A Lincoln Square co-op for culture vultures

Share this Article

This one-bedroom co-op in Lincoln Square, listed by Keller Williams for $825,000—which is about average for the neighborhood—feels like the ideal spot for locals and pied-à-terre types who want a home base from which to explore the city's cultural offerings. Situated in the Lincoln Guild building, a 420-unit co-op with 24-hour staff, the apartment offers impressive city views, thanks to its enclosed terrace. Plus, it's mere blocks from Lincoln Center, and near Central Park and Riverside Park as well. 

Though the building was constructed in the 1960s, the apartment was recently renovated. Its large open living room with new hardwood floors abuts a dining alcove, which is adjacent to what may be the space's biggest selling point: a glassed-in terrace with city views and enough space for additional seating. It looks like the perfect nook to take a pause from hectic city living and for having your morning coffee.

The kitchen, too, has been updated with custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and high-quality appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher.

The bedroom, which is a little over 160 square feet, is somewhat plain, with south-facing windows, but we like the ample closet space. The attached bathroom, with its contrasting light and dark tile, looks fresh and new, though the sink is on the small side. 

A walk-in closet has been turned into a nursery, but could easily be converted back for additional storage space. The building also offers two laundry rooms, a 24-hour doorman and weekday concierge service, and most promising, a parking garage. Note that the lobby is currently undergoing renovation, which might make for some noise; monthly maintenance is $1,142, which includes utilities.
