It’s big, it’s beautiful and it’s a condo — in a landmarked brownstone. This fetching two-bed, two-bath sits at the top floor of a 25-foot-wide house at 214 Park Place in Prospect Heights. Fully renovated six years ago, it’s a nice unit in fine shape, with an attractive kitchen, a lot of built-ins and a functional layout.
Weighing in at around 1,100 square feet, it’s got a spacious living room and an open-plan kitchen in the front, separated by an island with a white stone countertop. The former has a wall of built-in shelving/cabinetry and a wood-burning fireplace. Also nice big windows, which are reputed to offer a skyline view.
Situated in the Turner Towers, the art deco co-op building at 135 Eastern Parkway, this two-bedroom, two-bath unit offers high-ceilings, an elegant pre-war feel and a fair amount of space — around 1,300 square feet.

To the woe of local preservationists, the Landmark Preservation Commission has announced that, following review, they did not find a former bank in Prospect Heights to be worthy of landmarking.

This co-op at 274 St. Johns Place in Prospect Heights isn’t huge but it’s got two good-size bedrooms and is priced well under the million mark. It’s renovated but in a circa-1900 building, so it has some prewar charm — and it’s close to Prospect Park and all its nearby amenities.
Brooklyn, one building at a time.
An elegant bank built for a growing Prospect Heights community will soon be razed to make way for new condos. Here’s its story.
So apparently simple and refined is this Prospect Heights brownstone that you might not suspect it recently underwent an extensive renovation: the removal of a bearing wall to open up the parlor floor, necessitating a new steel beam from front to rear; all-new kitchen and baths; stripping all original woodwork; restoration of the ceiling plaster and moldings; new rift-sawn oak floors throughout; all-new electrical and central air; and many things you don’t see (example: retractable screens to enclose the house’s original back porch and exclude mosquitos).
