This week we looked at the Bronx neighborhood of Concourse, home to the Champs Élysées-inspired Grand Concourse, and also distinguished by many grand co-op buildings.

This one-bedroom, one-bath rental, 811 Walton Ave., #C18, is in one of those elegant buildings, a 1927 co-op, so you’re likely renting from an owner. The apartment appears recently renovated, or in the words of the listing, “barely lived in and nearly new.” It is listed for $1,795 a month. 

The median rent for a one bedroom in Concourse is not available, likely because of a lack of inventory, however the median asking rent for a studio there is $1,500, according to StreetEasy, making this apartment well priced, considering its size.

There’s a foyer and a large living room that wraps around a smaller room—which is perhaps an addition? The small room is labeled a bedroom on the floor plan, but at less than 7-feet wide, it is too small to be a legit second bedroom. The actual bedroom is a room that’s about 150 square feet. 

The windowed kitchen has granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

 

The elevator building has a gym, yoga studio, and laundry room. It is about two blocks from Yankee Stadium and the B, D, and 4 express trains, and across the street from Franz Sigel Park. Bronx Terminal Market, which has Home Depot, Target, and other major stores, is a short distance from the building.
