If you’re on the lookout for a Manhattan property in a great neighborhood that costs less than $1 million, you’re going to have to compromise on space –that’s just the daunting real estate market we live in right now. Take, for example, this one-bedroom co-op at 80 Charles Street in the West Village. It’s asking $800,000 and you’re getting 650 square feet. That’s not a ton of room, but this unit definitely manages to fit in personality and charm. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s located right in the heart of the Village, between Bleecker and West 4th Street.
The layout is pretty straightforward, with a living room, bedroom, eat-in kitchen, and a dining area that the listing says could double as a second bedroom. But as you can see above, it may be hard to transform that open, cozy dining area into a livable bedroom… curtains will be necessary! At least there’s plenty of closet space back there.
Another shot of the eat-in kitchen, which has enough room for a table, and plenty of cabinets.
The light blue paint in the bedroom gives this small space a more open feel. Although there’s only one window, the listing brags that the unit has plenty of exposures to bring in light and air. From the looks of the floor plan, you’re getting one large window in each room of the apartment.
And if you’re ever feeling cramped up in the co-op, never fear, there’s a roof deck here! This unit is only one floor below the shared deck, which was just built out and includes a grill, landscaping, a table and lounge seating. It’s also the perfect place to admire your charming neighborhood from above.
