Think this is big? Wait until you see the outdoor space.

Just in time for spring, here comes a Lincoln Square 1-bedroom with epic outdoor space. Listed for below market value, it’s a clear pick for our Rental of the Week and has us dreaming of the warmer seasons ahead.

Address: 224 W.  72nd St. #2R

Price: $2,825

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Lincoln Square

Best feature: With 400 square feet of private outdoor space and a decorative fireplace mantle, this apartment promises to be glorious in the summer and cozy in the winter. The oversized patio is essentially like having a second bedroom en plein air. Inside, the apartment offers a new kitchen with a breakfast bar, a spacious bedroom and a large common area.

Why it’s a deal:  This apartment is a great deal compared to other 1-bedrooms in the borough and the neighborhood. At $2,825, it’s $470 less than the median asking price for 1-bedrooms in Manhattan and $919 less than the median rent for 1-bedrooms in Lincoln Square.

Biggest drawback:  The building is located on West 72nd Street just off of Broadway. While the convenience can’t be beat, the block is hectic and very commercial. The apartment itself is literally on top of a pet store. It is also worth noting that the listing description only mentions one closet.
