Though relatively modest in size, this two-bedroom garden-level co-op is centrally located in Park Slope and lacks for nothing in its interior planning. At about 900 square feet plus a terrace, it might do the trick for a well-off couple or small family.
Clever space allocation has allowed for a large foyer with room for seating, seven closets plus storage under the stoop, built-ins, and an in-unit washer-dryer.
The double door entry opens to a foyer with a wide coat closet. The combined living room/dining room/kitchen has built-in shelving and a wood-burning fireplace with an Italianate marble mantel.
The compact kitchen has marble countertops and new high-end appliances. To the side of the kitchen is a large pantry containing the refrigerator and another walk-in closet.
The bathroom is not pictured, but the listing says it’s fully renovated. There’s a large linen closet and a washer/dryer across the hall.
The smaller bedroom has two windows and a closet. The master bedroom has two small closets, a window, and a glass door leading out to a slate-covered two-level terrace with room for seating and a barbecue.
There are new hardware floors, high baseboards, some crown molding and a few recessed lights. The home looks to have electric baseboard heating, which is less than ideal.
With four stories and four units, presumably the building, at 139 6th Avenue, is self managed. Built between 1869 and 1870 by Daniel M. Wells, the Italianate brownstone is in the Park Slope Historic District. It is one of a block of brownstones the designation report calls “among Park Slope’s earliest.”
It last sold only a year ago, in May 2018 for $1.050 million. Since then, it has acquired some upper kitchen cabinets and two sets of built-ins in the living room, and the kitchen cabinetry has been painted white and has new handles.
Now the unit is asking $1.2 million. Handled by agents Dan Kessler and Byron Anderson of Compass, the apartment has a monthly maintenance of $1,000. Is it a good price, all things considered?
