Prewar Two-Bedroom With Dining Room in Finnish Co-op Overlooking Sunset Park Asks $710K

A well-proportioned top-floor walkup in a 1925 Finnish cooperative has a bank of windows overlooking Sunset Park. The most spacious room is the combined living and dining room, floored in bordered parquet–a wall was removed at some point, along with the French doors between. Hanging bookshelves cover the far wall.

The eat-in kitchen was updated in a not too distant era, and has a wall of wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and stone counters that wrap around into a breakfast bar. The floors are mottled brown tile.

The bathroom is proper and relatively recently updated but does not appear to match the listing description “spacious spa windowed bath with soaking tub.” It has what looks like a normal bathtub, tan tiled walls with an accent stripe, and larger square tan floor tiles laid in a running bond pattern. The vanity is a standard Home Depot variety, and the medicine cabinet has an array of lightbulbs on the top.

The two bedrooms–not three, as the listing says–are both adequately sized and each has a closet. (The unit is a bit bigger than the typical Sunset Park two-bedroom, and the listing shows an alternative floor plan with the far end of the living room made over into a third bedroom.) There are five closets in the apartment altogether.

The 69-unit, four-story walkup building at 655 41st Street has laundry and a shared, landscaped courtyard.

The maintenance is low at $600 per month. The apartment is offered for $710,000, in a listing from Bryan Rettaliata and Jessica Buchman at Corcoran. Is it worth taking a look?
