The six-story building was built in 1937. 


If you want an apartment with Art Deco touches and a lot of personality, and can live way uptown, check out 115 Payson Ave., #5C. This one-bedroom, one-bath co-op is in Inwood and is listed for $399,000, which is the median price for a one bedroom in the neighborhood, according to StreetEasy.

Located in a six-story, 1937 building, the apartment's prewar features include basketweave wood floors, moldings, and nine-foot ceilings. Art Deco details include a sunken living room and several rounded archways. 

The living space has an open floor plan, with room for a dining room table. The renovated kitchen includes Shaker cabinets, a double apron sink, quartz and butcher block counters, and a subway tile backsplash; an especially uncommon feature is the pair of pass-throughs, helpful for serving and entertaining. The kitchen also has a dishwasher and a Delonghi range. 

The living room has southern and western exposures and views of Inwood Hill Park across the street (from the fifth floor). 

The renovated bathroom features a vintage tub, pedestal sink and recessed lighting. 

The bedroom is approximately 12 feet by 15 feet, and has two windows. In terms of storage, the apartment has four closets with elfa systems. 

Maintenance is $857, and the building has a live-in super, bike and private storage (there's a waitlist for the latter); it's also pet-friendly. (The listing also notes it has "a caring board and welcoming community.")

For transit options, you can catch the A train at 207th Street or Dyckman Street (at Broadway) and shopping and dining options are also along Broadway as well.
