135 eastern parkway prospect heights 22015

Here’s a new listing we don’t think will take very long to sell: A two-bedroom on the top floor of Turner Towers. There are two good-sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms in addition to a living room, kitchen and foyer. The prewar bones are there too, as are the awesome views. The maintenance is $1,536 a month and the asking price is $1,100,000. No exact square footage is given but we’re guesstimating it comes out to about $1,000 a square foot.

90 remsen street brooklyn heights 22015

Brooklyn Heights doesn’t get much more prime than Remsen Street, where this townhouse duplex just hit the market with a price tag of $2,675,000. The three-bedroom pad has plenty of prewar detail in addition to an updated kitchen, central air and a private roof deck. On top of that, the building’s 25-foot width gives this place a generosity of space usually lacking in carved-up townhouses.

154 lafayette avenue fort greene 22015

Ground floors of townhouses typically have low ceilings, and this co-op listing at 154 Lafayette is no exception. The current owners seem to have made the most of the situation, though, with a bright and modern-leaning renovation. Any sense of cabin fever will also be alleviated by the private garden space out back. The owners have also done a nice job on the big media room in the basement, which sports some nice original brick arches and adds another 500 square feet to the 900-square-foot main floor for a total of 1,400. The maintenance is $800 and asking price is $1,295,000.

35 pierrepont street brooklyn heights 2 12015

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op at 35 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights just hit the market with an asking price of $1,599,000. It’s been recently renovated and has lots of prewar charm. Some potential buyers may not be thrilled to learn this place is on the second floor, but otherwise we can’t see anything to grouse about.

26 south oxford street fort greene 12015

26 South Oxford Street must have been quite a pad when it was originally built. The limestone facade is beautiful indeed. It’s a little less impressive on the inside these days, where the former mansion has been divided into apartments. A garden floor duplex has just come on the market asking $1,150,000.

The lower level faces the rear (and thus benefits from a private garden) while the garden level faces the street. While the lower level has been gut renovated, the garden floor still has enough original detail to conjure an old-world vibe. What do you make of the pricing?

9 prospect park west park slope 12015

The owners of this sixth-floor co-op at 9 Prospect Park West have been trying to unload the three-bedroom pad for some time now. They originally had it on the market for $1,800,000 in 2011 and then again for $1,525,000 in 2013 — no takers either time. Now the 1,800-square-foot apartment is back, with a new-and-improved asking price of $1,935,000. It’s a lovely place with lots of prewar details and nice light and views. The layout seems slightly suboptimal to us and the place could use an extra WC accessible by guests. The monthly maintenance is $2,090.

60 pineapple street brooklyn heights 12015

This new listing at 60 Pineapple Street caught our eye because of the price-per-square-foot metrics: 1,050 square feet in Brooklyn Heights for $599,000 these days is a good bang for the buck, even if it is below grade. The layout is kinda railroady too, with no actual spot for a real bedroom in the current configuration. Maintenance is $1,106 a month. In summary: Not a very compelling apartment but the price can’t be beat for the area.

40 prospect park west park slope 12015

It seems like a bit of a stretch to call it a four-bedroom, but this fourth-floor co-op at 40 Prospect Park West in Park Slope is a big prewar pad with park views priced at well under $1,000 a foot. That ain’t bad in this market. The 1,850-square-foot apartment is asking $1,695,000. The maintenance is $2,524 a month.

62 montague street brooklyn heights 12015

This three-bedroom co-op at 62 Montague in Brooklyn Heights just hit the market with a price tag of $2,750,000. The 1,950-square-foot pad is a little too “done” for our taste, but everything looks to be top-notch and there are still plenty of prewar touches that make this a special place, most notably the round windowed nook at the end of the living room. Totally cool. Thoughts on value?

456 prospect avenue windsor terrace 12015

If you can deal with the railroad configuration, this top-floor four-room co-op at 456 Prospect Avenue in Windsor Terrace has a lot going for it. There’s lots of light, a decent amount of original detail and a private roof deck. The kitchen’s also just been redone. At $540, the monthly maintenance is very reasonable. What do you think about the $699,000 asking price?

35 pierrepont street brooklyn heights 12015

This cute co-op at 35 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights has been on the market since the middle of November with an unflinching asking price of $1,200,000. The two-bedroom pad has plenty of prewar details and a charming rear view over the gardens of neighboring brownstones. At $1,422 a month, the maintenance ain’t bad for a full-service building. The ask of $1,200,000 is a big step up from the $760,000 sales price back in 2010 — but that was the bottom of the market and the place has been renovated since.
