Unless we’re talking about a “sleeping loft,” it’s not that easy to find a true one-bedroom on the Upper East Side for under $1 million, but this charmer at 335 East 90th Street offers that and so much more.

The entrance opens to the first-floor living space, complete with new wood laminate floors, 10-foot ceilings, and a state-of-the-art kitchen with custom cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. The living room has two separate walls of built-in shelving, one more traditional and one a bit fun, with floating boxes set against geometric wallpaper. Not pictured is a built-in designer’s office against the living room wall.
