Here's a condo that can't decide if it's a suburban ranch house or an apartment, and we mean that in the best possible way. The 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 1-car parking condominium, in a early-'70s standout on a long stretch of mostly old-school co-ops and grand mansions, is asking $2,900,000. There's a huge wrap-around garden and deck with good views- even though it's the first floor- and seem to have some kind of windscreen plus a greenhouse structure/shelter. Just no lawn. Purchased in 1992 for $950,000 and looks like it could use some work despite having the '70s vibe perked up a bit for the sale.
Maybe less mirrored-walls and white tile, but it's also big and open, with high ceilings and easy access to the private outdoor space. Built in the age of the three-Martini lunch, there's a wet bar- presumably to pick up where you left off after arriving home. Downsides? The HOAs are $2783 a month, and it's adjacent to that convent/girl's school/party venue, the Flood Mansion, perennially clogging Broadway with double-parked soccer moms, florists, caterers, valet parking and the like. On the other hand, if you need a 24-hour doorman, you go to charity balls and your kid goes to one of the Sacred Heart schools, it's a total win. Open house on Sunday, July 17 from 2:00 to 4:00PM.
