Co-op pick of the week

An East Village one bedroom is a great deal, if you meet the income requirements

The apartment is in a six-story building dating to 1920. 


This East Village one-bedroom, one-bath co-op, 327 East Third St., 4B, offers lots of quirky charm and a great price for the area. Listed for $582,000 with a low maintenance of $268, the apartment is a great deal, if you qualify. (It's an HDFC co-op, with income restrictions for buyers.) There's one potential drawback: It's on the fourth floor of a six-floor building, and there's no elevator. 

The bright apartment features a large open living area with exposed brick and space for a dining table. There are high ceilings, wood panels, and wide-plank wood floors. 

The kitchen has two windows and a washer/dryer. The layout is currently configured with two "sleeping areas" that appear too small to be considered legal, separate bedrooms. 

The windowed bathroom is newly-renovated, with black and white decorative tiles on the floor and white subway tile on the walls. 

Heat, hot water, and cooking gas are included in the maintenance, the the co-op has a live-in super and bike room; it's also pet-friendly. 

Just off Avenue D, the apartment is near East River Park, and shopping and dining between Houston and Delancey; the nearest train station is the F at Second Avenue.
