For $995K, this two-bedroom East Village co-op has a lot of potential–and a lot of stairs

It’s worth noting that there aren’t too many sixth-floor walk-ups in NYC, but this sunny pre-war co-op is one of them. If that’s not a problem for you, the lovely two-bedroom at 71 East 3rd Street in the East Village could be quite a steal for under a million. It’s back on the market for $995,000 after changing hands for $975,000 in 2016. The floor plan’s a little odd (it appears that two smaller apartments have been combined), but it’s your space to configure any way you’d like and there are plenty of options–and the building has a gorgeous roof deck. The apartment’s interior features stylish, modern updates to compliment exposed brick and classic details.

The classic original details include arched doorways, painted white brick, and high beamed ceilings. Pale, wide-plank timber floors compliment the home’s pale walls. Four exposures mean plenty of sun–and Empire State Building and Freedom Tower views.

A tidy European-style kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar. There’s room for dining in the adjacent space next to a wall of windows.

The bathroom rocks a covetable cast-iron claw-foot tub and two windows.  According to the listing, the wallpaper features a design by architect/designer Josef Frank. Another perk: An in-unit washer/dryer means you won’t have to drag the laundry up and down stairs.

Bedrooms (currently there is room for as many as three) are cheerful, cozy and sunny with lots of windows and brick.

The building’s landscaped (common) roof deck is another way to enjoy the great views, and there’s a garden on the ground floor. The building also features all new mechanicals and new windows. Bicycle storage and a storage cage are available in the basement, and parents purchasing for children and pieds-a-terre are allowed.
