New York City studio apartments with separate dining spaces are not very common, so if you’re in the market for a new apartment—and like to entertain (small gatherings only, though)—this Astoria studio, 30-83 Crescent St., #C2, might fit your needs.

The unit, which is listed for $299,000, also has two decent-sized closets, and if you get creative, you can tuck in an office in the entry foyer.

The living area is a good size, with ample room for both a seating area and a bed. There are white walls, two large windows, and blonde-wood floors to keep things bright in here.

The windowed kitchen is also sunny and everything is white, including the cabinets, backsplash, and walls. A ledge across from the sink provides added counter space. There’s no full-sized refrigerator, but buyers who mostly order in will probably be ok with the mini under-counter fridge, but real cooks might balk at the dearth of food storage space.

Just off the kitchen is the designated area, a small space—it’s just eight feet by seven feet—that can hold a petite round table and a few chairs.

Like the rest of the apartment, the windowed bathroom is bright and white, and looks like it has an adequate amount of storage space across from the sink.

The studio is in a five-story co-op elevator building with a live-in super, on-site laundry, and available storage lockers. Pets are not allowed, but subletting is—after two years of ownership. Maintenance is $453 a month.
