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 with designated dining area, high ceilings, an in-unit washer and dryer, low maintenance, and steps away from Union Square, transportation, and the best shopping and dining ... for under $850k!
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 5B, 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, renovated, windowed kitchen and bathroom, bright living and dining room, high ceilings, wooden floors, and custom built-in closets throughout.
You will enjoy cooking in your large, windowed kitchen with great counter space and ample cabinetry for storage. The kitchen has granite countertops and full sized appliances: a Maytag dishwasher, a GE Profile oven and gas stove, and a fridge. Hidden behind custom cabinetry is a coveted in-unit GE high capacity W/D with dryer that vents out.
Entertain in your bright living room with dining area featuring white wooden floors, and picturesque views of 17th Street.
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, and can be reconfigured to have a standalone shower and larger vanity.
The apartment can be configured to have an open concept kitchen and 3rd bedroom, if preferred! Please see the alternate floorplans.
