StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Stairmaster edition (multi-levels with multiple perks)

By Sara Alessi  | August 24, 2012 - 8:55AM

No need to hit the gym in the morning -- just hit the stairs in a multi-level apartment. And if you can make a little money from it by renting out a level, or spend some time in your private garden, all the better.

This week, StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listingsStreetEasy users saved more often than any others this week -- shines a spotlight on duplexes and triplexes with extra perks like possible rental income and private outdoor space.

When you’re not climbing the spiral staircase of a $1.45m two-bedroom triplex co-op in Chelsea, you can relax in its private garden. The walk-up is located on West 16th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, and the garden features a built-in gas grill, fridge, sink, custom wood panels, LED lighting and a sound system. Central a/c runs inside does a live-in super.

On 10th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues) in Park Slope, a $1.575m three-bedroom multi-family townhouse is comprised of an owner’s duplex and a single floor rental. If you don’t want a tenant -- or want to pick your own -- the space is delivered vacant. The mechanicals have recently been updated, and there are new windows.

A $510k one-bedroom duplex co-op affords extra exercise, since it’s located on the third and fourth floors of a walk-up. Located on Jane Street -- between Hudson Street and Eighth Avenue -- the unit has new windows. Pied-a-terres are welcome and sublets are allowed after 24 months of ownership. But there’s no laundry in the building.
