The Price: $475,000

The median asking price for a home on the Upper East Side was $1.9 million this July, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard, meaning our Deal of the Week’s price is just about a quarter of the neighborhood median!

Assuming a minimum 25% down payment of $118,750, buyers can expect to see monthly payments of $3,771. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,491 and a maintenance fee of $1,280.

Why You’ll Love It…

With its hardwood floors and tall beamed ceilings, this studio has both pre-war and modern charm. But what really sets it apart is its wood-burning fireplace, which is sure to keep the place cozy in the fall and winter. All of the unit’s windows face south and overlook the garden, meaning you’ll get lots of light throughout the day without street noise. The main room has extra large windows and is large enough for a bed, couch, and small dining or work from home setup.

The kitchen is separated from the main living area through a doorway, so you won’t have to cook and sleep in the same exact space. Another feature that makes this kitchen stand out from other Manhattan studios: it comes with full-size stainless steel appliances, including a mounted microwave and a dishwasher! There’s also a decent amount of storage space thanks to custom cabinetry. Speaking of storage, there are two walk-in closets in the unit, one in the foyer and one next to the bathroom.

Both the bathroom and kitchen have south-facing windows, too. In the bathroom, you’ll find marble tile, a cast-iron tub, a pedestal sink, and a medicine cabinet.

The unit is located on the fourth floor of a pet-friendly elevator building with a full-time doorman, laundry room, gym, bike storage, and resident library. In-unit laundry is allowed with board approval, as are pied-a-terres, parents purchasing, and co-purchasing. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, the brick co-op building is less than 500 feet away from the Q stop on 72nd Street and a quarter mile from the 6 train at 68th or 77th Street. There is plentiful shopping, bars, and restaurants within a couple of blocks, including Anthropologie, Nordstrom, JG Melon, Seamore’s, and The Stumble Inn.

…And Why You Might Not

Of course, with all of its perks, this place is still a studio, so it only has so much room. If you’re looking for something with a bit more space, this probably won’t fit the bill. The 25% minimum down payment requirement is also a bit higher than the standard 20% for co-ops. But if you’ve been searching for an amenity-filled unit in the heart of the Upper East Side under $500K, this one is certainly for you.
