Here’s a two-bedroom co-op that sits at the top of an 1898 manse designed by Montrose Morris and offers a view of Prospect Park that must be pretty sweet. It’s at 19 Prospect Park West, off Carroll Street, a bit removed from the hubbub of Grand Army Plaza but close enough for an easy walk to the subway, farmer’s market and main library.
The living room’s got a wood-burning fireplace with a restored mahogany mantel, and a trio of dormer windows facing the park. There’s original hardwood floors, and the slanting walls offer a bit of character.
There’s a center kitchen with an operable skylight, which offers a small breakfast bar and blonde wood cabinetry that looks custom made, and somewhat worn.
The bedrooms are in the rear. The smaller one is quite small, but it has a cool handmade bunk bed, should that happen to suit your needs.
The master opens to a large fenced deck, a significant plus.
In the minus department, neither bedroom has a closet. There’s one out in the hallway, and a second one in the living room; there’s also a laundry closet (with a proper vent for a dryer) off the living room.
Another check for the minus column: you’ve got to walk through the living room to get to the sole bathroom. (Which is “vintage,” according to the listing — no photo though.)
We’re guessing the five-unit building is a walkup; it is also debt-free, according to the listing.
Listed by Judith Lief of Corcoran, the unit is asking $1.085 million. Maintenance will add $868 to the monthly nut. How do you like the place?
