Apartments on some of Alphabet City‘s most charming streets, such as this $549,000 fifth-floor co-op at 323 East 8th Street, have the good fortune of being steps from some of Manhattan’s loveliest public gardens and Tompkins Square Park as well as great bars, cafes and restaurants in every direction. Those charms often offset the sacrifices of tiny, un-renovated properties–or, on the other end of the spectrum, overpriced sleek–often also tiny–new construction. This cute co-op may be a hike up the stairs, but a stunning and stylish renovation and top-notch fixtures and finishes make it more home than crash pad.
A gorgeous open kitchen rocks a Bertazzoni range, a Blomberg refrigerator, warm wood cabinetry, a clean tile backsplash and a huge closet.
Under 10-foot-plus ceilings, the south-facing co-op offers a spacious dining and living space as well.
The bedroom is small and cozy, with a raised double bed loft and exposed brick. There are two more large closets and a raised attic space for off-season storage. The bath is bright and cheery, with a window and, according to the listing, another closet.
The co-op allows pets, subletting 3 out of 5 years, pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing and gifting.
