This two-bedroom co-op at 214 Bradhurst Avenue in (pretty far) north central Harlem is sunny and sweet. It’s a fourth-floor walkup, but it’s competitively priced at $389,000, which might just make that trip worth it. The home overlooks Jackie Robinson Park, and it’s about five blocks to the nearest subway, which is the 3.
The apartment has been thoughtfully outfitted and updated, with open-plan living making the space feel large and welcoming. Enter through the foyer to nine-foot ceilings and exposed brick accents. Other pre-war details include original pine strip floors and moldings.
A spacious windowed kitchen is open to the dining and living rooms, and an exposed brick wall connects the spaces. You’ll find new stainless steel appliances, new kitchen cabinets, and open shelving.
The apartment’s one bathroom is large and sunny, and, as per the listing, “separated from the rest of the apartment for privacy,” which means that from the bedrooms you’ve got to go through the living room and kitchen to get to it. The front bedroom has French doors and can be used as a den, office/guest room, bedroom, or simply an extension of the living room with views of the park and a large closet.
The master bedroom (the smaller of the two, in this case) also gets the closet-and-view treatment. The apartment has ample storage and there’s more in the basement.
The 12-plus acres of Jackie Robinson Park are directly across the street, offering a band shell, little league fields, and a playground with a multi-million-dollar restoration in the works.
