StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Soaring north of a mil

If you’re willing to spare no expense and can fund a seven-digit purchase, pay special attention to this week’s roundup of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 apartments StreetEasyusers saved more often than any others this week.

Ringing in at $1.399m is a three-bedroom co-op in the Dorset on West 79th between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues that's been the home of a biographer of Leonard Bernstein for three decades. It includes an adjoining studio apartment accessible through the main unit or via its own hallway entrance (au pair, anyone?). There are southern exposures and windows in every room (including all three baths) of the second floor apartment and there are juliet balconies; however, there's no mention of a washer-dryer (a big plus in a family-sized apartment) and it could use renovation. The Italian Renaissance-style building has a part-time doorman.

Also on the UWS on the corner of Riverside Drive and West 81st, a $1.595m two-bedroom co-op features a windowed kitchen with plumbing for a W/D or half bath and a master bedroom with two WICs and a windowed, en suite bath. The living and dining rooms are separated by French doors, and the building has a fitness center, playroom, half-court basketball and a roof terrace. The unit itself may need some work.

On West 16th between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Flatiron, a $1.199m two-bedroom/two bath co-op has a custom cook’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and a breakfast bar. The master bedroom suite features a dressing room and an en suite bath with a soaking tub and a separate stall shower. The price was recently reduced by $100k and the maintenance is quite reasonable at $1,321/month.

If a million-plus is out of your price range, don’t despair. Consider a renovated, pet friendly $450k one-bedroom second-floor walk-up co-op on Sullivan Street between Spring and Broome.

Take a look at (and perhaps drool over) the rest of the Most Wanted below for pads above and below a million.
