There’s nothing to hate about this prewar co-op at 199 East 7th Street, a stately brick building in the East Village. Now on the market for $825,000, it holds one bedroom and one bathroom over 750 square feet. Original details like oak floors and high ceilings are coupled with newer upgrades like recessed lighting and a modern kitchen. All together, the mix of finishes makes for one very cute apartment.

A long foyer leads to the spacious living room, which gets lots of light through south-facing windows. There’s enough space here for a few couches and an office area.

Directly adjacent to the living room is the renovated kitchen. It’s been decked out with colorful tile work offset by custom, white cabinetry, as well as stainless steel appliances that include a dishwasher and washer/dryer.

On the opposite side of the living room, through French doors, is a bedroom that could fit a king-sized bed. Besides two closets, and built-in shelving, there is bonus overhead storage. Also two large windows bring more light into the space.

This co-op, situated between Avenues B and C, was built in 1935. It now holds 18 units over five floors. The listing suggests that this particular apartment embodies the spirit of the East Village, calling it “cozy, charming, artistic, modern and eclectic all in equal measure and very much in the spirit of its surroundings.” Do you agree?
