In Midwood near Ocean Parkway, a short walk from the Avenue I F train and Di Fara Pizza, a substantial and relatively affordable prewar two-bedroom co-op has some attractive features. Belonging to a 1936 Tudor-style brick elevator building with 47 units at 515 Avenue I, apartment 5F has arched doorways, built-in shelves, parquet floors, light on three sides, and is spacious at around 1,200 square feet.
The apartment is a true two bedroom, with entrance into a foyer possessing a built-in niche and scalloped passages to the living room and a hallway that leads to the kitchen. The living room has windows on two sides. The hallway to the kitchen and bedrooms includes a coat closet, pantry and linen closet.
The narrow eat-in kitchen looks to be in good condition, with white cabinets, speckled tan-gray laminate counters and white stove. Shelves built into a corner of the eating area have cabinets below. The floors are either tile or more likely vinyl or linoleum with a tan-gray stone-like appearance.
The two bathrooms have original yellow or pale orange tiles with black bullnose boarders. One features a vintage bathtub and updated vanity. The bathroom in the master bedroom has a shower behind a glass door.
Although the middle bedroom is on the long and narrow side, dead-ending into windows, both bedrooms have a closet, and the master has three windows on two sides. It also has another attractive scalloped doorway.
The apartment is on the fifth floor of the six-story building, which has additional storage for a fee and shared laundry. The apartment also has permission to install a washer/dryer in the unit, according to the listing, from Gregory Donato at RE/MAX Edge. The monthly maintenance is $870.
It’s asking $530,000. The listing says it’s priced to sell. Will it go fast?
