Price: $525,000. Assuming a 30-year mortgage and the minimum down payment of 20% ($105,000), StreetEasy estimates total monthly payments at $2,722. This includes the mortgage payment ($1,814) and maintenance fee ($908).
Why it’s so popular: Everyone loves a duplex! Especially an affordable one. Yorkville is a submarket of the Upper East Side, where the median asking price is a high $1.7 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our most popular sale for April 12 at more than a million dollars below average for the neighborhood.
In addition to a fantastic price, this Yorkville duplex has character to spare. The living room and kitchen sport crown molding and a long wall of whitewashed exposed brick. The kitchen’s butcher-block countertop extends the length of the room, creating a built-in work-from-home spot. And the layout is unique, to say the least. The main level of this top-floor unit houses the living space, kitchen, and bath. Above that is a bedroom space and additional sleeping loft, with access to the large, private rooftop terrace. There’s more than enough room up there for lounging, dining, gardening — whatever outdoor pursuits you like!
Finally, the location is on the western edge of Yorkville. That means, unlike some far-east Yorkville locations, this is very close to multiple train lines, Museum Mile, and just four blocks from Central Park.
