Real Estate Want: One gorgeous galley

By Emmalie Vance | August 30, 2012 - 1:24PM 

Galley kitchens can be small, dark, and not especially handsome (unless you employ some of our tricks), but the spectacularly spacious scene in this $1 million Yorkville 2-bed/2-bath co-op shatters that stereotype.

The 9-foot deep kitchen feels open and welcoming with wood floors, a generously sized window, and light quartz countertops that balance out the darker glass tile backsplash and red lower cabinets.

We can imagine flowing around the space Fantasia-style from the fridge to the sink  to the oven, and then administering finishing touches on that long stretch of counter, grabbing a bottle of wine from the lower wine fridge and sweeping out to greet our guests.

Our only critique: that mismatched dishwasher sticks out like a sore thumb!
