Here’s a modestly detailed one-bedroom that offers some appealing features, including outdoor space and plenty of closets. It’s on the fourth floor of a postwar building in Ditmas Park, at 1818 Newkirk Avenue.
Designed by architectural firm Morris Rothstein & Son, the six-story brick building was completed in 1958 and christened Garland House, likely named after the original owner, the Gar-Land Management Company. An early brochure for the building touts the Fedders built-in air conditioners, oversized rooms, concealed radiators, closets and master television antenna outlets.
The floorplan included in the brochure shows that the layout for this unit hasn’t changed since construction. It’s got a generous foyer that opens to a living room, dining nook and kitchen. There are wood floors in all but the kitchen and bath and white walls throughout. For storage there’s a walk-in closet in the foyer and four smaller closets in the unit.
A door in the living room leads out to the terrace, which is large enough for a small table and chairs.
The windowed galley kitchen has a tile floor, white cabinets and butcher block countertops. Like the bathroom, which has white subway tile with black trim and all white fixtures, it appears to be move-in ready.
In addition to two closets the bedroom boasts two exposures, one of those looking out onto the terrace.
One of the amenities mentioned for the building is a parking garage, but there’s no mention of a waiting list or additional fee associated with the convenience. The building also has a part-time doorman, laundry room, bike room and common garden and patio area. Maintenance fees for this unit are $778 a month.
The unit was last on the market in 2008 and went for $365,470. It’s now listed with DeAnna Lenhart of Douglas Elliman for $430,000. What do you think?
