You might be surprised to learn that there’s a hidden “English village” tucked away on the Upper West Side, and you may be even more shocked that you can live there for under $400,000. Built in 1921, Pomander Walk is a collection of quaint Tudor-style homes tucked behind a private cast-iron gate off West 94th and 95th Streets. This 326-square-foot alcove studio at the address 266 West 95th Street retains lots of the home’s historic charm but has gotten a stylish, contemporary makeover.

Pomander Walk was named for a 1910 play of the same name that opened in New York and took place on an imaginary street in London. The now-landmarked street was built by nightclub guru Thomas Healy in 1921 as a collection of 27 buildings. Originally, they were all configured with one apartment per floor, but today many have been reconfigured as single-family homes. Pomander Walk is maintained by a live-in super and porter and offers bike and private storage.

This first-floor apartment is beyond charming. Enter into a spacious living/dining room, off which is the galley kitchen.

The other side of the living space has a wall of nearly floor-to-ceiling, built-in closets and a cozy window seat with additional storage underneath.

The alcove has plenty of space for a bed and dresser; there’s also another closet here. The bathroom is off the sleeping nook.

According to the listing, the co-op “will approve the installation of a dishwasher or washer-dryer, welcomes pets and allows co-purchasing, gifting, and parents purchasing for children.”
