This is a large one bedroom in a beautiful old townhouse in Mott Haven. The pictures show one of the nicest apartments I've seen listed down here in a very long time. The exterior of the building looks like something out of the 1920s Mott Haven, and the interior looks like a thoroughly sleek and updated apartment.
Mott Haven has some cool stuff to offer. There's the nascent and growing arts scene, great bars and restaurants (Bruckner Bar and Grill, Alexander's, Santa Clarita, Pio Pio etc.), beautiful architecture, and proximity to Manhattan.
This apartment is right in the thick of it all - a block away from Alexander Avenue, down Willis Avenue from Santa Clarita, a quick walk down to Bruckner Blvd. for a bunch at other spots both artsy and gastronomic. The price for this unit might seem a little high, but the apartment looks extremely well kept and cared for. Plus, all utilities (including electric methinks) are included.
The subway stops right at 138t Street, and is only one stop to Manhattan.
