Listing of the Day: Bainbridge House One Bedroom

325 E. 201st Street, 1 Bedroom - $149,999

This is a one bedroom unit in one of the best cooperative buildings in Bedford Park. The building, known as Bainbridge House, is impeccably maintained and has a true community feel to it. This unit itself is 650 square feet and is bright and showered in natural light. An apartment of this size is a perfect bachelor pad or for a young couple. Plus, living in Bainbridge House would give you the added benefit of being neighbors with ErLu and a State Senator.

Bedford Park is a great hood. You've heard BoogieDowner gush about our home nabe before, but I'll just briefly run down the notables again. Lots of green space with Mosholu Parkway and the Botanical garden close by; lots of cultural stuff with Fordham University and Lehman College in the hood; lots of great food with Arthur Avenue close by; lots of shopping with 204th Street, the Jerome Avenue BID, Target, and Fordham Road close by.

Another key part of the allure of the hood is the convenient transportation. The B/D is on Bedford Park Blvd and the Concourse, the 4 is at Bedford Park Blvd and Jerome Avenue, and the Metro North is right at the Botanical Garden.
