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.
The wood floor is painted, which won’t thrill everyone, though presumably it’s strippable. It’s a walkup — possibly fourth floor, though maybe third.
There’s a washer dryer, which is a plus — it’s in the kitchen though. Speaking of the kitchen, it’s not huge, but it’s recently renovated with new appliances, and quite nice. Same goes for the bathroom.
Overall, the apartment is small, perhaps about 600 or 700 square feet, going by the floor plan.
The building has a shared roof deck, and storage and a bike room in the basement. There are “interior enhancements to the lobby and stairwell planned immediately,” according to the listing, from Sascha Beicken at Halstead. Maintenance is a not-unreasonable $896.61.
The ask is $799,000, which, as we said, is low for this neck of the woods — in absolute terms. On a square foot basis, it’s probably about average — or even higher than average.
