This one-bedroom condo in Midwood isn’t going to set anyone’s world on fire, but it’s renovated with decent space and a livable layout for under $400,000, with reasonable monthly fees. It’s in a prewar building at 494 Ocean Avenue, near Avenue J.
The bedroom is of moderate size, with double exposures and a large closet, with a second one in the hallway outside. There’s a second, windowless space off the living room, separated by French doors, that could serve as an office or suit some other purpose.
The kitchen is nicely renovated, with wood cabinetry, a granite countertop, and, in case it need be mentioned, stainless steel appliances, including a microwave.
The unit in the rear of the building, which is good for noise; less good is the predominance of brick-wall views outside the windows, though some sky can be eyed from the bedroom.
There’s laundry in the building. The Q train is a few blocks away on Avenue J. (As the listing notes, so is the revered Di Fara pizzeria.)
Listed by Compass brokers Neely Moore and Alyssa Morris, the unit is asking $379,000. Common charges and taxes tally $559 a month. Decent apartment? Fair price?
