For those of you who say you’d live in a closet just to be near the park, this might be your dream home. And this petite penthouse at 103 East 84th Street isn’t just any closet (though it does appear to be under 200 square feet); not only is this unique co-op in a lovely full-service elevator building off Park Avenue, but the space that has been called “Manhattan’s most adorable penthouse” boasts a charming and sizeable private terrace to rival many a million-dollar property.

The news isn’t all good, though: A hefty maintenance fee makes the wee space seem like less of a deal for $190,000, and the building doesn’t allow sublets, so forget your dreams of Airbnb gold. However, pieds-a-terre are fine, and this would make a charming little bolthole for someone seeking an elevator/doorman pad to wake up in while in Manhattan.

The bright, quiet studio has high ceilings and a newly-renovated bathroom. A kitchen that’s on the in-flight side of efficient gets the job done (and of course you’re free to add your own conveniences). A storage unit is included, which could be incredibly useful–just make sure you remember which one is your apartment.

The listing includes the rather mysterious fact that, “This apartment has been a host to many types of people in the past…” The current owner is a somewhat unconventional retired Catholic priest and author, which the faithful among you might consider a blessing. As mentioned, the classic Upper East Side building offers a full-time doorman, a live-in superintendent, central laundry and bicycle storage.
