Neo-Tudor Co-op With Two Exposures, Peach-Tiled Bathroom Asks $450K


The exterior of a circa 1937 apartment building in Midwood with a co-op for sale is a characteristically neo-Tudor, with turrets on the corners, gambrel roof with steeply pitched gables, and ornamental brickwork punched with rough-cut stones. Heraldic crests accent the doorway, window surrounds and ground-level keystones. The roomy true two-bedroom apartment is in seemingly excellent condition, with period details intact like parquet floors, decorative plaster arches, a built-in niche in the foyer, and peach-colored tiles and fixtures in the bathroom.

Apartment E1 is on the ground-floor facing southeast and southwest with windows on two sides, the larger bedroom taking advantage of both exposures. A hallway comes equipped with four closets, and the smaller of the bedrooms has an additional one. More storage is available for rent.

The listing, from JoAnn Ebanks and Charlie Lewis at Corcoran, suggests a “quick upgrade” of the 1980s eat-in kitchen and vintage bath, but we would probably want to save the latter’s original peach-colored tub and toilet. There’s a separate rain-glass shower. The kitchen has Art Deco-style black and white flooring, laminate counters, a microwave, an older refrigerator that may not be energy-efficient, and what looks like a vinyl backsplash. The living room appears to have space for a wall of bookcases and a dining area.

We’ve covered some similar apartments in this area in the last few months. This one has a brochure in the Columbia Real Estate Brochure Collection that notes its Venetian blinds, still in place, covered radiators, and built-in scales, which we’d like to have a look at. The architect is identified as M. E. Ungarleider.

A 1940 ad for the building notes its in a restrictive zone, which we hope is no longer the case.

Photos from other listings at 1710 Avenue H show a colorful lobby with pastel flower motifs in the floor and mantel, wainscoting, and a coffered ceiling with gilded floriate decoration, as well as a planted garden with a bench and a laundry room in the 37 unit elevator co-operative. Located just outside of Fiske Terrace, this building was originally known as Finke Terrace.

Offered for $450,000, it has a monthly maintenance of $1,148. Do you think it will go quickly?
