The Open House Scorecard: Ready-to-wear kitchen edition

Today’s Open House Scorecard--the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their open-house planners more often than any others this weekend--features several apartments with move-in-condition kitchens

The spruced up kitchen in a $625k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on Fifth Avenue and First Street in Park Slope features stainless steel appliances, a mosaic glass backsplash and granite counters, in addition to a breakfast bar. Plus, it opens to the living and dining room, which has a wood-burning fireplace and exposed brick. The apartment also has its own washer-dryer. Another perk? The building has no underlying mortgage, keeping the maintenance at an affordable $696/month. Dogs are only permitted on approval.

You’ll find top-of-the line appliances (like a SubZero fridge, DCS fully-vented oven/stovetop and a Bosch dishwasher) in the renovated kitchen inside this $995k two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on West 92nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue on the Upper West Side. An island, slate counters and lots of cabinet space round out the kitchen, which is clearly the star of this second-floor two-bedroom apartment in a doorman building.

Back in Brooklyn,  check out the  nicely renovated eat-in kitchen in a $710k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on Prospect Park West and Fifth Street. The kitchen in this 4th floor walk-up apartment can fit a table large enough to seat eight. The living room faces the park and offers garden and treetop views. Good news for parents -- it’s zoned for PS 321 William Penn, one of the most popular elementary schools in the neighborhood.

Over on West 72nd Street and Columbus Avenue, a two-bedroom, two-bath prewar condo on the market for $1.295m also has a renovated kitchen. It’s equipped with stainless steel, top-notch appliances, granite countertops and solid wood cabinets. The living room has two skylights to let in natural light, there's also a 322-square-foot private terrace The building itself offers a live-in super and a communal laundry room, the combined common charges/property tax of $1130 is very low for a two-bedroom in the neighborhood.

A new-to-market, second floor $750k three-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in Park Slope on Carroll Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenues) offers a recently renovated kitchen with granite counters and custom cabinetry, with hardwood pine floors throughout. Other original details include exposed brick and tin ceilings. The eight-unit building also offers private storage and common laundry, and monthly maintenance is just $550.
