In search of some prewar space on the Upper East Side? Check out this one-bedroom, one-bath co-op in Carnegie Hill, 140 East 95th St., #4B, listed for $675,000.

The apartment is in a 1928 building designed by Springsteen and Goldhammer, an architecture firm that featured both Mediterranean and medieval touches in their work, which can be seen in the design of the red-tiled structure on the roof deck.

The entrance of the generously sized apartment has a foyer with two closets. A dining area large enough to accommodate a table for four flows to an open living room with an oversized window. Prewar details like hardwood floors, high ceilings, moldings, and arched entryways can be found throughout, while the living room has recessed lighting. 

The kitchen could probably use an update, but is in good shape, and has a window, as does the bathroom, which looks to be in comparable condition. 

The nearly 12-by-15-foot bedroom has northern and eastern exposures. 

The co-op's landscaped shared roof deck offers a spot to lounge and check out city views. 

Maintenance is $1,296, and the building has bike room and storage space, laundry facilities, and is pet-friendly. It's located on a tree-lined block of townhouses, and is a block from the 6 train at 96th Street; the N and the Q are at 96th Street at Second Avenue. 

Shopping, eating, and drinking spots can be found up and down Lexington and Third avenues, and Central Park, the Guggenheim, and more are a short walk to the west.
