This unit is pretty big for a one bedroom at 800 square feet. It looks like the unit has been languishing on the market since February '09 with an initial asking price of $125K. There have been two chops since then, with the last coming in late summer to bring the asking down to $110K.
The space itself is nothing all that special. Average to below average kitchen, same with the bathroom. Although, the raw space is attractive at this price point. When you scroll through the pics after the jump, it kind of seems like the place wouldn't show that well (barren space, with a few scattered pieces of make shift furniture littered about). Either stage it a bit or take everything out, people.
The location is in the northern reaches of Norwood above Gun Hill Road and just south of Woodlawn Cemetery. You'd probably be in the Gun Hill Road retail loop, and maybe a bit in the Jerome Avenue BID. You'd still have reasonable proximity to the Botanical Garden. Montefiore Hospital up on Gun Hill and Bainbridge is a pretty good neighbor. Williamsbridge Oval provides a green respite across Gun Hill Road. A recently discovered amenity in this neck of the woods is a bad-ass gym-cum-health-club-cum-spa-ish-place called Soma. Rumor has it that Soma has some dynamite new spin instructors.
Transportation isn't bad, with either the Woodlawn or Mosholu stations on the 4 train close by, and the last stop on D-train down on 205th. For the fancy pants commuters there's the Williamsbridge Metro-North station off of Webster Avenue and Gun Hill Road.
