If you’re curious–and qualified–to take the leap and start shopping for an affordable HDFC co-op, don’t miss this Hamilton Heights listing at 409 Edgecombe Avenue. As an HDFC apartment, there are income restrictions that limit who can buy this $375,000 one bedroom. But for that reasonable price you get 945 square feet of lovely prewar space, including a spacious foyer and formal living and dining rooms. Best yet, the top-floor, corner apartment comes with views out over the Harlem River and out toward Yankee Stadium.
The long foyer–lined with two closets–connects to both the living and dining spaces. Both are decorated with the building’s original parquet floors, picture frame moldings and nine-foot cove ceilings. Three pairs of French doors still boast brass handles, with glass knobs intact.
Each space is also decorated by prominent, modern ceiling fixtures. Although not pictured, a butler door leads into the windowed kitchen, which features original floor-to-ceiling cupboards as well as a service entrance.
The corner bedroom has an adjacent wardrobe closet, plus expansive views. A nearby bathroom still has its cast-iron soaking tub and pedestal sink.
409 Edgecombe Avenue is a prewar co-op built in 1917, now with all HDFC units. The building is located right off Jackie Robinson Park, a few blocks from the Morris Jumel Mansion, and around the corner from the B/D line at 155th Street.
