Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city. Today’s task: Manhattan one-bedrooms asking under $500,000.
Located on East 51st Street between First Avenue and Beekman Place, this spacious one-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op is asking $325,000. That seems like a steal for this massive Midtown East apartment, but the co-op does have somewhat steep maintenance charges of $2,840 per month. Residents in this co-op also have access to a planted roof deck, bicycle storage, and a laundry room.
This East Village one-bedroom is a bit of a schlepp: it’s a sixth floor walk-up. But if you can make an exception on account of the location—on East 12th Street between First and Second Avenue—you will find that this co-op features stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, a cozy breakfast bar, hardwood floors, and a bedroom that can fit a queen sized bed. For all of that it’s asking $495,000.
If you can get past the fact this is a fourth-floor walk-up, then this cozy co-op on the Upper East Side has quite a bit going in its favor. That includes the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, the breakfast bar, the fact that the apartment gets plenty of light, and that it’s located just a few blocks south of the 86th Street subway station on the 4,5,6. For all of that, you’ll have to shell out $447,000.
Located on the top floor of a five-story walk-up building in Murray Hill, this one-bedroom co-op was recently renovated and features a wood-burning fireplace, an exposed brick wall in the living area and original moldings from the time it was used as a single family home by John Pierpont Morgan, according to the brokerbabble. The co-op is asking $490,000.
This sunny and spacious one-bedroom in the Hudson Heights section of Washington Heights is on the market for $399,000. The co-op spans 700 square feet and comes with nine-foot-tall ceilings, three large closets, and wooden floors. Residents of this co-op also have access to two on-site laundry facilities and courtyards.
