Co-op pick of the week

This one-bedroom Upper West Side co-op proves the perks of prewar living

Set in Astor Court, an Upper West Side co-op building that was built in 1915, this $879,000 one-bedroom has impressive details, like a central gallery when you walk in (painted a lovely shade of red), a living room with an alcove bar area, built-ins that create an office space, French doors, and ... a grandfathered-in washer and dryer.

We have to say, we appreciate when an apartment sets aside an entire space for a bar cart. These sellers are our kinds of people.

The kitchen's been renovated and has stainless appliances (including a dishwasher) and a dining nook with a window. The apartment has four closets, arched doorways, and high ceilings to boot.

The building, which is at 205 West 89th Street, features a private English garden (shown below), a roof terrace, playroom, laundry services, doorman, and more. 

The apartment, which seems like it would make for a rather ideal pied-à-terre (the listing says they're allowed, with restrictions), has a monthly maintenance of $1,518. The building allows up to 70 percent financing, so you'll have to put down at least $265,000.
