Just two blocks away from the new Second Avenue subway stop at 96th Street is this very adorable duplex co-op. It’s located at 226 East 95th Street, in Yorkville, a small 29-unit elevator cooperative. This particular apartment last sold in 2014 for $475,000 and is now asking $575,000. A spiral staircase from a brick-walled living room leads up to the single bedroom, which has a sliding door out to the lush private terrace.
The living room, with its walls of exposed brick, also has hardwood floors and a cozy wood-burning fireplace. Sun streams in from a southern exposure.
The open kitchen, adjacent to the living room, was designed with mahogany cabinets, a glass tile back splash, stainless steel appliances and customized concrete counters. There’s not enough space for a dining area, but the island provides a bit of seating.
Up the spiral staircase in the living room leads to a bedroom with built-in cabinets. While the space isn’t huge it comes with a great perk–a sliding glass door at the foot of the bed leading to a sizable, decked terrace. Talk about a nice view to wake up to!
In warm months, this terrace adds significant square footage to the apartment. It’s large enough for plantings, seating and a barbecue. Not a bad investment during the summertime, that’s for sure.
