NYC Homes Under $1M on StreetEasyArticle continues below
We kick off our tour of open houses for January 29 and 30 with a winner — a renovated corner 1-bedroom in the Clinton Hill Co-ops. This popular prewar complex has been a solid buy for decades. (Five of the seven apartments listed for sale in the building are already under contract.) At 750 square feet, this bright corner unit has attracted more than 80 StreetEasy shoppers. The classic white kitchen is newly updated — ditto regarding the pristine bathroom. Just as wonderful, the coop recently upgraded the windows.
Feast your eyes on this massive SoHo loft. At $4.5M, this is rare territory for most mortals. But we can dream! The residence spans 2,600 square feet under 11-foot ceilings and sports a wall of super-tall windows overlooking Broadway. It’s all situated in a coveted cast-iron prewar building with minimal turnover. Special, indeed!
This sumptuous 2-bedroom for $975K avoids the Mansion Tax since it’s under $1M. It’s also a classic example of the value found in Murray Hill. Set in a gorgeous brick prewar with a furnished roof deck, this co-op unit sports a lovely kitchen with a breakfast bar and dishwasher. But of course, there’s more — hardwoods, gas fireplace, new AC units, a new bathroom, with monthlies under $1.6K. It’s one to see!
We head to prime Park Slope for our next open house on January 29 and 30. It’s an oversized 3-bedroom/1-bathroom apartment in a handsome barrel-front limestone townhouse just a block to Prospect Park. Here you will find plenty of prewar charm — not to mention livable dimensions. Original millwork and moldings give way to updates in the kitchen and bathroom. The maintenance fee is modestly less than $600. It truly ups the affordability of this $1.25M listing.
We end with a perfect perch in the Upper West Side. It’s a lofted studio a hop, skip, and jump to the Museum of Natural History and Central Park. It’s loaded with prewar charm and detail: Double-entry wood door, wood-burning fireplace, and stained glass windows — yowzah! Very generous purchase rules, including pied-a-terre use.
