For less than a million dollars, you can find all sorts of apartment configurations: park- and subway-adjacent studios, one-bedrooms tucked away in carriage houses or former shoe factories, and even the occasional true two-bedroom. We comb the market for particularly spacious, nicely renovated, or otherwise worth-seeing apartments in a variety of six-figure price ranges.

We found you an Italian villa in the Bronx and a one-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side, just steps from Central Park.

2501 Palisade Avenue, #E3

The kitchen shown in the photo from the Villa Charlotte Brontë advertisement is the place where you will brew a cup of coffee to drink on the patio in the most romantic apartment complex in the city.

Don’t sleep in this rare one-bedroom at Villa Charlotte Brontë, a 17-apartment complex that looks like the cover of an Italian romance novel, except it’s in the Bronx. This apartment is located on the garden level, but still offers views of the Hudson River, a patio where you can enjoy coffee, and a wood-burning fireplace.

405 West 23rd Street, No. 12A

Yes, it’s a studio, but with all the built-in storage and beautiful finishes, you’ll hardly notice your bed is in the living room? The kitchen is narrow but equipped with Lacanche and Miele appliances, and the entire apartment has hand-finished reclaimed oak floors. Monthly pools cost $2,017, but being part of the London Terrace Towers co-op, you have access to a half-Olympic-sized heated pool and a sauna if you’re into semi-Olympic swimming.

40 West 72nd Street, No. 81B

Either keep all of the outdated carpets and furniture pictured in this one bedroom listing, or rip everything out and start over.

This Lincoln Square co-op is very dated, but there’s something charming about it. Maybe this is your aesthetic and it’s turnkey? Or you may need to tear out the carpets, change the curtains, and remove the molding (?) around the bathroom sink, but I recommend keeping the wallpaper in the kitchen, though probably not the cabinets. You can tell your friends, “Oh, you should have seen this place when I moved in!” Plus it’s only half a block from Central Park.

527 8th Street, No. 2A

The windows shown in the listing photo are where all the light comes from, but luckily they face south.

This apartment does a lot for the studio. There is a place for a bed that is slightly separated from the living area, and the windows face south, so you will have plenty of light. The building has a laundry room and storage hutch, which we expect you’ll need, and monthly maintenance costs just $552. This week’s topic is proximity to the park – it’s only half a block from Prospect Park.
