This Prospect Park South co-op has charm, prewar details, a vintage kitchen and a berth on a bucolic-for-Brooklyn street with tree-lined medians. It’s at 1409 Albemarle Road, a six-story 1939 building with 29 units between Marlborough and Rugby, and within striking distance of the shops and restaurants on Cortelyou Road, the Parade Grounds, and the Q/B trains at Beverly.
It’s listed as a one-bedroom but is more accurately called a studio, though an eat-in kitchen and a decent-sized foyer keep it from feeling too diminutive. The living room/bedroom is around 190 square feet, with double exposures, recessed lighting and parquet floors.
The foyer has moldings and an arched, built-in curio shelf. The kitchen has vintage fixtures that are nicely preserved and a good-sized dining area with a wood floor and double exposures; the bathroom is likewise a vintage number, done up in beige tile.
The place sits on the first floor but looks to be in the rear, and the neighborhood is quiet to begin with. The building has common gardens, a laundry room, storage, a bike room and a live-in super.
Listed by Jennifer Schwartz of Douglas Elliman, the unit is asking $419,000. Maintenance is $570 a month, and there’s a monthly assessment of $43 in place through December 2019. How does that sound?
