Turtle Bay Co-op • $699,000 • MANHATTAN • 235 East 49th Street, No. 1H

A roughly 500-square-foot studio with a built-in Murphy bed and a lofted sleeping area, in a doorman building that was once a seminary. Sergio Episcopo, 561-329-6948, and Tara King-Brown, 917-371-0551, Corcoran;

MAINTENANCE $1,217 a month

PROS A recent renovation with a Scandinavian sense of economy added clever storage compartments throughout the space. Roughly 13.5-foot ceilings provide clearance for a lofted guest bed.

CONS The windows are large, but face a nearby apartment building that limits direct sunlight.
