We’ve got some open house picks for those looking to relocate and the theme this weekend is light. Each of the listings seems to emphasize number and size of windows, and if the apartment isn’t sunbathed then it’s sunlit. Perhaps we’re all just looking forward to warmer times. Stop by on Sunday and see how bright they really are!
140 8th Avenue #2N, between Garfield & Montgomery Places
Open House: Sunday January 6, 1-2:30pm
This one bedroom corner apartment is in a premier doorman building with an art-deco lobby, and features six windows (including one in the bathroom), a renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and modern cabinetry, beautiful hardwood floors, and ample storage including three walk-in closets. The co-op building is pet friendly and offers washer and dryer. The apartment is priced by Corcoran at $399,000 ($1,058 maintenance).
10 Montgomery Place #2B, between 8th Avenue & PPW
Open House: Sunday January 6, 12:30-2pm
A hop and a skip from the 8th Avenue open house is another one-bedroom, this one “sun-filled and oversized.” The pre-war apartment (pictured above) features six large windows, ten foot ceilings, original plasterwork ceiling trim, beamed ceiling in the bedroom, soaking tub in the bath, hardwood floors, juliet balcony, and a sun-bathed eat-in kitchen. The building, built in 1910, has been recently renovated with a new roof, restored cornice, and refinished front window frames. The listing mentions Montgomery Place as being part of New York Magazine’s “10 Best Blocks in New York City” which is a suspiciously difficult source to track, but the block is by all accounts a lovely one. The apartment is priced at $545,000 ($895 maintenance).
235 Lincoln Place #6F, between 7th & 8th Avenues
Open House: Sunday January 6, 11am-1pm
This two bedroom/one bathroom apartment is located on the top floor of an elevator building with full-time doormen. The apartment is lit by eight windows with views of Manhattan, and features floor-to-ceiling bookcases, granite counter tops, five large closets, hardwood floors, and a spacious foyer which can double as an office space. The kitchen is windowed and eat-in, but the prep space looks like it might be a bit tight. The building is a pet-friendly co-op with a new roof, new heating system, convenient laundry and storage, and a live-in super. The place is listed by the owner at $750,000 ($1,344 maintenance) and described as being part of “a warm community of artists, professionals, families, young couples, and longtime residents.”
580 Carroll Street #4B, between 4th & 5th Avenues
Open House: Sunday January 6, 12-1:30pm
One of two apartments available in the chic and modern building designed by Enrique Norten, this two bedroom apartment offers an open floorplan with floor-to-ceiling windows, multi-zone temperature control, a kitchen outfitted with white marble counters and backsplash, bathrooms with ceramic tile and Kohler fixtures, and– in the master bathroom– an oversized spa shower. The building features a 3,500 square foot landscaped garden with cedar boardwalk, as well as private outdoor space for some of the units (no mention of whether this unit is one of the lucky ones). Private parking and storage units are available at an additional fee and bike room is available for all. The unit is priced by Corcoran at $959, 500 ($767 maintenance). The second unit available, #1A, is a slightly larger two bedroom/two bath and priced at $1,046,250 ($748 maintenance). Check it out at its open house, which is being held at the same time.
