Soho Studio With Tin Ceilings and Built-ins for $575K
349 West Broadway Apt.7 — This third-floor walk-up studio, on West Broadway just under Broome Street (a four-minute walk from both the 1 and A/C/E trains), retains plenty of period details, notably the ten-foot tin ceilings and an entire wall of (white-painted) exposed brick. But the apartment also has some handy updates, like a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and Wolf induction cooktop in the custom kitchen, an 80-inch-wide built-in work space, and some two dozen storage containers tucked under the staircase beneath the queen-size sleeping loft. The living room also has a floating 13-and-a-half-foot stone-topped console and storage cabinet built into one wall. Meanwhile, the renovated windowed bathroom comes with subway and penny tile, a marble vanity, more built-in shelves, a Toto toilet, and a large closet–dressing area just outside.
Prewar Two-Bedroom in Crown Heights for $649K
345 Montgomery Street Apt. 1N — Sitting on a neat, tree-lined block of Montgomery Street (between Rogers and Nostrand Avenues), this first-floor apartment has a flexible, roughly 1,000-square-foot layout that can be arranged as a two-bedroom or a one-bedroom plus a large office or dining room. There are eight windows across three sides, including two in each bedroom and one in the bathroom (which has a claw-foot tub). Compared to the other two-bedrooms available in the building, the kitchen here is more open and renovated, with butcher-block countertops, subway tile, pale-wood open shelves, a farmhouse sink, and recessed lighting. French doors (flanked by ceiling-height built-in bookshelves) connect the living room and the second bedroom, which can also be accessed directly via a sliding barn door in the entrance hallway. The plumbing and electric systems have also been updated.
East Village One-Bedroom With Beamed Ceilings for $685K
172 East 4th Street Apt. 12A — Last sold in 2004, this one-bedroom is on the top floor of a 12-story Art Deco building, so it’s extra bright and you’ll get some open-sky views from the west-facing windows. The unit is fairly large, with a 19-foot-long living room that currently holds a cozy reading nook beneath floating built-in bookshelves. The kitchen has a large, arched pass-through window; bar seating; granite countertops; and a Miele dishwasher. There are original beamed ceilings, picture-frame wall moldings, and parquet floors, plus square black tile floors in the windowed bathroom. The building is a four-minute walk from Tompkins Square Park.
Large Two-Bedroom on the Upper West Side for $920K
336 West End Avenue Apt.1C — There are only five two-bedrooms with two full bathrooms available for under $1 million on the Upper West Side right now, but this apartment is the only one under 79th Street (in a full-service doorman building at the corner of West 76th Street and West End Avenue, to be exact — a four-minute walk from the 1 train and a three-minute walk from Citarella and Fairway Market). While the windowed galley kitchen and the baths could use updates, the unit has nice bones and large rooms. A generous foyer opens to a 24-foot-long living room. The two bedrooms are essentially mirrored, each king size and with a full bath and two large closets. You’ll also find beamed ceilings, herringbone floors, and a decorative fireplace.
