APARTMENT NO. 3
56 Morton Street
Brokers: Anthony Dellecave (above) and listing broker Ehud Eliasi, both of Citi Habitats.
Apartment: Two-bedroom third-floor walk-up; $2,500–$2,600.
WHAT THE BROKER SAYS:
“The search was a little tougher than I expected because they were looking for a two-bedroom for less than $3,000, but they were awesome and responsive to all my e-mails. I saw a lot of places that were dark and small, nothing that I felt comfortable putting a couple and a child in, but this one was a great find.”
WHAT THE CLIENTS LIKED:
Christine: “The kitchen’s nice and clean—there’s counter space. The master bedroom’s big enough for my drafting table. It feels like a real home, this one. I like this area—it’s quieter. Where we are now is noisy at night. We hear the college students screaming for world peace, and I support that, but . . . ”
Andrew: “I like it. I like it quite a bit.”
Christine: “It’s got a nice charm to it. As soon as I saw the façade outside, my heart started beating.”
Andrew: “What I really like is that Josie would have a room of her own. And we’d have a nice-size one. But the price is ‘to be determined’?”
WHAT THEY DIDN’T:
Christine: “I love it—but there’s no tub! I’m bummed about the tub! It may seem so minimal to someone else, but Josie loves baths.”
Andrew: “Sooner or later she’s going to have to learn to take a shower, right?”
Christine: “The living room has no place for a dining table, and there’s no place to put it in the kitchen. We’d have to eat Japanese style.”
