If you can get comfortable with the idea of living on the ground floor of an apartment building, this new listing at 25 Plaza Street is worth a gander. While it’s being marketed as a two-bedroom, this place really deserves to be used as a roomy one-bedroom. There are plenty of vintage details, closets and built-ins but no photo of the kitchen (though the listing says it’s newly renovated). The monthly maintenance is $1,158 and the asking price is $729,000. There’s an open house on Saturday from 1-2:30.
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 one-bedroom co-op at 202 Baltic Street in Cobble Hill hit the market in September with an asking price of $625,000 and was reduced to $599,000 in October. The top-floor pad is attractive but lacks any particular wow factor other than the private roof deck, which looks great. The 660-square-foot unit comes with a monthly maintenance of $654. Like it?
This new listing in the Clinton Hill Co-ops is either a big one-bedroom or a small two-bedroom, depending on how you’d use the dining nook. Despite being on the second floor, the apartment seems bright and the kitchen has been modernized (though not exactly lavishly). The maintenance is $837 and the asking price is $399,000.
Hot stuff! The penthouse at 24 Monroe Place is pretty darn impressive, with a massive wrap-around terrace complementing the Classic Six layout. In addition to the killer views, this place has a great prewar pedigree and lots of entertaining space. Only thing not to like: The $4,770 monthly maintenance. Asking price is $2,395,000.
This 1,200-square-foot one-bedroom co-op in Brooklyn Heights just hit the market last week at $875,000. It has two bathrooms and a long office that could serve as a second bedroom, except that it doesn’t have any windows. The kitchen looks very modern with its dark wood cabinets and fridge, wine cooler and Jenn-Air stove built into a dark granite island. There’s more than enough space in the living area for a dining room table, couch and coffee table, and the apartment has plenty of storage with six closets. It also comes with a deeded storage cage. The common charges are $1,289 per month. Do you think this will sell at ask?
This charming two-bedroom floor-through co-op at 446 5th Street in Park Slope hit the market earlier this month with an asking price of $697,000. It’s in great shape, having undergone a recent renovation, and is intelligently laid out. You’ve got all your classic brownstone touches like the fireplace, wood floors and plaster moldings. The kitchen, with its exposed beams and big country sink, is well done too. You like?
The sunken living room gives this one-bedroom listing some Austin Powers sex appeal while the address — 160 Columbia Heights — is about as old-school as they come. Steps from the promenade, the location is hard to beat but some apartment shoppers might find the $1,245 maintenance a bit of a turnoff for a building that has only a part-time doorman. Overall, nice looking apartment though! Asking price: $685,000.
This new listing at 1 Plaza Street West is in a lovely building with great views over Prospect Park but the seller isn’t doing him or herself any favors with the poor photo quality! Regardless, we expect the prewar one-bedroom co-op will still get lots of looks. The maintenance is $1,132 and the asking price is $640,000.
Dying to live in a townhouse in Park Slope but don’t have enough scratch? This floor-and-a-half co-op at 19 Prospect Park West may be just the thing. The three-bedroom pad has lots of original detail in addition to views of the park. There’s no doorman, but that’s why the maintenance on the 1,500(ish)-square-foot place is just $1,333 a month. The asking price is $1,750,000. At one time you could have compared that to buying a whole house in Fort Greene or Clinton Hill but no more.
This new one-bedroom listing at 60 Plaza Street in Prospect Heights looks like a good value to us. It’s nothing fancy but it is a good-sized co-op with some prewar details and a sensible layout in a very nice location for $450,000. In this market that should be enough for a quick sale, we imagine.
Here’s a chance to own an unusual apartment on the top floor of a brownstone in the middle of Fort Greene. This two-bedroom co-op at 28 South Oxford Street isn’t huge but it has some nice architectural touches — old floors, new skylights — and a private roofdeck with great views. That said, it’s a walkup and the bedrooms are on the small side. The asking price is $700,000, which is in line with — or possible even cheaper than — what a whole brownstone would cost in this location.
