This large one-bedroom co-op at The Griffin in Fort Greene just hit the market with an asking price of $749,000. It’s a nice apartment on the eighth floor with good light and views as well as solid prewar credentials. We’d guess that this would have to be some kind of price record for a one-bedroom in this building if it ends up selling at or near ask. A large one-bedroom on the tenth floor sold a year ago for $659,000.

If you’re the kind of person who fantasizes about sitting in front of a fireplace in your wood-paneled living room, you’ll want to pay attention to this one. This floor-through one-bedroom at 42 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights has just hit the market with an asking price of $730,000. In addition to the old-school vibe, it’s also got a private deck off the back and a not-so-hot maintenance of $1,480 a month.

You’re definitely paying for the views with this new listing at 214 Columbia Heights — but then again, the views are worth paying for. The two-bedroom floor-through apartment overlooks the promenade in Brooklyn Heights and has the kind of vintage vibe you’d expect from a house in this location. The maintenance is $1,250 and the asking price is $1,500,000.

This two-bedroom, two-bath loft space in the Eagle Warehouse in Dumbo seems like a lot of space for the money. There’s a 45-foot-long living/dining space and a bonus home office or storage space. Altogether, it’s 1,787 square feet, according to the listing. The ask is $1,399,000. What do you think of it?

This two-bedroom co-op at 2 Grace Court in Brooklyn Heights looks cheery and well laid-out. The sixth-floor apartment has prewar details and a renovated kitchen along with nice light and views.

There’s only one bathroom, but it’s sensibly located. The asking price is $885,000, and there’s an open house on Saturday at 2 and Sunday at noon.

This parlor-floor apartment at 8 Sidney Place in Brooklyn Heights is bigger than most, which allows for a decent-sized, walk-through kitchen in the middle of the apartment rather than one in a small alcove. There’s also a small second bedroom in an addition where it doesn’t eat up valuable living room real estate. However, access is through the master bedroom. The asking price for the 1,100-square-foot co-op is $1,100,000, which doesn’t seem out of line with market rates in this blue chip ‘hood.

This lovely listing at 125 Prospect Park West just hit the market with an asking price of $1,050,000. It’s currently configured as a two-bedroom with separate formal living and dining rooms so it could be a three-bedroom if so desired. The only drawback is that there’s only one bathroom. The prewar pad has lots of original details and appears to be in great shape.

Here’s a big two-bedroom co-op at the Park Towers in Kensington for $449,000. In addition to plenty of space (31-foot-long living room!), this place has an eat-in kitchen and a private terrace with amazing views south and west; all that’s missing is a second bathroom. And while the kitchen isn’t going to show up in a design magazine anytime soon, the apartment has been renovated recently and looks to be in good shape.

Here’s a cute prewar pad on a charming block of Prospect Heights. The floor-through apartment has some attractive prewar details and nice-sized living areas but the railroad-y configuration makes the two-bedroom set-up sub-optimal.

It could be a problem easily solved, though, by extending the hallway to the master bedroom, which would reduce the size of the smaller bedroom to about 9 feet by 9 feet. The maintenance is $720 a month and the asking price is $765,000.

Here’s a refreshingly priced pad with park views that’s been on the market for less than a month. The two-bedroom, two-bath co-op at 185 Prospect Park Southwest has 1,300 square feet and has been recently renovated. What’s more, it has a private terrace that looks out over the park. Common charges are $1,017 and the seller is asking $725,000. Waddya think?

This new listing at 134 Lincoln Place has the layout you’d expect from a brownstone floor-through apartment — kitchen and living up front with a big bedroom and a small bedroom in the back. This one’s also got a bay window and a working fireplace. We wouldn’t mind seeing some crown moldings but overall the apartment has a traditional feel (though we doubt that fireplace is original). Asking price: $739,000. Maintenance: $952.
