Attractive Prewar Walkup With Vintage Details in Prospect Heights Near Park Asks $2,150

Here’s a one-bedroom for rent a few blocks from Prospect Park in a 1922 brick walkup with 28 apartments, most of which appear to be rent regulated. At its price, this one, apartment 3E, would surely fall within that category. It’s advertised as “massive” in the listing, from Andrea Weksler of Douglas Elliman, but the floor plan helpfully puts that to rest, coming in at little more than 500 square feet. But the price counts as eminently reasonable in today’s absurd market.

It’s got a proper and roomy foyer with a closet, picture-frame moldings and parquet with inlays throughout. The ceilings are high and it’s got plenty of windows on three exposures.

Dining and living are combined in one room, though there may be space for a small table in the kitchen. The latter has a dishwasher, plenty of counter space and pretty standard appliances and cabinets. It also has tear in the vinyl flooring, unless it’s been updated since the photos were taken.

The bathroom is not shown, and there is only one other closet in the unit, next to the bathroom.

Located at 417 St. Johns Place in Prospect Heights, the building has a doorway surrounded with a decorative foliate and crest frame, topped with a balcony with iron railings. The top floor has arched windows topped with keystones and Juliet balconies. There’s a brick parapet with shields and other typical early 20th century details.

An open house is happening today from 5 to 6 p.m. if you want to take a gander. At $2,150, there may be a small crowd. Worth a look?
