This first-floor co-op at 99 Berkeley Place in Park Slope just hit the market with an asking price of $1,395,000. The three-bedroom apartment is located in a beautiful building but (unfortunately) doesn’t have much original detail left. (Sweet front windows though.) The floor plan is larger than your typical floor-through apartment and it comes with a private back yard. The maintenance is a modest $850 a month.
Paging old house lovers! This new listing at 87 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights is dripping with original detail, including an impressive array of woodwork. There’s also a bay window and a private deck. The floor-through pad has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is asking $1,495,000. We’re guessing it’s about 1,200 square feet.
A prewar one-bedroom in good shape for $179,000? Do our eyes deceive us? Technically, this apartment is an alcove studio, but it functions like a one-bedroom because the sleeping area is in a separate (but windowless area) behind French doors. (more…)
Okay, so it seems we’re basically at the point where any apartment west of, say, Washington Avenue gets listed at around the $1,000-a-foot mark. This new listing at 34 Plaza Street East in Prospect Heights comes in just shy of that psychological hurdle, but we suspect that’s on purpose — kinda like pricing something in a store for $19.99. This two-bedroom co-op, which looks to be in nice shape (suspicious absence of a kitchen photo notwithstanding) with great light and views, has 1,325 square feet of living space and is asking $1,299,000. Think they’ll get it?
There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about this studio co-op at 35 Eastern Parkway other than the price. When was the last time you saw something within spitting distance of Grand Army Plaza with a price tag of $155,000? Our best guess is that it’s less than 400 square feet of space, but even if it were 300 square feet it would still look cheap, especially since it’s got a decent view and a kitchen that looks functional. What’s up with that?
This co-op listing at 1701 Albermarle Road is a charmer. The prewar one-bedroom sports original wood floors, two exposures and an attractively renovated kitchen. The listing also claims that the apartment is “blissfully quiet.” The maintenance is a low $511 per month and the asking price is $419,000. You like?
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?
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 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…)
We applaud the broker on this new listing at 30 Clinton Street for her honesty: “This prewar one bedroom coop apartment needs EVERYTHING. New walls, new floors, new fixtures, new appliances, and probably wiring and plumbing as well.” It’s a nice prewar building, though, and in a convenient Brooklyn Heights location. The asking price is $325,000.
We love the vibe of the apartments at the Ping Pong Factory at 110 Clifton Place. In particular, we dig the round concrete columns and big windows. There’s a second-floor two-bedroom that had been asking $900,000 currently in contract and this fourth-floor unit just hit the market with a price tag of $925,000. How do you think it stacks up against yesterday’s Grand Avenue listing we featured?
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.
