Size and layout can make or break an apartment. This prewar Turtle Bay one bedroom, 865 United Nations Plaza, #3C, is relatively large, at over 930 square feet—some new construction condos with two bedrooms and two baths don’t even have that much space—and it has a good, functional layout. At $950,000, it’s priced below the $995,000 median for one-bedroom condos in the area, per StreetEasy.
The east-facing living room and bedroom get plenty of sunlight, and have a view of the United Nations building. The apartment also has been renovated and features refinished hardwood floors throughout.
The entry foyer is large enough for a side table, and has not only a closet, which would make for an ideal place for coats and shoes, but also a walk-in closet at its other end.
The living room, with a high-beamed ceiling, is more than 22 feet in length and can comfortably fit a dining table near the entry along with a living set toward the windows.
Though narrow, the windowed kitchen has been refinished with a marble countertop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher, and new cabinets. It also has four built-in shelves for cookbooks or whatever you want to keep close at hand.
The bedroom is large, at about 230 square feet, and has the apartment’s second walk-in closet.
The bathroom entrance is through the bedroom. It, too, has a window, along with marble finishes, a custom vanity, and a soaking tub.
The pet-friendly building includes a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, and central laundry room. Monthly common charges are $851; monthly taxes are $897.
United Nations Plaza is essentially part of First Avenue. The building is located between 48th and 49th streets. The subway is a bit of hike: The nearest trains are the 6 at 51st Street and Lexington Avenue, and the E and M with an entrance at 53rd Street and Third Avenue. On the plus side: There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area.
