Here’s a top-floor, one-bedroom duplex condop at 61 Lexington Avenue in Kips Bay that’s nicely updated, bright, and pretty sizable for the price–and if you like the simplistic stlye, it’s available fully furnished. But the best part is the 300-square-foot private terrace off the master bedroom on the second floor. It boasts sweeping city views, surround sound, an outdoor TV, grill, storage shed, and built-in seating for 10 with cushion storage .
There are hardwood floors and inset lighting throughout, and crown moldings in all but the kitchen and bathroom. A skylight above the circular staircase makes the ascent from the open format living and dining room quite light-filled.
The kitchen is neatly tucked into a corner of the dining room and has plenty of overhead cabinets as well as high-end utilities.
There are two floor plans available, one with a larger central space and one with a second bedroom partitioned off to the side of the first floor. According to the listing, the plan showing a larger living area and no second bedroom is the current configuring.
The building is seven floors and has an elevator, live-in super, and laundry. No pets are allowed. The monthly maintenance is quite high at $2,145, but the seller is subsidizing it for 24 months with a $300 monthly credit. The condop classification means, in this case, that the building is “run like a co-op with condo rules,” so the unit can be rented out, usually a no-no for co-ops, according to the listing.
