Two renovated prewar condos, just one floor apart, with identical square footage. Why the $122,037 disparity in price? The upstairs apartment has better bathroom fixtures and a little more light, but that’s not really the difference. The secret is this: Apartment 76 has butterscotch-finished maple cupboards and matching new hand-cut white-oak inlaid floors. (Apartment 66 has refinished original floors, and perfectly okay white-painted cabinets.) “The darker cabinets go better with the rest of the apartment,” says listing broker Sabrina Seidner. Adds co-broker Susan Davis Eley: “These floors are not prefab … You don’t buy these by the sheet from Home Depot.”
