Have your very own slice of historic NYC for less than renting!
This exceptional apartment is truly a no-brainer: a charming prewar home on an idyllic, landmarked block, featuring 2 bedrooms, a bright living room, high ceilings, low maintenance, in-unit washer and dryer allowed, and steps away from Union Square, transportation, and the best shopping and dining ... for under $900k!
Nestled among historic buildings and red-brick townhouses on a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of Gramercy, is the architecturally renowned Beaux Arts coop building, fittingly named "Mon Bijou" (my jewel). This well maintained prewar building is loaded with charm, original detailed molding, and beautiful ceramic tile floors in common areas.
Original marble stairs and plant-adorned windows guide you up to tranquil Apartment 6B, which features views of blue skies, trees, and townhouses across the way.
Currently configured as a split two bedroom apartment, this rare 4-room home features 7 windows, a renovated, windowed kitchen, an updated windowed bathroom, a bright living room, high ceilings, maple hardwood floors, and built-in closets.
You will enjoy cooking in your large, windowed, eat-in kitchen with gorgeous tin ceilings, granite countertops and ample cabinetry for storage. The kitchen features a double sink, Bosch gas stove, Maytag microwave hood, and a fridge. Other apartments in the building fit their in-unit W/D in the wide and roomy kitchen.
Entertain in your bright living room with space for a dining table featuring picturesque views of 17th Street, and the top of the Chrysler Building. Separate from the living room is one of the bedrooms which fits a queen sized bed and has custom built cabinetry. The other bedroom has french doors, and a south-facing window with a romantic view of historic St. George's Church. The recently updated bathroom is windowed with a bathtub shower.

Two blocks from Union Square, this apartment is perfectly situated close to shopping, incredible eateries, activities, and transportation (the NQR and 456 trains leave from Union Square, the L train is just 3 blocks down on 3rd Avenue, and buses in all directions leave from nearby). A Citibike station is on the same block.
The building is also close to multiple grocery stores, including a Westside Market on the corner of 17th and 3rd Ave, and Trader Joe's 3 blocks south, multiple Duane Reades, restaurants, gyms, and is on the same block as beautiful four-acre Stuyvesant Square Park, which has a dog park, extraordinary plantings and old trees, two fountains, and the original cast iron fence from 1847.
