10 plaza street east prospect heights 112014

This two-bedroom co-op at 10 Plaza Street that just hit the market asking $999,000 has a sensible and generous layout as well as a private terrace with a view of Grand Army Plaza. The corner location also sports lots of windows and light as well as two full bathrooms. Very solid. The monthly maintenance on the 1,200-square-foot pad is $1,160.

39 remsen street brooklyn heights 112014

This new listing at 39 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights looks like a floor-through of a brownstone but it’s actually only half the width of a larger building. Just a block from the promenade, the location can’t be matched and there are lots of beautiful original details in the front and back rooms.

The middle, where a marble entry and new kitchen have been constructed, is not as compelling to us. In particular, the kitchen detailing (the floor tiles and the style of subway tiles) feel a little out of place.

But if you can afford the asking price of $2,875,000, chances are you can afford to tweak the kitchen to your liking. Otherwise, the scale and historic nature of the place are amazing.

917 president street park slope 112014

This parlor-level floor-through apartment at 917 President Street in Park Slope just hit the market with a price tag of $1,495,000. That’s a princely sum for a single floor but the apartment is in a primo location and benefits greatly from a generous rear addition that accommodates a kitchen, a bathroom and an extra bedroom. The place is in beautiful shape and comes with lots of architectural detail.

1212 ocean avenue kensington 112014

This two-bedroom co-op at 1212 Ocean Avenue in Flatbush doesn’t photograph well but that’s a good thing for buyers with a little vision. Beyond the clutter and flash lighting we see lots of prewar details and a lot of square footage (1,250) for the price ($285,000). In case you haven’t been following, $228 a foot for a prewar apartment is hard to find! Strong buy.

542 9th street park slope 112014

This lower duplex at 542 9th Street in Park Slope just hit the market with an asking price of $1,950,000. There is some nice historic detail and the unit comes with a private garden. On top of that, both floors have an extension, which means a more generous layout than your standard brownstone. The place feels a little shabby to us, but nothing that a new owner couldn’t spiff up without much trouble. And, don’t forget, it’s less than a block from Prospect Park.

382 prospect place prospect heights 112014

No one’s going to accuse this two-bedroom at 382 Prospect Place of being too large but the cozy pad has been recently renovated and appears to have nice natural light. The layout’s a little wonky — with two 45-degree-angled walls and access to the second bedroom through the kitchen — and there’s only one bathroom. The square footage is not provided but we can’t see how it’s more than 500 square feet. The ask is $525,000, which seems high in our book given the size, although it is just west of Washington Avenue.

415 ocean parkway kensington 112014

If you’re looking for an affordable prewar two-bedroom in Brooklyn you’re unlikely to find a better value than this place at 415 Ocean Parkway in Kensington. The pleasingly rectilinear floor plan includes an eat-in kitchen, dining area, and two bathrooms in addition to the two bedrooms. The 1,150-square-foot pad has a monthly maintenance of $999 and an asking price of $599,000. Sound like a deal?

135 clinton avenue clinton hill 112014

This new listing at 135 Clinton Avenue is worth a look. The two-bedroom co-op takes up the top floor of a 25-foot-wide townhouse in Clinton Hill and comes with its own private roof deck. The interiors have lots of historic detail and the monthly maintenance of $1,056 shouldn’t break the bank. The asking price is $750,000. We bet they’ll get it.

574 44th street sunset park 112014

We love these Sunset Park Finnish co-ops and this one looks pristine. We dig the long wall of windows that stretch across the living and dining rooms. This apartment seems to have most of its original teens-era details, including moldings, closet doors that have never been painted, and a few original light fixtures. Only thing is, most of the Finnish co-ops are tiny. This one looks roomier than most, with a living room, dining room, and two real bedrooms. The ask is $387,000 and the maintenance is $518. What do you think of it?

66 montague street brooklyn heights 102014

This two-bedroom co-op at 66 Montague hit the market last week. It’s a charming apartment in a prewar mansion a stone’s throw from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Lots of prewar detail, good windows and ceiling height, and a so-so kitchen. Monthly maintenance for the 1,000-square-foot pad is $1,400 and the asking price is $975,000.

490 2nd street park slope 102014

This floor-through apartment at 490 2nd Street in Park Slope just hit the market with an asking price of $999,000. The one-bedroom pad has been attractively renovated. It’s currently configured as a one-bedroom but you could definitely squeeze a second bedroom into the back of the unit. And don’t forget this bonus: There’s a private roof deck that needs work but is big. Waddya think?

61 Pierrepont combo

A large prewar apartment in Brooklyn Heights for not much more than $1,000 a square foot is worth a close look. This 2,840-square-foot five-bedroom pad, a result of combining two adjacent apartments, at 61 Pierrepont Street has lots of prewar charm and appears to be in good shape too.

And as a bonus, there’s a private parking spot that comes with the apartment and is included in the maintenance. The ask is $2,950,000 and the monthly maintenance is $3,536. Think this will go fast?
