55-seventh-ave-1-052215

This North Slope two-bedroom co-op, at 55 7th Avenue, is loaded with lovely details — most notably a floor-to-ceiling stained glass window that makes quite the living-room showpiece. Other eye-catchers include crown moldings, ceiling medallions, bay windows and a giant pier mirror in the master bedroom, hardwood floors with walnut inlay and a decorative fireplace with a marble mantel.

The second bedroom is cramped, but it’ll work fine for a kid’s room, and there’s an alcove off the spacious, open-concept living room that could serve as an office space. There’s also a small wooden balcony in the back, with doors leading from the bedrooms. Only one bathroom, and it doesn’t look palatial. (more…)

This bright one-bedroom has a lot going for it. Sweeping views of the harbor and Manhattan skyline are an obvious selling point, and it’s situated in a lovely prewar building on one of Brooklyn Heights’ choicest blocks. At 700 square feet it’s not huge, but the bedroom and living room are reasonably sized, and the maintenance is a relatively gentle $703 a month. (more…)

325 Marine Avenue1

This two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in Bay Ridge has a nice open plan, plenty of built in storage and a recently renovated kitchen. It has hardwood floors and a bar with a wine fridge too.

The apartment, at 325 Marine Avenue, is between 3rd and 4th avenues and short walk from the 95th street R stop and from the waterfront Shore Park.

The asking price is $355,000 with common charges of $750 a month. It’s a far cry from Williamsburg pricing for a two-bedroom. What do you think?

192-Clinton-Street-1-4-21-15

This two-bedroom, one-bath co-op occupies the entire fourth floor of a Cobble Hill brownstone and has many charming details to boot. There are parquet floors, original shutters, a wood-burning fireplace, and a dining room.

The kitchen is new and features modern, high end appliances. It is distinct from the living room but not enclosed, and is quite spacious.

One possible deal breaker: The bathroom and second bedroom can be accessed only through the master bedroom. Perhaps the latter would work best as a home office or baby room.

What do you think of the apartment and its ask of $1,250,000?

222 clinton street cobble hill 32015

This new listing at 222 Clinton Street in Cobble Hill ain’t your typical brownstone apartment. The upper duplex sports a living room with double-height ceilings and the place has a plethora of skylights. The three-bedroom pad also sports a master suite that’s larger than what you’d typically expect. Maintenance on the 1,600-square-foot pad is just $1,065, but the asking price is a lofty $2,250,000. Thoughts?

125 prospect place prospect heights 32015

We’re not in love with some of the design choices, but this brownstone duplex at 125 Prospect Place offers a fair amount of space — almost 1,900 square feet — for the price of $1,350,000. The only catch is that much of it is on the cellar level and therefore windowless. No need for cabin fever though — the two-bedroom apartment comes with the garden. The garden floor has retained some of its original charm too. Waddya think?

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.

This super-charming North Heights co-op just hit the market asking $1,400,000. The three-bedroom duplex at 80 Poplar Street has beautiful exposed wood joists as well as lots of exposed brick. There are two working fireplaces and lots of built-ins in the 1830s house as well as a shared bluestone terrace and some private deck space. The maintenance is $1,430. Do you like it?

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?
