25 Tudor City Place, also known as Tudor Tower, was one of the original buildings built at Tudor City, one of Manhattan’s largest residential developments conceived by visionary real estate developer Frederick F. French in 1927 as a “suburb in the city.” The building retains its old-world charm with a well-maintained Gothic lobby and historic details in all 443 units, including beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and casement windows. Like many of the pint-sized units that Tudor City is well-known for, this one, on the market for $335,000, offers a price tag to match.
A small entry foyer leads you into a Pullman kitchen equipped with a two-burner stove, a small built-in microwave, and a mini-fridge. Storage is essential in such tight quarters, and luckily this studio offers a generous amount. The kitchen has a full pantry and there are three additional closets throughout the space.
The living area is currently set up with a half-height room divider at the foot of the bed, creating some privacy in the sleeping area. Built-in cabinets around the bed provide more storage options to keep things organized.
At just 300 square-feet, this tiny pad is very compact but if you ever get stir crazy you’ll have plenty of opportunities to stretch out outdoors. Residents have access to Tudor City’s beautiful park spaces and the building’s historic roof deck—complete with gargoyles—overlooking the East River and United Nations.
Along with a great Midtown East location just three blocks from Grand Central, the building also offers a full-time doorman and concierge, central laundry, bike storage, and a gym across the street.
