A fairly straightforward condo in a 74-unit residential building in Fort Greene that opened in 2009, this two-bedroom, two-bath modern unit has the advantage of a juliet balcony outside the combined living-dining room and open kitchen, and ample windows in every room except the second bathroom. Notably, it comes with a deeded parking space.
Kathryn Scott’s gracious Brooklyn Heights brownstone is not what most people think of when they imagine a “starter home.” But strictly speaking, it is. The home is five floors; Scott purchased the third and fourth as her first apartment, in 1986; years later, she bought the parlor and garden floors as a home for her mother; in 2006, she bought the top floor apartment. Upon her mother’s passing, Scott combined all but the top floor into a single home.
