Here’s a big two-bedroom co-op at the Park Towers in Kensington for $449,000. In addition to plenty of space (31-foot-long living room!), this place has an eat-in kitchen and a private terrace with amazing views south and west; all that’s missing is a second bathroom. And while the kitchen isn’t going to show up in a design magazine anytime soon, the apartment has been renovated recently and looks to be in good shape.
Here’s a cute prewar pad on a charming block of Prospect Heights. The floor-through apartment has some attractive prewar details and nice-sized living areas but the railroad-y configuration makes the two-bedroom set-up sub-optimal.
It could be a problem easily solved, though, by extending the hallway to the master bedroom, which would reduce the size of the smaller bedroom to about 9 feet by 9 feet. The maintenance is $720 a month and the asking price is $765,000.
Here’s a refreshingly priced pad with park views that’s been on the market for less than a month. The two-bedroom, two-bath co-op at 185 Prospect Park Southwest has 1,300 square feet and has been recently renovated. What’s more, it has a private terrace that looks out over the park. Common charges are $1,017 and the seller is asking $725,000. Waddya think?
Bed Stuy’s The Shelton, an affordable co-op building that launched sales in 2012, is now 90 percent sold, according to a press release. The 14-story building at 775 Lafayette Avenue between Throop Avenue and Marcus Garvey Boulevard still has four units available, all two-bedroom, two-bath units, starting at $424,500.
There is no lottery for the co-op units, but purchasers cannot have incomes exceeding $145,250 per household.
Thirty percent of the units in the 83-unit building were sold through a lottery process in 2012. The middle-income co-op units range from one-bedrooms to three-bedrooms. The units have oak floors, granite and Caesarstone counters, and washers and dryers. The building has a part time doorman, gym, bike storage and underground parking. St. Philip’s Christian Church owns community and office space in the building.
Developer TNS Development Group Ltd. contributed equity to the project. Funding came from Banco Popular North America, the New York City Housing Development Corporation (HDC), the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the New York State Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC) and The Housing Partnership Development Corporation (HDC).
This new listing at 134 Lincoln Place has the layout you’d expect from a brownstone floor-through apartment — kitchen and living up front with a big bedroom and a small bedroom in the back. This one’s also got a bay window and a working fireplace. We wouldn’t mind seeing some crown moldings but overall the apartment has a traditional feel (though we doubt that fireplace is original). Asking price: $739,000. Maintenance: $952.
This new listing at 174 Pacific sure is a handsome specimen. The high ceilings of the old school house’s ground floor are the defining feature of the two-bedroom co-op. This accommodates a huge wall of built-in shelving as well as a mezzanine sleeping area. We like how the kitchen was renovated too. Asking price is $1,500,000.
Dreams of Ditmas but those gingerbread houses are out of reach? Maybe this new co-op listing at 1701 Albemarle Road might fit the bill. The 1,310-square-foot pad has some solid prewar details (though the listing admits it could use some TLC) and a generous layout. The two-bedroom unit has a maintenance of $707 and the asking price is $649,000.
Like most apartments in Turner Towers, this new listing has a grand, spacious feel to it. While you could really squeeze four bedrooms out of this place, the current configuration includes only two. The living room and kitchen are both huge and most of the prewar details are intact. The only real knock on the space is that it’s on the third floor and the windows and light could be better. Asking price is $1,325,000.
Here’s a cute starter family apartment right on the Parade Grounds in Caton Park. The top-floor pad has two bedrooms along with lots of windows and lots of light–and a good deal of prewar charm to boot. The asking price is $439,000 and monthly maintenance is just $739. Pretty good, right?
This new listing at 90 Sterling Place just hit the market with an asking price of $985,000. It’s a floor-through apartment in a North Slope brownstone that manages to pack in three bedrooms — a sub-optimal configuration in our opinion but, given prices these days, a practical move. It’s got some nice original details (most notably a pair of marble fireplaces) but has undergone a renovation that leaves us a little limp.
Nothing major to complain about — just a bunch of small decisions not totally gelling, such as the recessed lighting in the kitchen, the exposed brick in the dining area, and the lack of crown molding in the living room. The place appears to be in good shape, though, and you gotta love the location.
Here’s a super-modern apartment atop a prewar building that has a certain wow factor. The two-bedroom co-op at 75 Livingston Street in Brooklyn Heights has incredible views along with a distinctive design. The apartment (which we are guessing is around 1,100 square feet) has been on the market for about a month. It’s not really configured for family living but would make a swanky bachelor(ette) pad for sure. Monthly maintenance is $1,993 and asking price is $1,375,000.
This new listing at 1119 Ocean Parkway isn’t the sexiest apartment in town but at $370,000 for 1,150 square feet it’s one of the better bangs for the buck on the market right now. In addition to two bedrooms, there’s a huge living/dining space, part of which could be annexed for a third bedroom, it looks like. The kitchen and bathroom are recently remodeled, but look a little drab to us nonetheless. The monthly maintenance is $760. What do you think of it?
