Here’s a swanky one-bedroom condo for rent in an unusual-looking (postmodernist?) building in Windsor Terrace. It’s so swanky that the spacious pad has two bathrooms and a glass-walled balcony with a grill. The kitchen also has a rolling island and there’s a washer/dryer. It’s six blocks from the F/G trains at Fort Hamilton Parkway and eight from 15th Street-Prospect Park station. It’s next to Green-Wood and less than mile from Prospect Park. Do you think someone will rent this for $2,650 a month?
We are excited to hear, courtesy of Kensington BK, that the long-in-the-works Windsor Terrace Food Co-op has signed a lease for a retail location. The address is 825 Caton Avenue, the lease is for five years — and as icing on the cake, it’s in a really cute old building. Click through to see how the spot looked in an old tax photo. Maybe they can bring it back!
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?
This very pretty apartment at 135 Prospect Park SW in Windsor Terrace has plenty of vintage charm and is also newly renovated by the sponsor. And because it is a sponsor unit, no board approval is required.
There’s no floor plan, but the listing says there are six rooms, so we presume this is a legit two-bedroom.
It’s a bit of a hike to the subway but right next to the park.
The maintenance is $627. Do you think it’s a decent deal for $825,000?
It’s less than two weeks until Christmas, and holiday markets are popping up all over Brooklyn. Besides the Brooklyn Flea at 1000 Dean Street, there are local craft markets happening in neighborhoods from Windsor Terrace to Greenpoint. Here’s an incomplete list of where you can find some interesting handmade items:
Holiday Crafts Fair and Christmas Tree Sale at Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, 3002 Fort Hamilton Parkway, Windsor Terrace, Saturday, December 13, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm Record Sale and Craft Fair at Bossa Nova Civic Club, 1271 Myrtle Avenue, Bushwick, Saturday, December 13, 5 pm to 10 pm Pop2 Brooklyn Holiday Market at 200 Livingston Street, Downtown Brooklyn, Saturday, December 13, 4 pm to 10 pm and Sunday, December 14, noon to 8 pm Brooklyn Pop-up Holiday Market at Bat Haus, 279 Starr Street, Bushwick, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas, Fridays 8 pm to 12 am, Saturdays and Sundays noon to 6 pm Hand Makers Holiday Market at Golden Drum, 97 Green Street, #G1, Greenpoint, Sunday, December 14, 1 pm to 8 pm Proteus Gowanus Holiday Fair at Proteus Gowanus, 543 Union Street, Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14, 12 pm to 6 pm Arts East New York Holiday Market at 170 New Lots Avenue, Saturdays and Sundays, December 13, 14, 20 and 21, 11 am to 7 pm

This Windsor Terrace teens two-family seems to have lots of lovely original details such as parquet floors, doors and stained glass. It’s also less than a block from Prospect Park.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a whole lot of space for an owner-occupant. Each apartment occupies one floor in what was originally a two-story single-family house. We’d estimate the two upper floors total about 1,500 square feet. (There’s also a lower level, which the floor plan calls the “garden floor,” but it doesn’t look too promising to us. The boiler is down there and much of it appears to be below grade.)
We’re thinking a new owner might want to convert the house back to the one-family it was originally. The listing indicates it will need work, since it says “please bring your contractor and dreams.”
If you’re looking a for a modern, recently renovated three-bedroom in Windsor Terrace, this apartment is worth a look for the location and the price. It has three bathrooms and a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and Carrara marble countertops.
At 1,050 square feet, it’s not huge, but it might work well for a small family. The living room and kitchen both look decently sized.
And it’s about five blocks from the 15th Street-Prospect Park F/G train stop and the park itself. Does it seem decent for $3,200 a month?
The outside of this rental is nothing to get excited about — it’s a Fedders special without the branded air conditioner covers — but it’s not too bad on the inside. The three-bedroom, two-bath apartment in Windsor Terrace has attractive diagonally placed floors and the bedrooms appear to be good sized (only one is pictured).
Plus, there’s a cute cat in the listing. We’re guessing this is the garden level, although the ad doesn’t specify. What do you think of it for $3,750 a month?
Listings and interior photos have gone up for the rentals at 33 Caton Place in Windsor Terrace, aka the Kestrel, where studios (pictured) start at $1,662 a month. Halstead lists nine apartments so far on the official website for the eight-story, 126-unit building, first noted by FIPS. One-bedrooms are priced from $2,215, and two-bedroom, two-baths range from $3,046 to $3,900. Sam Boymelgreen developed the project, and the architects are Luca Andrisani Architects and DJ Associates.
Apartments feature white oak flooring, washer/dryers, Ceasarstone countertops, and deep soaking tubs in the bathrooms. Amenities include a landscaped roof deck with private cabanas, gym, bike storage, parking garage and a pet spa. Check out more interiors after the jump!
Hopefully the third time’s the charm for Sam Boymelgreen’s The Kestrel, which was going to start leasing in April, then June, and now “the fall.”
One-bedrooms at 33 Caton Place will start at $2,300 a month, according to a story in The New York Times. Meanwhile, the Hudson Companies development across the street at 22 Caton Place, plan to finish up in the spring.
Construction is progressing at The Kestrel in Windsor Terrace, where the first windows are being installed. The 126-unit rental development at 33 Caton Place will include a mixture of studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms, and amenities like a gym and concierge service. DJ Associates Architect PC and Luca Andrisani Architects are designing the eight-story building, whose developer is Sam Boymelgreen. Leasing was supposed to begin this month, but given the construction progress, we’re guessing it won’t happen until the fall.
Meanwhile, four stories have risen across the street at 22 Caton Place. Hudson Companies is developing the seven-story, 73-unit building. Kiss+Cathcart Architects are designing it. It will be LEED Gold certified and feature an “articulated brick facade… with vine-covered balconies.”
We’ve included a construction photo of 22 Caton and a rendering after the jump.
