Brick UndergroundFebruary 01, 2013
Pied-a-terres are welcome in this $875k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in Chelsea, which features two skylights, wall-mounted Bose speakers and a multi-zone, ductless central a/c system.

If you’re looking for a part-time residence, or a place for which you can get a little help in the payment department, you might take notes on this edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings StreetEasy users saved more often than any others this week -- since it features apartments that allow pied-a-terres, co-purchasing, sublets and more.

In Chelsea on 23rd and Ninth Avenue, a sweet-looking $875k two-bedroom, one-bathroom prewar co-op allows pied-a-terres. It features new double-hung 12-pane windows and two skylights. The renovated kitchen is equipped with Miele and Gaggennau appliances and a W/D. There's also a multi-zone, ductless central a/c system and wall-mounted Bose speakers. The hardwood floors have been refinished. The catch: It's a 4th floor walkup.

A $575k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on 78th and Third Avenue on the Upper East Side is open to pied-a-terres, guarantors, parents buying for children and sublets. (Pets are welcome too!). The corner unit has a wood-burning fireplace and high ceilings, along
with copious window bars and a short supply of natural light. On the major plus side, an in-unit washer-dryer is permitted, and maintenance includes all utilities, such as gas and electric. The full service building offers a 24-hour doorman.

Pied-a-terres and co-purchasers are encouraged for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condop on the market for $599k. This north-facing apartment on Ninth Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues offers views of the tree-lined street and is less than a minute from Washington Square Park. The bathroom is brand new.
