This prewar Prospect Heights two-bedroom co-op is gracious and attractive, with generous spaces and a functional layout. It’s on the second floor of a 78-unit elevator building at 175 Eastern Parkway, a worthy location directly across the street from the Brooklyn Museum.
The apartment holds nearly 1,000 square feet of space, split between a living/dining room, small kitchen, single bath, and two good-sized bedrooms with decent sized closets. There’s also an additional room that could serve as an office, nursery or storage. It’s windowless and oddly shaped, but still nice to have.
The ceilings are high and there are parquet floors, likely original to the 1922 building. Perhaps not original but decorative nonetheless are wall moldings, crown moldings above the window and door casings, and a wainscot in the living room.
The kitchen is renovated, with stone countertops, white cabinetry and appliances that look to be of recent vintage, including a microwave and dishwasher. The bathroom could use some updating but looks to be in good condition.
The building’s got a live-in super, a doorman, and a newly renovated gym. Storage is available. There’s no mention of a laundry room; perhaps that’s an oversight, perhaps there isn’t one, which would be unfortunate. Maintenance is a reasonable-sounding $776 a month.
Listed by Brian Giambalvo and Michael Tannen of Corcoran, the unit — which can be seen at an open house tomorrow from 6 to 7 p.m. — is asking $895,000. Worth it?
