Neighborhood Sutton Place

With gawk-worthy views, a low asking price (for Manhattan, at least), and prime location in a white glove co-op building along Billionaires’ Row, this Sutton Place 1-bedroom is a no-brainer. High ceilings, bold cherry wood plank floors, and huge windows round out the living room, with the dining room and fully-equipped kitchen with custom cabinetry sitting adjacent. The apartment has not one, but two walk-in closets and floor-to-ceiling marble in the primary bathroom. The balcony is large enough for a small patio set and is accessed through the living room.

Neighborhood Greenwich Village

The balcony at this stylish duplex penthouse in Greenwich Village provides views of Thompson Street to the east, Washington Square Park to the north, and downtown Manhattan to the south. And while the balcony is great, it certainly doesn’t overshadow the rest of the apartment, which offers wide plank flooring throughout, 16-foot-high ceilings, and a skylight. The living room is open and airy, featuring a built-in dining nook and the kitchen is accented with quartz countertops and a unique mix of lacquer and wood cabinetry. The entire loft level functions as the bedroom and includes a dedicated office space.

Neighborhood Upper West Side

There’s lots of charm in place at this 1-bedroom abode on the Upper West Side, and room to customize the space to your liking. Exposed brick, a large living room, and sunny bedroom are some of the highlights here, along with a modest-sized balcony that gazes out to the street. The building is also less than two blocks away from Central Park, which is always a nice perk to have.

Neighborhood Murray Hill

Spanning an impressive 825 square feet, this spacious 1-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom checks many boxes. The sun-soaked living room has north-facing views and an entryway to a large balcony that overlooks the neighborhood. A recent renovation ushered in new hardwood floors, doors, and fixtures while still leaving some wiggle room for its next owner to make even more updates. If the private balcony isn’t enough, the building offers a landscaped roof deck with amazing views of the East River, and Empire State and Chrysler buildings.

Last but certainly not least, we have this beautiful 1-bedroom co-op along Grand Street on the Lower East Side. The kitchen has been revamped with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and white cabinetry, and the adjacent living/dining room features huge windows. The large bedroom boasts southern exposures and a walk-in closet, while three additional closets throughout the apartment provide additional storage space. The balcony here gives view to the East River and Corlears Hook Park.
