StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Crazy eights (family-sized abodes in the $800s)

Looking for a family-sized NYC apartment in the $800k price bracket? So are lots of folks, judging by this week’s edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted--the 10 sales listings StreetEasy users saved more often than any others this week.

On the Upper West Side, an $820k three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom co-op (pictured) in a non-doorman elevator building on West 93rd Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue can serve as a two-bedroom with the smaller third bedroom functioning as a home office or small bedroom maid’s. Gorgeous prewar details include high, beamed ceilings, moldings and French doors. Central Park is a half-block away, and maintenance is a very reasonable $1,132. But this Edwardian, estate-sale apartment needs to be restored (which may explain why it’s priced so far below $1m).

An $899k two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on Eighth Avenue and Montgomery Place in Park Slope is a three-flight walk-up but an in-unit washer-dryer will save you some legwork. There's a home office, five "flower balconies," an eat-in kitchen, and a live-in super in this pet-friendly building.

Over on Prospect Avenue between Calder Place and Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is going for $849k.  The second-floor walk-up is on the top floor. It’s got a working wood-burning fireplace and TWO deeded parking spaces. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and en-suite bath, and there’s locked storage in the basement. Monthly charges are relatively low at $350 (common charges) and $235 (monthly taxes).
