Here’s a darling co-op apartment in Flatbush that’s impressive for its spaciousness as well as its elegance. With two bedrooms, one-bath, more than 1,100 square feet of space and numerous original details, it’s located at 221 East 18th Street, not far from the newly restored Kings Theatre.
Seven windows throughout afford a view only into the neighboring building’s apartments, but they appear to still keep the unit bright and airy. Arched doorways and a mix of inlaid and parquet floors throughout define the apartment’s character and give it a pre-war flavor.
In the front, there’s a generous foyer with two large closets, which opens onto an even larger sitting room. With an equally sizable dining room off to the side, it makes for a sprawling central living space, part of which could easily be converted into a home office.
In comparison, the galley kitchen is cramped if modern — but, with that said, it does have a dishwasher, a nice amount of light and plenty of cabinet space.
Both of the bedrooms are large as well, each with a closet, and plenty of light. The bathroom, which was recently renovated, according to the listing, has both a standing shower and a tub, although pictures only show half of the space.
There are a slew of amenities, including an elevator, common backyard with tables and grills, bike storage, a live-in super, laundry room and additional storage space for $10 a month.
It’s a few short blocks from the open-cut Beverley Road Q stop and the Church Avenue B and Q express station. Prospect Park is three avenues to the north and Flatbush Avenue, with all its commercial offerings, a quick walk to the east, with lots of local eats down on Cortelyou.
Laura Rozos of Corcoran has the listing, which is asking $720,000. The monthly maintenance is $1,059. Decent deal?
