Real Estate Want: Epic culinary corner

By Emmalie Vance  | June 14, 2012 - 12:30PM

This sleek and modern kitchen at 420 East 51st Street is a diamond in the rough of NYC apartment hunting.

The little details of this space remind us of the immaculate designer kitchens in the magazines where even the cabinet hardware and appliance handles match. Among other things, we like the soothing chocolate-on-white palette, the impressively sized prep-and-dine island, and Miele appliances (including three separate ovens with various specialties). A pot filler caps off the functionality score card with a perfect 10.

If you’re a (wannabe) chef with lots of mouths to feed, you will be relieved to know that this postwar co-op apartment has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.  The just-under-$1 million price is tasty indeed....most likely because of the harder-to-swallow $3,558/month maintenance.

Real Estate Want is a weekly column featuring New York City apartment details we're coveting right now.
