Summer feels far away… but this apartment’s lovely patio will at least bring back memories of New York’s warmer months. The very private, enclosed outdoor space is a part of this one-bedroom at the Lenox Hill cooperative 150 East 61st Street. After selling in 2010 for $400,000 it’s back on the market asking $599,000. The ground-floor abode boasts some unique design quirks like colorful wallpaper and decor, but a new buyer will have an opportunity to make the interior–as well as that awesome patio–their own.
An entrance hallway leads to a modest foyer, which then opens into the living space. The current owner has decorated the space in various pale shades. It is laid out with one bedroom behind french doors, three closets, a separate kitchen and large bathroom. Some built-in shelving provides a little extra storage, too.
The bedroom–with a bold, flower wallpaper print–has direct access into the bathroom.
Here’s one more look at the patio, which fronts both the bedroom and living room. It’s been designed to feel like a total outdoor escape away from the hustle of the city. And if you want outdoor space right in the midst of the city, Central Park is just a few blocks away.
150 East 61st Street is a postwar cooperative, erected in 1960, with 131 apartments. The building doesn’t have a long list of amenities, but it does boast a full-time doorman. And you can’t beat the location, with the park, plus the 4/5/6 and N/Q/R/W subway lines, a short walk away.
