Sometimes it’s the details that matter most, reports Citi Habitats agent Bill Beauchamp. He recently sold unit #18B at 201 East 25th Street for $1,700,000 – a full $105,000 over the last asking price of $1,595,000. The two-bedroom, 2-bath co-op features an open floor plan with custom cabinetry and window treatments throughout. The chef’s island kitchen has new appliances, and the master bath boasts heated terrazzo floors.
“The home’s high-end design touches appealed to all potential buyers but the true showstopper was the southwest-facing wrap-around terrace,” said Beauchamp. “This space provides unobstructed postcard views of the Financial District and the East River bridges, as well as the Empire State Building.”
There were two competing offers for the home with the winning buyers being a couple with two children who fell in love with the apartment’s finishes and views. The fact the husband’s office was within walking distance was an added bonus.
“The buyers liked the apartment so much, they bought all the furniture in it!” said Beauchamp. “They had nothing to do but move in.”
