Co-op pick of the week

An East Village renovated co-op where you can sip rosé all day, for $545,000

A lot of extras are packed into this tiny kitchen.


This one-bedroom, one-bath renovated co-op in the East Village, 228 East 13th St., #14, offers lots of prewar details, upgrades, and a surprising amount of custom storage. There are also northern, eastern, and southern exposures, exposed brick, original hardwood floors, and 10-foot ceilings. It is listed for $545,000. 

The kitchen is customized with marble countertops, high-end appliances, and extensive cabinet space. (A formidable stash of rosé makes a nice accent, and perhaps is a subtle play for millennial pink lovers?)

The windowed bathroom is handsome, and features handmade fixtures by Berber Wilson and a claw foot tub.

Storage options abound to display items or keep them out of sight. A built-in bookcase has shelves and cabinets, and the apartment's five custom closets include a walk-in. 

Maintenance is $1,073 and the building, which was built in 1900, has a live-in super, is pet-friendly, and offers bike storage; a 1 percent flip tax is paid by the buyer. 

The apartment is near the L at Third Ave., the 6 at Astor Place, and the R and W on Broadway. Trader Joe's, movie theaters, and bars and restaurants are all close by.
