334 grand avenue clinton hill 62014

This listing, a two-bedroom at 334 Grand Avenue, shows a somewhat unusual apartment. Located in the same building as the Corridor Gallery, the 1,300-square-foot condo sports multiple skylights as well as private outdoor space. At $1,299,000, it’s certainly aggressively priced for the neighborhood based on interior square footage.

75 livingston street brooklyn heights 62014

We’ve always taken special notice of this building at 85 Livingston Street because it’s named after an ancestor of ours but have rarely had the chance to include it on Brownstoner. This third-floor one-bedroom at the Robert Livingston in Downtown Brooklyn is about as straight-ahead a one-bedroom as you’ll find: good-sized rooms, sensible layout, reasonable maintenance of $995. It ain’t particularly sexy though so check your ego at the door. Asking price is $475,000.

26 broadway williamsburg 62014

This condo at the Bridgeview Towers in Williamsburg just hit the market with an asking price of $750,000. That puts the price for the 793-square-foot pad below the $1,000-a-foot threshold — but not by much. The finishes are exactly what you’d expect from an upper-end condo in Williamsburg.

We like the windows and light in the living room but could do with a slightly bigger bedroom. What do you think?

1240 bedford avenue bed stuy 62014

An ask of $550,000 is pretty low these days for a two-bedroom, and this place at 1240 Bedford Avenue also comes with a small balcony as a bonus. Unfortunately, buying this apartment would also mean having to live in one of the uglier buildings to go up recently. Seriously, there’s no excuse for this kind of design, or lack thereof. No excuse at all.

70 berry street williamsburg 62014

This new listing at 70 Berry Street in Williamsburg is a large one-bedroom in a new(ish) modern building with modern finishes just a couple of blocks from McCarren Park and the Bedford L train. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room along with exposures on three side make for a very light and open feel.

The asking price for the 860-square-foot apartment is $995,000 and there’s another 11 years left on the building’s tax abatement.

9 college place brooklyn heights 62014

There’s plenty to recommend this top-floor unit at 9 College Place in Brooklyn Heights — location, size, outdoor space — but it’ll be interesting to see whether the 1,688-square-foot apartment can achieve its ambitious asking price of $2,675,000. After all, it’s only a two-bedroom we are talking about. Seems pretty pricey for a pad you’re going to have to move out of when the second kid is on the way.

155 lafayette avenue fort greene 62014

We’ve only featured a listing at 155 Lafayette Avenue one time in 10 years (yes, Brownstoner is about to turn 10), which seems surprising given its central Fort Greene location. This new listing at the prewar co-op is a nice one to be sure.

The ground-floor pad has 2,000 square feet of living space and features three bedrooms, a home office and private garden space; there’s also a large guest suite on the lower level. The apartment’s been recently renovated in a modern but attractive style.

The ask is $1,700,000 and the maintenance is $1,614.56.

185 plymouth street dumbo 62014

This new loft listing at 185 Plymouth Street in Dumbo is pretty impressive. The 3,275-square-foot condo has beautiful original details (namely wood columns and exposed brick walls) as well as some sleek modern touches in the kitchen and bathroom. The only negative we can see is that the living area fronts on what appears to be an interior courtyard. There seems to be plenty of light, though, so perhaps not a deal killer. Asking price is $4,400,000 and there’s an open house on Sunday from 12 to 1:30 pm.

118 8th avenue park slope 62014

This prewar two-bedroom at 118 8th Avenue just hit the market with an asking price of $995,000. The eighth-floor co-op has lovely light and windows and there’s a dining alcove off the kitchen. The apartment overall has a nice feel but that second bedroom is definitely on the small side. No precise square footage measurement is provided but we’re guessing this asking price is coming in at around $1,000 a foot.

891 bergen street crown heights 62014

We’re a little biased since the soon-to-open Berg’n Beer Hall is located across the street, but this top-floor two-bedroom at 892 Bergen Street looks like an interesting listing to us. The two-bedroom has incredible views that (thanks to the recent downzoning) will never be obstructed, floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony. The asking price is $749,000 and the common charges are $678. Going once, going twice…

192 water street dumbo 62014

Ground-floor apartments usually trade at a discount to their upper-floor brethren but there’s no such thing as deal in Dumbo these days. This first-floor unit at 192 Water Street is unusually well-situated though, with the entire apartment opening up onto a private yard. The finishes are lovely and there’s lots of old-world charm as well. Asking price for the 1,391-square-foot pad: $1,650,000.

2-northside-piers-williamsburg 62014

It takes some chutzpah to market a two-bedroom condo asking $1,569,000 as “affordable,” but that’s what they’re doing with this 18th-floor pad at 2 Northside Piers. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a big apartment (1,234 square feet) with great views and all — we just wouldn’t call it affordable! On a per-square-foot basis it’s pretty reasonably priced though. And with a 25-year tax abatement in place, the monthly common charges of $891 are quite low. We suspect this’ll move pretty quickly.
