Twice the space for half the price! (Windows not included.)
When Darren Orlando stopped in at the open house for a Charlton Street triplex in September, he first thought, No way. After all, he was trying to find a place that would live up to the bright, airy Tribeca loft he’d just sold. This property was dark, its kitchen “pieced together,” to put it mildly. Worse, the living room was on the undesirable ground floor, and its lowest level—two floors down—had six-foot ceilings, barely tall enough for Orlando to walk through without knocking himself out cold. Still, within weeks, he bought it for $1.73 million.
