This one-bedroom Fort Greene co-op is attractive and has ample space, a renovated kitchen and a private entrance with a front garden. It’s on the first floor of the Griffin, a 1931 building with 204 units, at 101 Lafayette Avenue.
To get the biggest negative out of the way: nobody’s going to call it light-flooded. The only sources of sunlight are a sliver of a kitchen window and a glassed door and window in the bedroom. Consider that said glassed door faces the street and that one might well want to cover it for privacy and the picture gets darker still.
That aside, it’s a nice looking unit, with beamed ceilings, original moldings and new wood floors.
The bedroom is good sized, and separated from the living room by frosted-glass sliding doors. It lacks a closet, but there are large ones in the living room and foyer, which also sports a wall of built-in bookshelves.
The kitchen’s a nice one, with beige shaker-style cabinetry, black granite countertops, a tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave.
The building has no board interview and a “liberal sublet policy,” which potentially means one could buy it as an investment. There’s a 24-hour doorman, a live-in super, laundry room, and storage units available. The Barclays Center, BAM and Atlantic Terminal are a short walk.
Listed by Rory Bolger and Beth Readlinger of Citi Habitats, the unit’s asking $699,000; maintenance is $837 a month. Like it?
