This new listing at Toren in Downtown Brooklyn is pretty striking. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad has a corner living room with expansive views of Flatbush Avenue and the Manhattan Bridge. High ceilings, a swanky master suite and sleek kitchen round out the offering. The asking price is $1,110,000, seemingly in line with the recent sale of a similarly sized two-bedroom on the 21st floor for $1,215,000.
This recently remodeled co-op at 185 Hall Street in Clinton Hill just hit the market with an asking price of $380,000. The one-bedroom pad is located across the street from Pratt and sports views of the adjacent tree tops. The maintenance is a reasonable $710 a month and the asking price is $380,000. Think they’ll get it?
While the furniture isn’t helping the sales cause, this new listing at 30 Main Street in Dumbo should have plenty of suitors. The big one-bedroom (plus windowless home office) has nearly 1,500 square feet of space and sports a generous master suite in addition to the large living/dining/kitchen area. The apartment doesn’t seem to have any views of Manhattan but the combination of high floor and southern exposure means there’s lots o’ light. Asking price: $1,649,000.
This new listing at One Brooklyn Bridge Park might be the nicest apartment we’ve seen in the waterfront building. (We’re not forgetting about the $32,000,000 penthouse but that’s sui generis and not really comparable.) This place has it all: four bedrooms, five bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, amazing views. This kind of place doesn’t come cheap though: Asking price is $7,950,000. Get out those checkbooks!
The high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows are the big selling points at this one-bedroom condo at 189 Schermerhorn Street (aka be@schermerhorn). The 15th-floor pad weighs in at only 662 square feet, though, making the asking price of $739,000 aggressive — especially when you consider that it traded for $425,000 in 2010. On the other hand, a 75 percent rise in value in four years isn’t out of line with a lot of other properties in the area. And those views sure are nice.
This two-bedroom at 560 State Street, aka Jay-Z’s former building, just hit the market with an asking price of $799,000. The building has some historic charm but the apartment itself has been stripped of anything even referencing its 19th-century roots. All that’s left is a generic white box of an apartment, albeit one located right next to the biggest transportation hub in Brooklyn (and the Barclays Center).The listing recognizes that the finishes are a little less than compelling but that therein lies the buying opportunity. Do you agree?
Personally we prefer our townhouses to feel a little older, but the newer look of this triplex at 584 Pacific Street is bound to appeal to someone’s sense of cleanliness and order. The 2,050-square-foot condo has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in addition to four terraces. The proximity to the Barclays Center might be a deterrent to some though, especially at the asking price of $2,200,000.
This new listing at 145 Prospect Park West is pretty basic as far as the apartment goes — no historic detail to speak of and middle-of-the-road finishes — but being on the park is definitely worth something as is the common roofdeck. Asking price on the two-bedroom, one-bathroom pad is $729,000 and the monthly common charges (including taxes) come to $619.
19 Grace Court is a charming prewar building at the end of dead-end street by the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. This third-floor two-bedroom is currently the only unit on the market; it’s got an asking price $875,000. It’s got nice light and is in good shape but only has one bathroom; what’s more, it appears that much of the original detail was lost in a recent renovation. Monthly maintenance is $998.
This new condo listing at 94 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights is a real looker. The two-level pad has lots of original detail and benefits greatly from having windows along the entire eastern side of the building. The 1,417-square-foot apartment has a separate dining room in addition to the living room at the front of the parlor floor; it’s also got a master suite on the second floor at the rear of the apartment. The asking price is $1,750,000 and it’s also available for rent for $7,500 a month.
This new listing at 261 Garfield Place in Park Slope has a great feel to it. Lots of prewar details, a really generous layout (being in a 32-foot-wide mansion helps) and lots of natural light. Great stuff. (more…)
As this listing shows, your real estate dollars will go a little further in Bay Ridge than in north or Brownstone Brooklyn. This 993-square-foot condo at 10002 4th Avenue is asking $675,000 — not bad for a new place with great light and views. There’s an open house this Sunday from 11:30 to 1.
