New York, N.Y. | $1.349 Million
A three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom triplex in a co-op complex inspired by the villas of Italy
The Villa Charlotte Brontë, designed by Robert W. Gardner in 1926, was intended to serve as a contrast to the large-scale apartment buildings going up in Manhattan at the time. Apartments there rarely appear on the market, as the co-op has just 17 units, prized for their sweeping views of the Hudson River and their picturesque style.
The building is less than half a mile from the Spuyten Duyvil train station, where Metro-North trains regularly depart for Manhattan and points north. The 1 train stops about a mile and a half away, at 231st Street.
Size: 1,995 square feet
Price per square foot: $676
Indoors: This unit has two points of entry: the front door, which opens into a foyer with a coat closet, and another entrance, directly into the kitchen. The second one, which is accessible from the street, is handy for bringing in groceries and receiving deliveries.
Off the foyer is a powder room. Just beyond is a bright living room with hardwood floors, casement windows overlooking the complex, a fireplace with a simple wood mantel and tile surround, and a door to a private balcony.
