We’re told this big and bright pre-war apartment at 1413 9th Avenue is in a 1923 Finnish co-op building. We know that’s not unusual for Sunset Park: In the first half of the 20th century, the neighborhood was home to a large Scandinavian community. But this particular home’s charming interiors are also the picture of Scandi-chic (though we’re pretty sure it’s coincidental). At $560,000, three big bedrooms with plenty of space to spare make the laid-back minimal decor that much easier on the eyes.
Spacious and well-maintained, this fourth floor unit offers open Manhattan skyline views and way more sunshine than a Scandinavian winter.
The renovated windowed kitchen is the picture of modern rustic European style, complete with painted black cabinetry, marble countertops and subway tile providing an elegant backdrop for new stainless steel appliances. Original oak parquet floors and great closet space are just a few of the perks of a pre-war co-op, and new windows and wiring keep things 21-st century efficient.
More rustic chic in the master bedroom joins views and original detail. The building offers a basement laundry room, more storage and a live-in super. The neighborhood, at the eastern border of Sunset Park, offers an incredible mix of ethnic dining options, a nearby park with a gym, pool and ball fields and much more, with D train access within just a few blocks.
