Listing of the Day: Norwood Co-op

3520 Tryon Avenue #702, 1 Bedroom - $110,000

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.

I actually went to see this when I was looking at apartments last year. I was not very impressed. It wasn't in horrible shape but there was no wowness to it either. The kitchen was very basic but the eat in kitchen area was nice since most other places in the price range don't have that. I did notice an odd smell when I came into the building that was a bit of a turnoff. It's on the top floor but the view isnt that spectacular. They do allow dogs which is a definite plus since most places dont. The bathroom was simple and the bedroom was a bit small. But it's nice it came down in price. I see on Listingbook.com that it's in contract now.
