A full-service pre-war building at a classic Upper East Side address a few blocks from Central Park usually comes with a bigger price tag, but this $395,000 studio at 205 East 78th Street offers those perks, plus move-in ready convenience. Open western views from this compact 17th-floor home join hardwood floors, high beamed ceilings, and clever storage solutions to make the most of the minimal space.

6sqft previously featured this unique West Village studio for its clever design in 2014, when its owners, Jourdan Lawlor and Tobin Ludwig, who bought the charming co-op for a mere $270,000, transformed the 242-square-foot pied-a-terre at 352 West 12th Street into a marvel of brilliant design and space-optimizing solutions. The pair dubbed it “The Wee Cottage” and invested in a renovation that became the stuff of micro-apartment legend (Refinery29 named it the Coolest Tiny Apartment in NYC, and it’s an Instagram favorite). After a spin as a rental, they put their mini-masterpiece on the market last year for $500,000. Now its price has gotten a wee bit smaller, currently asking $429,000 (h/t Curbed).
