What this sweet studio lacks in square footage it makes up for in sheer charm. It sits on the hidden gem known as Pomander Walk, a 1921 co-op complex on the Upper West Side that’s like a gated mini-neighborhood of low-rise, Tudor-style cottages. The fairytale stretch off West 95th Street has a fascinating history and a magical feel. It’s hard to believe this quaint setting is just steps from the 1, 2, and 3 trains at 96th Street!
Inside, our most popular sale for October 26 is almost as magical as it is on the outside. This alcove studio somehow makes 325 square feet feel like a spacious 1-bedroom, with four bright windows and four closets, too. The sleeping area feels like a real bedroom, albeit one without a door, and there’s even room for a dresser or two. The galley kitchen is tight but well-appointed, with lots of built-in storage. Bike storage and separate storage units are available, too.
