Condo pick of the week

Skylights and huge windows brighten this East Village one bedroom

This one bedroom, one and a half bath is in a prewar East Village building that was converted to condos in 2008, and inside, the feeling is airy and contemporary.

A top-floor corner unit, the apartment has multiple exposures, big windows, and skylights, and comes with a few extras, including a decorative fireplace, a washer and dryer, and central air. The apartment is listed for $1.895 million, which by current neighborhood standards is only slightly above average, according to a sampling of listings currently on StreetEasy

The open living and dining area has south- and west-facing windows, skylights, and a sleek decorative fireplace.

The minimalist design serves as a blank slate for decorating.

The black-and-white kitchen is tucked into a corner but appears to have a decent amount of storage, as well as upscale appliances and a wine fridge. 

The bedroom has dark wood floors, large windows, and a wall of closets for storage. 

The full bath has double sinks, and an additional half-bath has some striking wallpaper. 

The roof deck is landscaped and furnished, but note that it's right below the bedroom, and you'll be sharing it with the residents of the building's 11 other apartments. (The listing describes the bedroom as "completely insulated," for what it's worth.)

The building is on a busy stretch of Second Avenue at St. Marks Place, near a huge number of bars and restaurants, and only two blocks from the Astor Place subway station.
