In a Bronx neighborhood known for comfortable living at reasonable prices and for its six-story pre-war elevator co-ops, this large alcove studio at 601 Pelham Parkway North is a fine example of both. The unit’s $128,000 ask alone is worth noting; a glance at the floor plan shows that while the space isn’t palatial, it goes beyond the usual one-room studio, and its kitchen and bath have more going for them than many we’ve seen in more expensive properties. The Art Deco building is, according to the listing, the neighborhood’s “most sought after.”
With its living areas facing a quiet tree lined street, this pre-war alcove studio begins with a gracious entry foyer. Continue with a step down to the living and dining rooms, which offer plenty of space for furniture, guests and general living.
Polished wood floors and Art Deco details make an interesting and spacious layout even better.
A windowed kitchen offers high-end, high-performance appliances including a Bertazzoni range and Blomberg refrigerator.
A tranquil alcove bedroom lies across from a separate hallway. A windowed bath offers treetop views; just outside is a separate dressing area.
Yet another small-but-separate space works as an office/den/nursery. Built in 1937 and designed by notable architect H.I. Feldman, the building has a stunning Art Deco lobby as well as laundry and storage, all just across the highway from the Botanical Gardens and Bronx Zoo and steps from the 2 and 5 subways.
