We’re digging the look and feel of this new listing at 240 Prospect Place between Vanderbilt and Underhill in Prospect Heights. The two-bedroom pad has lovely prewar details and appears to be in very good shape. It’s got great light and windows on two sides (and technically windows on all four sides). The maintenance is $895 a month and the asking price is $699,000. We bet this’ll go pretty fast.

Through the window at 83 Saratoga we saw a big room with a sanded wood floor and doors to two bathrooms. In 2012, a permit was filed for minor alterations to the interior. The building, located […]
