At the end of last year, the price of this East Harlem two bedroom, 1790 Third Ave., #704, was reduced from $1,084,050 to its current asking of $995,000. That's above the median asking price of $649,000 for similar-sized apartments in the area, according to RealtyHop.

It's also above the sale price of the building's penthouse apartment, which sold below asking towards the end of last year for $985,000, according to records. However, the condo has plenty to recommend it including floor to ceiling windows and that enviable amenity, the in-unit washer/dryer. 

There are seven apartments for sale in the new development, which was finished in 2017. The pet-friendly building has 52 apartments and common charges are $890.  Building amenities include an elevator, a virtual doorman, a shared roof deck, and bike storage. Additional storage is available for a fee. 

The living room is open to the kitchen which has plenty of cabinetry even if countertop space is tight. Though not seen in the pictures, the layout shows a breakfast bar, which provides additional counter and storage space. There are European white oak hardwood floors and Bosch appliances, including a dishwasher. (The layout doesn't exactly match the pictures, suggesting the listing photos may include some from a model unit).

There are no pictures of the second bedroom but the larger of the two shows built-in closet space and floor-to-ceiling windows. PTAC heating and cooling units are installed in the apartment.

The modern bathroom is finished with a Duravit vanity, Grohe fixtures, and has a tub with a showerhead. The bath is shared by both bedrooms. 

The second bedroom has a funky shape but has a window facing west, one of the best orientations for natural light. 

The building is close to Central Park and transit options include the Q line on Second Avenue and the 6 line at the Lexington Avenue subway station on 96th Street.
