StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: A move-in ready co-op with no board approval necessary (and other renovated co-ops over a million)

If you like the idea of a co-op but could do without the hassle of passing a board interview, put on your reading glasses and take a look at this edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings folks browsing StreetEasy saved more often than any others this week -- because it features one such co-op, as well as a number of other swanky units priced above a million bucks. 

If you think avoiding a board interview is worth $1.55m, you might be interested in a two-bedroom co-op on West 70th between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. The sponsor unit has been rather awesomely gut renovated. It’s complete with a gas fireplace, W/D and through wall heat and air units,  home office as well as a walk-in closet. The location is also a perk if you like the outdoors — it’s just two buildings off Central Park. It's on the second floor though and for some, the price might be steep for a non-doorman building.

If you’re not averse to a board interview, there’s also a gut renovated two-bedroom  2 1/2 bath co-op on the market for $1.995m in West Village. Located on West Houston between Bedford and Varick Streets, the top floor loft has a vented Miele W/D and two skylights to let in lots of natural light. But there’s no doorman and West Houston is not exactly a quiet neighborhood street. Maintenance is $2,716.

Also in the West Village at the apex of the Sheridan Square viewing garden on Barrow and Grove Streets, is a move-in ready $1.149m two-bedroom 1 bath co-op. The apartment has built-in storage throughout, and is lit by southern exposures and oversized windows. The windowed, custom kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and the corner master bedroom is also windowed. The shared roof deck is equipped with WiFi. 

For more apartments that may or may not require board approval, with prices hovering above and below a million, take a look at the remainder of the Most Wanted below.
