Conversions of old schoolhouses are cool in part because they result in dramatic dimensions like the ones in this co-op. Double-height ceilings deliver walls of windows on two exposures for a sun-drenched, lofted apartment. The white-washed interior gets a flicker of old-school charm with a wood-burning fireplace, plus there is — gasp! — laundry and deeded parking. Greg McHale at Compass is the listing agent.
This spectacular 1,866-square-foot duplex is set in a gorgeous townhouse, and features rooms decked out in marble, porcelain, and reclaimed wood, plus radiant floors and high-end appliances. For any buyer eager for a beautiful, big home with a private garden for under $1 million, this listing by Christian H. Wittmann at Compass beckons.
Listing agent Michael Flatow at Corcoran touts the investor-friendly aspect of this East Village 1-bedroom co-op, which allows subletting from day 1. For buyers who want to live here, the renovated second-floor walk-up unit features 10-foot ceilings, a new kitchen, a sliding barn door, exposed brick, and a closets galore in the bedroom. It’s in a pet-friendly building, too.
This 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit is in mint condition. It’s 1,800 square feet of prime NYC real estate on West 57th Street, smack in the middle of Billionaire’s Row. But since it’s in a land-lease building, the monthly maintenance for this unit is $3,931. For the right buyer, though, it may be worth it. Kaptan Unugur at Sotheby’s International Realty is the listing agent.
This East Village 1-bedroom has lured more than 220 StreetEasy shoppers to call it a favorite. At $600K, it sits right at the sweet spot of NYC real estate, and look at all that prewar charm. There are crown moldings, a wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floors, plus updates in the kitchen and bathroom. The pet-friendly co-op has laundry and an elevator. Listing by Diane Daley at Douglas Elliman.
