What are the downsides of city living? We’d argue that the two biggest are the lack of easily accessible outdoor space and the inconvenience of having to leave your apartment to do laundry. Nix those annoyances and you’re living like royalty. Yet even in 2018, it’s possible to find NYC apartments with laundry and outdoor space for a semi-reasonable price. Here we’ve rounded up 10 of our current favorites, spread across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, ranging in size from 1-bedroom condos to multi-floor single family homes, all for under $900K. Let’s roll.
In the hierarchy of types of outdoor space in New York City, a private roof deck at the top of list. Usually you have to shell out a ton for those private rights, but here’s a lovely central Park Slope one-bedroom with its very own private roof deck for a decent price.

The in-unit washer and dryer and private backyard are just the tip of the iceberg at this Bed-Stuy garden apartment gem. In addition, you also get a working gas fireplace, exposed brick, an eat-in kitchen and a luxurious master bathroom with a soaking tub. This listing is represented by Rotem Lindenberg of Compass.
Imagine having this private back garden and raised deck for yourself! Located on the parlor floor of a Brooklyn brownstone, the apartment combines classic historic details along with a recent renovation. Listing represented by Anthony Robles, Aran Scott, Susan Lee and James Vallejos of Space Marketing Shop.
This South Slope condo is located at the top of a newly constructed building and offers a private balcony with views of Manhattan. Don’t worry — the building has an elevator so you won’t need to walk up 10 flights of stairs. You can, however, get your cardio fix in the building’s private gym on the ground level. Listing represented by Quinn Hagstrand of Corcoran.
This turn-key condo is an ideal spot for anyone looking to own a piece of property in New York City with minimal maintenance or upkeep. The apartment itself offers an in-unit washer and dryer and a private balcony, while the building itself offers parking and an additional shared roof deck. Listing represented by Taryn A. Wisky and Aguayo Team of Halstead Property.
Here’s another 2-bedroom set-up in Bed-Stuy, complete with private outdoor space and in-unit laundry. Located on the third floor of a brownstone on Putnam Avenue, this condo retains some of the historic charm of the neighborhood while also providing updated touches like central AC and all-new appliances.
