This Beekman apartment may be small, but it’s nothing if not charming. Located at the prestigious Southgate co-op at 434 East 52nd Street, the studio has plenty of pre-war details like beamed ceilings, oak floors, classic moldings, and an exposed brick wood-burning fireplace. It also has a foyer, two generous closets, a separate full kitchen, and a dressing nook outside the bathroom. And it’s asking just $349,000.
Get out your green, because in honor of St. Patrick’s Day we’re putting a twist on the classic real estate comparison conundrum pinning some of the coolest Irish castles currently up for sale against a few New York castles (a.k.a. really expensive condos). Hit the jump to see what’s available in the $2 to $12 million range, and then cast a vote for whether you’d rather having a sprawling 700-year-old stone castle with 380 acres of land in Ireland, or a comfy four-bedroom penthouse at The Brompton in Yorkville. And if you’re not into castles or condos, we’ve also figured out how many pints of Guinness you can get for the median price of an apartment…
Which would you pick?
