A foyer, sunken living room, original parquet floors, and a separate modern kitchen are not attributes commonly associated with studios, but this alcove studio on the Upper East Side offers all that and more for just $419,000. Located in the 1930s Eastgate co-ops at 235 East 73rd Street, the apartment is bright and sunny and surprisingly spacious with a separate sleeping alcove and roughly 400 square feet of space to work with.
Nine-foot beamed ceilings further open up the apartment, as does the entry foyer with a wall-to-wall closet. There’s one more closet, as well as a windowed bathroom. Down a few stairs, the living room has enough room for a couch, two chairs, and even a small desk/dining table set up.
The kitchen has been renovated to include lots of storage space, custom white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a mosaic backsplash, and marble counters.
The Eastgate was designed by famed co-op architect Emery Roth and built by Bing & Bing in the 1930s. It’s pet-friendly and allows pied-a-terres and guarantors. There’s a full-time doorman, gym, laundry room, and outdoor garden.
