Co-op of the Day: 299 Henry Street, #2B

This three-bedroom co-op at 299 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights just hit the market with an asking price of $950,000. Our favorite aspect of the floor-through apartment is the trio of original casement windows at the rear. Otherwise, the unit is in good shape but lacking in the kind of original charm we’d want to see if we were buying a brownstone apartment. The common roofdeck is a nice bonus though.

  • Not sure why they’re calling this a brownstone.

  • What’s the maintenance on this? I cant tell from either the Brownstoner listing or the BHS site.

  • Seriously BHS? You’re going to try to hide the common charges? Don’t you think that might be a crucial bit of information? This is like those Craigslist postings with no asking price. It’s just a waste of my time.I guess we can assume it’s pretty damn high if they went out of their way to omit it.

    As for the apartment, I think it’s lovely. I also love the casement windows. But personally, I would prefer a little private outdoor space at this price range. Especially if I’m going to end up paying an extra 2k a month in maintenance.

    • I spoke with the broker about this apartment, and it is actually not a high maintenance–$1375. However, she said that there will be a slight increase in the common charges after the upcoming board meeting. BHS doesn’t want to post the new maintenance until it is approved by the board. Likewise, they didn’t want to list the current maintenance charge because it is going to change.

  • workerb–there is a private deck. Look at the floorplan. still overpriced, and the maintenance has got to be way high if they are not posting it. and perhaps difficult to finance, not only because of high maintenance but also because it is a small coop.

  • A 2nd floor walk-up with one bath for 950K?! Great view of LICH from the walk up to the roof.
