On the ninth floor of Stewart Hall at 10 Mitchell Place, this sunny one-bedroom co-op definitely says “home” more than “investment property.” Maybe it’s pre-war details like an original mantlepiece, beamed ceilings and hardwood floors, or maybe it’s the wood-burning fireplace, many closets and open sky views, or the almost-secret storybook Manhattan enclave near the East River and elegant Beekman Place. Given the apartment’s size, layout and location, the ask is definitely welcoming at $495,000.
Through an entry foyer, the main living space boasts deliciously dark wood floors, high beamed ceilings and a crackling fire. The listing says there’s a kitchen that “could excel with updating,” and we believe it, especially since it’s not shown.
The bedroom is spacious and bright, with room enough for a full suite of furniture. And about those closets: An alternate floor plan (see it in the gallery below) suggests an enormous closed dressing room–or a fittingly cozy home office–with just a few changes.
Built in 1926, Stewart Hall is situated in a quiet East Side enclave off 49th Street near the United Nations and Beekman Place. The building still retains its beautifully paneled lobby and offers classic old-school amenities like a full-time doorman, live-in super, laundry and a roof deck with staggering East River and Chrysler Building views.
