Brooklyn Heights Co-op For Sale -- 35 Pierrepont Street

Today’s co-op is a stately four-bedroom, three-bath unit on a prime Brooklyn Heights block. Located at 35 Pierrepont Street, it’s a classic seven in form, and it’s classic in the general sense of the word as well, with understated prewar elegance.

Listed by Karen Heyman at Sotheby’s, the place has a fair amount to offer. It’s fully renovated and, unless trick photography has been brought into play, in excellent condition. It’s got nice spaces, a functional layout, good proportions, and light from three exposures. (more…)


Before us today is a one-bedroom loft at 423 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, known to some as the Ex-Lax Building. As you’d want from a loft in a converted industrial building, it’s got high ceilings and large open spaces, which can be yours for $845,000.

There’s a single bedroom, generous at 15 by 11 feet. The rest of it is open — a large living/dining space with a wall of built-in shelves and cabinets, and a walk-in storage closet in one corner. Light comes only from one end, but windows are oversized, and we’re partial to those arched ones at the top. (more…)


Today’s pick is a Cobble Hill co-op that comprises two combined apartments. Located at 220 Congress Street, in a 1952 building, the resulting unit has two bedrooms and two baths.

If if’s prewar charm you’re after, you won’t find it here. But the place has a fair number of pluses. It’s got exposures on three sides, for starters, and is on the top and sixth floor, so we’d expect views and light. The kitchen is attractive and recently renovated, and in general the whole place looks to be in top shape.

The unit also has a lot of built in shelving, a plus for many, and tons of closet space, including a wall of pantry storage in the kitchen. The bedrooms are ample sized, and the master has both a dressing area and a sitting area with a wet bar (aka the former site of that unit’s kitchen). (more…)


This one-bedroom co-op at 24 Monroe Place in Brooklyn Heights has a classic, elegant look. It’s got picture rail moldings and oak parquet floors that look to be in fine shape.

It all looks to be in fine shape, actually. That includes the kitchen, which looks tiny, but is nicely renovated. There’s no picture of the bathroom, but the listing promises that it’s been “elegantly restored to its original luster.”

The place isn’t gigantic at 630 square feet, but the living room and bedroom are reasonably sized. And they appear to get a fair amount of light. (It’s on a high floor, and a sliver of skyline can apparently be seen from the bedroom window.) (more…)


This Caton Park co-op at 5 Stratford Road sits right across the street from the Prospect Park Parade Grounds, at the corner of Caton Avenue. There’s a limited amount of information in both the writeup and the pictures — we’d like to see a few more photos, plus a floor plan — but that window-lined living room looks mighty appealing.

We spy some nice details as well, like the decorative baseboards and the picture rail moldings. (more…)


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?

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.
