This mid-19th century townhouse in Manhattan’s often overlooked neighborhood of Kips Bay might be a dime a dozen in a Brooklyn neighborhood like Cobble Hill. But in Midtown it’s asking $4.3 million and it looks as cute as a button somehow. This four-story-plus-cellar Greek Revival-style (officially) three-family home sits on a pretty tree-lined residential street. At 18-inches wide its well-maintained and fetching façade is highlighted by custom contrasting shutters.
Located in a boutique 1931 Bing & Bing co-op in Kip’s Bay, a renovated one-bedroom pad has hit the market for $799,000. The light-filled apartment at 140 East 28th Street boasts charming pre-war details like a wood-burning fireplace, arched entry, beamed ceilings, and a classic layout that efficiently separates dining and entertainment areas.
