27 schermerhorn street brooklyn heights 82014

We wrote about the fourth-floor apartment at 27 Schermerhorn Street back in 2011 when it was asking $695,000. Now the top floor unit, which has been redone in a much more modern fashion, is on the market for $915,000. The brownstone floor-through co-op is 25 feet wide and 1,000 square feet in total. Monthly maintenance is $1,218. We’re usually not big fans of going modern in a brownstone but this renovation looks pretty successful to us.

1818 newkirk avenue ditmas park 82014

Here’s a spacious and lovely two-bedroom that just hit the market for $525,000 in Ditmas Park. The 1,050-square-foot pad was recently updated and features walk-in closets, built-in bookshelves, ceiling fans and a dishwasher. Both bedrooms are large, and the French doors help brighten up the living room, which doesn’t have any windows. The building also has a parking garage, shared garden, laundry and a part-time doorman. Maintenance is $705 a month. Do you think it’s a good deal?

Residents of the Lindsay Park Housing Cooperative in Williamsburg are petitioning to change the practices of the board of directors at one of the city’s largest middle-income housing co-ops according to a report by DNAinfo. They accuse the board of rigging elections, mismanagement and harassment. The petitioners, including the  Community Board 1 chairwoman, say the flawed election process has kept the board president in power for a dozen years. (more…)

99 berkeley place park slope 82014

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.

87 remsen street brooklyn heights 82014

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.

34 plaza street east prospect heights 82014

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?

35 eastern parkway prospect heights 82014

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?

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 brooklyn heights 72014

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.
