One-bedroom in a rare Upper East Side clapboard house lists for $500K

January 24, 2019

A little over a year ago, 6sqft discovered a listing for one of three co-op units at 229 East 81st Street, a rare 19th-century white clapboard house. This duplex was listed for $695,000 and recently went into contract for $500,000. Now, the one-bedroom unit on the first floor has also hit the market, asking $499,000. In addition to the house’s magical patio and prime Yorkville location, the apartment benefits from several skylights, modern appliances, and a spacious layout.

The house is hidden behind and accessed via a 20th-century brick apartment building with an additional eight units. Together they make up the co-op Canterbury Mews and are separated by the landscaped brick patio. This apartment is on the top floor of the house and gets great southern light. It has a charming brick wall in the living room, wide-plank wood floors, and stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and a breakfast bar in the kitchen.

This unit last sold in 2013 for just $305,000. The duplex unit listed last year sold for just under its $695,000 asking price, and last month, the unit identical to this one went into contract in just one week–good news for this seller!
