service building with a 24-hour doorman and laundry machines on every floor.

If you’d rather "rough it" without the luxuries (and finishes) of a full service building, consider a 4-bedroom, 3-story brownstone (with a basement) that needs “a total renovation.” Located on 2nd Street in Carroll Gardens between Smith and Hoyt Streets, the $1.199 million unit can be a legal two- or one-family home. And, of course, you can always add the brand-name appliances yourself.

Whether you’re hunting for a full-service building or not, take a look at the rest of the Scorecard below. If you’re ready to commit yourself to finding your next home, don’t go it alone. Let BrickUnderground’s free Agent Referral Service connect you with a helpful agent.
