If you’re stuck on the idea of living in Manhattan, in a super-desirable neighborhood near just about everything great, but you’re on a budget of under $1 million, you’re probably checking out studios. And if you’re good with studio living, this gorgeous little pre-war co-op at 1 Rutherford Place in Gramercy Park would be hard to turn down. Besides being in a lovely building and possessed of custom details like a wall of steel and glass, you get a private outdoor terrace that’s almost as big as the apartment itself.
On the fifth floor (yes, it’s a walk-up) of a lovely brick corner townhouse–that one with all the cool windows, some of which will be yours!–on historic Rutherford Place, this bright, cheerful apartment has Art Deco details, original hardwood floors, arched doorways, high ceilings, those big, sexy steel-framed casement windows that are all the rage at the moment and exposed brick walls.
An updated, windowed galley kitchen is ready to get down to business, lined with clean, stylish subway tiles. The clean and serene bath is also compact, stylish and up-to-date. There are three generous closets as well.
Perhaps best of all, that 325-square-foot terrace with city and skyline views awaits evening entertaining and weekend relaxing.
This landmarked building has only 10 units; there is storage and a free laundry room in the basement.
