A two-bedroom one-bath with a washer/dryer and a fireplace in a prewar elevator building with a live-in superintendent. Lisa Chajet, Claire Groome, Warburg Realty; warburgrealty.com
PROS The bedrooms are sunny and large. Original prewar details including the wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, wood doors and decorative moldings add charm.
CONS The kitchen and a picture window in the living room look out at an interior courtyard. The kitchen lacks counter space. The co-op requires 50 percent down. There is a $65 a month oil surcharge through the end of the year.
