Three bedrooms and a parking space for $695,000? Yes, please! That’s the deal at this top-floor condo at 614 East 7th Street in Kensington. The apartment looks to be about 1,000 square feet and also comes with a small private terrace.

The building complex and the apartment aren’t going to win any design awards but they look to be in fine shape. Clearly the size and amenities are what carry the day here. Seem like a good deal to you?

There’s nothing fancy about this two-bedroom in Kensington, but it’s affordable and close to the train. The kitchen and bathroom are newly updated, and there’s enough space in the kitchen to fit a small dining table. Both bedrooms seem decently sized too. Transit-wise, it’s only two blocks from the F/G trains at Church Avenue. Do you think it’s a good deal for $1,550 a month?

This two-bedroom co-op at 1212 Ocean Avenue in Flatbush doesn’t photograph well but that’s a good thing for buyers with a little vision. Beyond the clutter and flash lighting we see lots of prewar details and a lot of square footage (1,250) for the price ($285,000). In case you haven’t been following, $228 a foot for a prewar apartment is hard to find! Strong buy.

If you’re looking for an affordable prewar two-bedroom in Brooklyn you’re unlikely to find a better value than this place at 415 Ocean Parkway in Kensington. The pleasingly rectilinear floor plan includes an eat-in kitchen, dining area, and two bathrooms in addition to the two bedrooms. The 1,150-square-foot pad has a monthly maintenance of $999 and an asking price of $599,000. Sound like a deal?

The new doors and laminated floors aren’t winning any style points here, but this two-bedroom in Kensington still has a quaint prewar feel for an affordable price. The 800-square-foot pad has a newly renovated bathroom, new kitchen appliances, and two nicely sized bedrooms.

And it’s only a block from the F train at Ditmas Avenue. Do you think it’s a good deal for $1,700 a month?

Construction is progressing at The Kestrel in Windsor Terrace, where the first windows are being installed. The 126-unit rental development at 33 Caton Place will include a mixture of studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms, and amenities like a gym and concierge service. DJ Associates Architect PC and Luca Andrisani Architects are designing the eight-story building, whose developer is Sam Boymelgreen. Leasing was supposed to begin this month, but given the construction progress, we’re guessing it won’t happen until the fall.

Meanwhile, four stories have risen across the street at 22 Caton Place. Hudson Companies is developing the seven-story, 73-unit building. Kiss+Cathcart Architects are designing it. It will be LEED Gold certified and feature an “articulated brick facade… with vine-covered balconies.”

We’ve included a construction photo of 22 Caton and a rendering after the jump.

We’re seeing a lot of sweet one-family homes in the Windsor Terrace and Kensington area for just under a million, and this is one of them. It looks to be circa-1900, so the living, dining and kitchen are all on one level with the bedrooms above.

The listing and photos show what appears to be a renovated house with lots of original details, including a mantel, original floors, decorative wall molding, and the passthrough and built-ins upstairs. However, the listing says nothing about mechanicals and there are no photos of kitchens and baths, so we’re not sure. The ask is $950,000. What do you make of it?
