Here’s a one-bedroom co-op in a Park Slope brownstone that has original details as well as outdoor space. Built in 1903 by architect and builder Benjamin Driesler, it’s located within the neighborhood’s historic district at 648 2nd Street, a half block from Prospect Park.
There are two working fireplaces, one in the bedroom and the other in the living room. The one shown has an original mantel, and there is also fancy plasterwork. The floors, however, appear to be replacements.
The listing suggests the possibility of converting the apartment to a two-bedroom but this seems ambitious given the size of the unit, although a home office could easily be created in the living room’s alcove.
The strip kitchen doubles as a hallway. The nicely renovated bathroom has a pedestal sink and a bright turquoise wall.
The unit has a washer/dryer and decent closet space considering its size (there are four).
The outdoor space is attractive and big enough for dining. It has built-in seating, a wood deck and wood fence.
Listed by Corcoran’s Nicole Gallucio and Kathleen Berg, it’s asking $849,000 and the monthly maintenance is $558. What do you say?
