Yorkville has long been considered one of Manhattan’s more affordable uptown neighborhoods–although that’s been changing in recent years–but here’s a neighborhood pad that’s not priced too high. For $695,000 you’ll get a one-bedroom duplex within the historic brownstone at 421 East 84th Street. The upper floor boasts two large windows and a wood burning fireplace, while the lower level has enough space to fit a king-sized bed and other furniture. Plus, it’s located just a few blocks away from the new Second Avenue subway station at 86th Street.
The first level of the apartment, located on the brownstone’s parlor floor, holds the two south-facing windows, a wood burning fireplace surrounded by exposed brick, and a windowed kitchen. Lots of overhead space above the kitchen provides bonus room for storage.
The kitchen is separated from the living room by a breakfast bar. Inside, there are stainless steel appliances as well as plenty of counter and cabinet space. Then there’s a full bathroom adjacent to the kitchen.
A spiral staircase to the lower level leads you to the master bedroom. It’s a big room with AC, a full subway-tiled bathroom and built-in storage.
This brownstone was built in 1900 and is tucked onto a tree-lined street between First and Second avenues. Besides its convenient location next to the new subway stop, it’s also just a few blocks away from Gracie Mansion and Carl Schurz Park.
