If you’re the type that likes to roll out of bed in the morning and into your office, you're in good company apparently. This week, the Open House Scorecard--the 10 open houses saved most to the calendars of StreetEasy.com users--features a number of Manhattan and Brooklyn apartments with home-office space.
A $1.35 million three-bedroom co-op on West End Avenue is an ideal space to “live/work” with its in-home office, loft-like dining area and custom closets. Located between 82nd and 83rd streets, the UWS unit has a sound system, washer-dryer, live-in super and full-time doorman. But the doorman is closer to your home than you might expect--this first floor apartment has lobby and street access.
Over in Greenwich Village--on the corner of East 10th Street and University Place--a recently gut renovated $1.75m two-bedroom co-op offers a separate office area. The oversized eat-in kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of storage. Details include acres of exposed brick and an in-unit washer-dryer.
If you prefer to work and sleep in Brooklyn, you also have options. The first, a two-bedroom condo in Williamsburg on Roebling Street--situated between North 7th and 8th Street--is going for $750k. The duplex penthouse is a walk-up with a video intercom system and has not only a home office, but also an upper mezzanine making it possible for the space to be converted into a three-bedroom home. It also features two balconies, an oddly claustrophobic private roof terrace, washer-dryer and central air. There are low common charges ($324) and a 421A tax abatement in place.
Park Slope offers another alternative: a $699k two-bedroom plus-home-office co-op in an elevator building. The home, on the corner of Garfield Place and 7th Avenue, has a dozen south-facing windows, 10-foot ceilings, built-ins, and new laundry facilities in the building. Downsides: Just one bathroom and no in-unit washer-dryer in this otherwise family-perfect unit.
