Lots of New Yorkers fantasize about living on the Upper East Side. There’s a reason TV loves to glamorize it, after all (we’re looking at you, “Gossip Girl”). And while parts of the Upper East Side boast sky-high price tags, there are definite deals to be found in other parts. The UES neighborhood of Yorkville, for example, offers plenty of more affordable apartments — like our Deal of the Week. This 1-bedroom Yorkville co-op, 448 E. 84th St. #2C, is beautifully renovated with all the fixings.

The Price: $525,000

The median asking price for a home on the Upper East Side is $1.7 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at more than a million bucks below average for the neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $105,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,081. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,819 and a maintenance fee of $1,262.

Why You’ll Love It…

This Yorkville co-op is chock-full of new updates. New hardwood floors, new windows, and recessed lighting greet you when you enter. (There’s also a big walk-in closet in the entry — convenient!) In addition, there are some smart upgrades you won’t see, like soundproofed walls, ceilings, and floors.

The expansive living area also contains a dining nook and open kitchen, creating a large space with lots of room to move. A breakfast bar welcomes you into the kitchen. It’s updated to the nines with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, and charming wainscoting. A window keeps things bright, and high-end appliances, including a dishwasher, keep up the convenience. The bathroom is similarly remodeled, with a frameless glass-walled shower and custom tile. Past the kitchen is the queen-size corner bedroom, featuring both eastern and southern exposures.

Our Deal of the Week is well located, too, in one of many prewar co-ops on East 84th Street. The building has common laundry and storage in the basement, and it’s close to the Q, 4, 5, and 6 trains. Plus Carl Schurz Park, a charming respite on the East River, is only a block away.

… And Why You Might Not

The windows in this Yorkville co-op’s living area overlook a brick wall. But because they face east, they still seem to get a lot of light. And, while the building is investor-friendly, it is not pet-friendly. So cat and dog parents will have to skip out on this one.
