This two-bedroom unit offers a distinctive space, with multiple tiers, high, angled ceilings, and jutting exposed girders. It's on the top floor of a converted schoolhouse, at 174 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill.
This attractive co-op on the top floor of a prewar Flatbush building offers a good deal of space and light from four exposures.
If you pay taxes on a condo or co-op in this city, you may feel like you’re getting screwed. NYC has a bafflingly complicated property tax structure that’s inherently unfair to co-op and condo owners. And the city knows it.
Which is why they created the co-op and condo tax abatement. Taking advantage of this break can shave hundreds to thousands of dollars a year off of a condo owner or co-op shareholder’s tax bills. Here’s how.
This three-bedroom co-op, at 478 3rd Street in the center of Park Slope, has a sensible layout and some nice detail, most notably a large amount of original unpainted woodwork, which lends the place a calm, homey feel. The unit looks to be in fine shape as well.
None of the rooms are huge, but the living spaces are decent-sized, with a spacious foyer and a separate dining room and living room. The latter features a trio of bay windows and an oversized pier mirror with a bench in that lovely natural wood. The former has a decorative mantel with another mirror and some built-in glassed cabinetry.
This two-bedroom co-op in Boerum Hill has a lot going for it, including a pretty gentle price tag. Located in a 25-unit building at 251 Pacific Street, it’s got light, nice finishes and good-sized common spaces, including a dining room.
It’s not loaded with detail, but it’s got nice moldings and a prewar feel.
It’s also got a few drawbacks, so we’ll get those out of the way. Bedrooms are small. There’s a single bathroom and it’s located by the front door, a relative hike from the bedrooms. The block it’s on is definitely not Boerum Hill’s most charming.
If someone wanted to build a 40-story skyscraper right outside your window, would you be as riled as the residents of 101 Clark Street?
This three-bedroom Park Slope co-op is nicely appointed, and offers a sensible layout with room for a family. Situated at 404 6th Avenue between 7th and 8th streets, it’s got some original details, including tin ceilings and the huge carved pier mirror in the living room.
This two-bedroom co-op at 1 Plaza Street West is attractive and well laid out, but its most spectacular attribute has to be its location.
This third-floor walkup duplex at 459 12th Street in the South Slope has what you want in a loft: towering ceilings, cavernous spaces and giant windows. If you’re down on exposed brick, though, this isn’t the place for you — it’s dominated by a massive wall of it.
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.
