How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

It isn’t easy to find a good-sized two-bedroom, two-bath apartment in Manhattan for less than $1 million. But if you're willing to live way uptown, this condo at 456 West 167th St., #6E, in Washington Heights, not only has 933 square feet, it’s also listed for just $749,000—down from the original $800,000 it was listed for in May. (Still, that's higher than the median asking price of $589,000 for a two bedroom in the neighborhood, according to StreetEasy.)

It also has a windowed office (or den) and the open plan for the kitchen, dining, and living room areas actually looks like each has its own designated space; and there’s a balcony to boot.

The unit has an angled shape, so even though there it looks like there are only two exposures in the floorplan, there are actually east, west, and north views. The living room area also has a through-the-wall air conditioner, so you don’t have to worry about having the appliance block the view or the light.

The kitchen (pictured at top) has granite countertops, GE Profile appliances, a dishwasher, and a microwave. It could benefit from an island. The unit also includes a washer/dryer.

 

The two bedrooms are split by the living room and entrance to the balcony. The master bedroom is en-suite. The second bedroom has what is marked as a walk-in closet, but it’s only 3-feet deep. It also is accessed through the office area, which is a bit odd.

 

The windowed office area has built-in shelves in the corner and shelving attached to the wall which doubles as a desk, making the space efficiently organized. The room, nearly 80 square feet in size, could also be used as a playroom or nursery.

 

Both bathrooms come with a bathtub. The second bathroom is located off the kitchen.

The 51-square-foot balcony faces northeast and doesn’t appear to have any tall buildings blocking the view.

The apartment is in the 49-unit Edgecombe Parc Condominium, which was built in 2014. Amenities include a doorman, fitness center, roof deck, and bicycle storage. The building is pet friendly. Monthly common charges are $592; monthly taxes are $807.

The A, C, and 1 trains are three blocks away at 168th Street and Broadway. The building is also down the block from Highbridge Park, which runs along the Harlem River and has a mountain biking course and a skate park.
