Hell’s Kitchen, a Manhattan sub-neighborhood of Midtown West, offers lots of perks: proximity to the Theater District, amazing restaurants, and slightly lower prices than the borough on average. “Slightly lower” doesn’t mean cheap, though — we’re still talking seven-figure medians. But among all the older walk-ups and shiny new developments in Hell’s Kitchen, you can easily find lots of amazing deals, like 453 W. 43rd St. #2C. Our Deal of the Week is a 1-bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace, lots of exposed brick, and a newly updated kitchen and bathroom.

The Price: $599,000

The median asking price for a home in Midtown West was $1.4 million this July, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced below half the median for the greater neighborhood!

Assuming a 20% minimum down payment of $119,800, buyers can expect to see monthly payments of $4,376. This includes a mortgage payment of $3,351 and a maintenance fee of $1,025. It’s also right on par with the median asking rent for Midtown West, which was $4,396 this July.

Why You’ll Love It…

All of this apartment’s best assets are on display as soon as you walk in: the high ceilings, wide-plank white oak floors, and exposed brick walls. These vintage details combine perfectly with the new updates throughout to make the place both stylish and functional. In fact, the wood-burning fireplace is pretty much the definition of stylish and functional, and is sure to make for some cozy New York winter nights. Two oversized windows overlook the tree-lined street and keep this big living area bright.

You’ll find some of the unit’s most impressive upgrades in the kitchen, which features new appliances such as a four-range Bertazzoni gas stove, panel-front refrigerator, and the holy grail: a dishwasher. The white subway tile perfectly matches the sleek white cabinetry, which extends to just below the ceiling to provide ample storage space. There’s also enough room in the kitchen and living area for an island, peninsula, or table.

Past a linen closet is the bedroom, which can fit a king-sized bed and has the same large window and exposed brick as the living room. There’s also a walk-in closet! Next door, the bathroom offers a spa-like experience thanks to a deep soaking tub, rainfall showerhead, matte black fixtures, and floating vanity. Adding to the luxurious experience are the unit’s Lutron lighting and through-wall A/C units.

This 1-bedroom is located in a five-story co-op, which has a basement laundry room and allows pets, pied-à-terres, and subletting. It’s also just a few blocks from the A, C, and E trains at 42nd Street and the 7 train at Hudson Yards, for easy commutes no matter where you’re going. Also nearby is a plethora of great restaurants like Pio Pio 8, OBAO, Rudy’s Bar & Grill, and Gotham West Market. Plus, this is a sponsor unit, so you won’t have to deal with the co-op board’s approval process!

…And Why You Might Not

Sadly, this unit is in a building without an elevator — but on the bright side, it seems to be on the second floor. The kitchen is also definitely on the smaller side, occupying just one wall of the living area, so you’ll likely need to bring in an island or table to expand your counter space. Still, for a Hell’s Kitchen 1-bedroom under $600K, this place has plenty going for it!
