Real Estate Want: The perfect private patio

By Emmalie Vance  | June 7, 2012 - 1:14PM

Sip an early morning coffee or a late-night margarita on the expansive private roof-deck of this UES co-op on 78th between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Recently lowered to just under $1 million, this two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom property seems like a steal at this almost-summertime time of year.

The nearly 400-square-foot patio is all yours to entertain a crowd or enjoy some personal downtime in the fresh air. The self-managed space keeps maintenance costs low at only $1,200 a month, but will the lack of an elevator to this fifth floor apartment outweigh the fantastic features? 

Also, since patio access is through the second floor bedroom only, it could be awkward for entertaining. Just sounds like good motivation to run the vacuum and make the bed, if you ask us.
