Here’s a well-located, well-groomed, but relatively compact prewar one-bedroom co-op in Prospect Heights. It’s located on the second floor of a modest early 20th century five-story, 46-unit brick walkup building, not far from the Brooklyn Public Library and Grand Army Plaza.
The apartment has painted wood floors and apparently original if simple moldings. One of its best features is the nicely renovated kitchen featuring butcher block counters, wood cabinetry, and stainless steel backsplash and appliances.
The bedroom is long enough to include an office or sitting room. The bathroom too looks to be in good condition, possibly updated relatively recently. There are four closets.
The wallpaper in the bedroom, gray walls, and bright yellow-painted trim might not be to everyone’s liking, but that’s easily remedied.
The building is named the Nancy Lincoln, presumably after Abe Lincoln’s mother. The building’s limestone entrance features pilasters and modern ironwork with a sunburst pattern. Some of the windows are arched or pedimented, with Juliet balconies. The first and fifth floors have limestone bands to offset the red brick, but overall the building and its apartments are pretty workmanlike.
Other one-bedrooms at 400 Lincoln Place on higher floors have sold for less in the last year or two. With its $701 monthly maintenance, unit 2A would run more than $3,000 a month, based on 20 percent down and a 30-year lease.
Amanda Nelson of Compass is handling the listing, which is looking for $579,000. Worth it?
