Even if you’re cat-free there’s still plenty to love about this stylish designer-renovated (junior) one bedroom co-op at 633 East 11th street in the charming heart of Alphabet City. The apartment, though petite, is a perfect mix of classic pre-war quality and modern, luxurious fixtures and finishes, including white painted brick, dark wood floors and a sleek European-style kitchen and bathroom. And, yes, according to the floor plan there’s a built-in litter box tucked out of sight in the bath.
Making the best use of the available square footage, there’s plenty of closet and storage space and a washer/dryer right in the kitchen. Designer accents like a custom wood bookcase, recessed halogen lights with dimmers, a triple-hung closet and a dedicated shoe closet are the kind of small-space solutions we see so often in our favorite design publications.
According to the listing, the home has been featured on Apartment Therapy, Domino and Houzz–and we can see why. The streamlined kitchen is ready for action with Caesarstone counters, custom cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances like a Bertazzoni range, Bosch dishwasher, Kraus sink and Summit refrigerator. A combo washer-dryer fits in seamlessly.
Framed by nine-and-a-half-foot ceilings and white painted brick walls, a windowed bedroom alcove is “an organizer’s dream” with under bed storage and high end USM drawers. Windows with Empire State Building views look out over one of the neighborhood’s lovely public gardens.
The apartment’s luxurious bath boasts a tall glass-walled shower with a rain showerhead, grey marble countertops and custom built-ins.
The six-story, twenty-four unit co-op has low monthly maintenance and offers a common garden and a bike room. Cats are allowed, of course.
