7th Street between Avenues C and D is arguably the most charming and magical block in the East Village, where tenements give way to colorful but well-tended historic townhouses interrupted only by the venerable Flowerbox condominium building and a sturdy brick apartment building or two and surrounded by a delightful collection of cafes, restaurants and some of the city’s best community gardens. Yes, it’s a hike to the subway, but there are buses aplenty and the East River Park bike and running path is just steps away. It’s hard to imagine an apartment here that’s anything but charmed and lovable, and the one-bedroom co-op at 255 East 7th, listed at $799,000, meets those high expectations–for value if nothing else in a neighborhood of $1M+ studio “lofts” and the occasional apartment with a shower in the kitchen.

The layout of this—according to the listing—legal two-bedroom that’s been converted to one big single-bed is a little quirky, but it’s 100 percent East Village. Thoughtful design means lots of hidden storage, custom fixtures and little luxuries—like a washer/dryer.

The apartment’s versatile layout—there’s room for the return of a second bedroom—and stylish and clever finishes are among its strongest selling points. An open cooking, eating, and living space boasts lots of built-in and hidden storage; built-ins include an ultra-thin 46-inch Samsung LED flat screen TV, a hidden Miele washer and dryer and through-wall air conditioning.

The kitchen is all grown up, with a five-burner industrial Bertazzoni range and Miele dishwasher, and that tall, skinny Liebherr refrigerator is pure space-saving genius.

The bath offers a large soaking tub and Duravit fixtures. Another bonus: the building offers a roof deck with those East Village rooftop views of the Midtown skyline.
