The hipster-taxidermy theme may be a bit strange, but that aside, everything about this Bronx co-op at 860 Grand Concourse is perfect–especially the $450,000 price tag. As the listing says, the spacious, two-bedroom spread is “contemporary, classic and sophisticated,” with an infusion of colorful, quirky decor. And if moving to our northernmost borough seems like a hike, think again. With a location in the Grand Concourse Historic District just three blocks from Yankee Stadium, that means the building is equally close to the 4, B, and D trains, as well as right next to the shops at Concourse Village.
The classic co-op has a foyer with an entry closet, which leads into what the floorplan calls the dining room. The current owners, have positioned it as more of an entry hall, with a bar area, tons of storage, and art display on the walls.
The dining room, therefore, was moved into the extra-large sunken living room, which has a lovely fireplace and a wall of built-in shelving. Throughout the home are parquet hardwood floors and original Art Deco details like arched passageways and crown moldings.
The eat-in kitchen mixes modern appliances with rustic beamed ceilings and exposed shelves and retro penny-tiled floors.
The master bedroom has lovely corner windows and a large closet, one of five throughout the home.
Interestingly, it may be the bathroom that takes the prize of quirkiest room.
