If you thought studio living meant shacking up in some super-cramped hovel in a not-so-great building, think again.
An 838-square-foot studio apartment at the luxury One Museum Mile condo in East Harlem has entered contract for its $1.2 million ask, which at $1,432 per square foot, marks a record for the neighborhood, as exclusively reported in The Post.
It might seem that this studio pad — located in a fully amenitized property that fronts Central Park — is an outlier. But in a city where apartment prices have seemingly never been higher, there are a bunch of others just like it. And guess what? There are many studios out there commanding even bigger asking prices.
Located in some of Manhattan’s most iconic buildings, these roomy spreads come with some seriously enviable features: stainless-steel appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit laundry machines and, if you’re lucky, a woodburning fireplace.
Let’s take a look at the top-5 priciest studios now on the market across Manhattan.
1 Central Park South, #1406
Lo and behold, this 887-square-foot dwelling in the Plaza, which asks a cool $2.49 million, is the city’s priciest studio listing, according to StreetEasy. Currently configured with a sleeping alcove, the listing notes that this pad could be converted into a one-bedroom. Even without a walled-off bedroom, this apartment’s still pretty sweet. Just off the living/dining nook is a Juliet balcony that overlooks a courtyard with reflecting pools. The windowed kitchen has Viking and Miele appliances, there’s an in-unit washer/dryer and — coolest of all — there are integrated speakers throughout the condo. The buyer of this home will have access to the Plaza’s amenities, including the gym, spa and concierge service.
