StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Roaring 20s

By Sara Alessi  | April 19, 2013 - 9:16AM

If you're looking to live in the classic chic Gramercy Park neighborhood, the funky/artsy chic Chelsea area, or the convenient-if-slightly-bland Kips Bay neighborhood, grab a pencil and paper and take notes, because this week’s Most Wanted (the 10 sales listings that were saved more often than any others by those surfing StreetEasy this week) features several pretty cool pads in the East and West 20s.

A full-floor $1.899m two-bedroom, two-bath co-op on West 20th between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in Chelsea (pictured) features a key-locked elevator that opens directly into the apartment. If you’re a sucker for prewar, you’ll appreciate the wood-burning fireplace, which is surrounded by exposed brick walls. The apartment also has a recently renovated chef’s kitchen with a Wolf stove that vents to the outside, a Miele dishwasher, wine refrigerators and a full-sized Samsung W/D that also vents to the outside. 

Also in Chelsea, but over on West 29th and Ninth Avenue, is a $995k two-bedroom, two-bathroom prewar co-op with a sleeping loft. The duplex is located on the second floor of a townhouse, and the sleeping loft (which makes up one bedroom) has 8’ ceilings. The living room and master bedrooms face the sunny south, and there’s a wood-burning fireplace for chilly nights or days when the sun’s not shining. There’s also central heat and a/c, and maintenance rings in at $1,269.

On East 22nd Street and Third Avenue in Gramercy Park, there’s a top-floor prewar two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft condo going for $1.625m that also boasts a private outdoor terrace. Characteristic of a loft, the duplex has 10’ high ceilings. Other details include original pinewood columns, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and pedestal sinks in the bathrooms. Modern additions include stainless steel and GE Profile appliances in the kitchen and central heating and cooling units in each room. The master bedroom has custom closets.

Further north, on East 29th between Second and Third Avenues in Kips Bay is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condop on the market for $500k. No board interview is required, and subletting is allowed from day one. Plus, the building allows co-purchasing, pied-a-terres and parents buying for their children. There's also a live-in super and an updated laundry room with card-operated machines.
