Spacious Prewar Co-op in Flatbush With Deco Flair, Shared Courtyard Asks $339,500

by

This cute Flatbush two-bedroom offers a decent amount of space for the price and low monthly maintenance charges, in a prewar building. It’s on the fifth floor of the Clinton Houses, at 657 East 26th Street, a six-story, 113-unit building close to Brooklyn College, built in 1940.

It’s “a legal one-bed, one-bath, defined as a two-bed,” says the listing, which is to say it started life with a single large bedroom that has been chopped into two. The resulting bedrooms are still adequately sized, each with a single window, though knocking the walls down and returning this to a one-bedroom wouldn’t be an unreasonable way to go.

The bedrooms share a single large closet, but there are three more up by the entrance.

There’s decent space elsewhere: the living room is large, at 20 feet long, and there’s a “dining foyer” with a built-in bookshelf and a small study with double exposures. The kitchen looks a bit cramped (unless that fridge can be pushed back toward the wall), but there’s ample cabinetry.

The building has an on-call super, a porter, a laundry room, a bike room, storage and a common courtyard. The 2 and 5 trains aren’t far off at the Flatbush Avenue/Brooklyn College stop.

Toni Martin of Corcoran is the broker, $339,500 is the ask. Maintenance is $450 a month. Interested?
