A family-sized condo in Manhattan for under $1 million?

If you’re still entertaining the fantasy of raising a family in a grand prewar building for under a million dollars (!) in Manhattan (!!), then take a gander at this 1400-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath condo asking $930,000 at 779 Riverside Drive in Washington Heights.

The open kitchen-living room is bright and inviting 

The open kitchen has a breakfast bar that could double as a prep station, and overlooks a living area that’s large enough to fit a good-sized couch and coffee table, but offers no obvious spot for a TV.

A third room could work as a bedroom, dining room or office

Fortunately, the floor plan is flexible and a den—accessible via French doors—could also be used as a bedroom.

Bedrooms have multiple windows

Built in 1926, the Crillon Court is a full-service doorman condo in the Audubon Park Historic District, a landmarked stretch of the city between 155th and 158th Streets west of Broadway. The building has family-friendly amenities like a bike room, a package room, a garage (with valet parking) and storage bins available for purchase. There’s also a live-in super, and pets are welcome.

The 1 train is about a block away, and the recently restored Fort Washington Park, a 160-acre green space running from 158th to 168th Streets home to new playgrounds, picnic areas, volleyball courts, baseball diamonds and a soccer field, is also close by.


The floor plan is flexible with French doors leading into a convertible third bedroom

That said, the apartment is priced above other three-bedroom condos in the neighborhood, which sold for $885,000 on average in the last 90 days, according to StreetEasy
