With a location just across the street from Prospect Park, this one-bedroom co-op offers the allure of easy strolls through Brooklyn’s backyard along with prewar details and a renovated kitchen.
Completed in 1931 for the Lourose Realty Corporation, the pale brick, six-story building at 135 Prospect Park Southwest was designed by the Flatbush-based firm of Cohn Brothers. They specialized in apartment buildings and here they chose to ornament the exterior with Gothic arches, a crenelated roofline and even some mock corner towers for a Medieval feel.
In the unit, a small foyer with a closet opens to the kitchen and living room with the bedroom located at the other end of the apartment. The living room has wood floors, picture rails and two windows.
The renovated kitchen has white cabinets, butcher block countertops and a white subway tile backsplash. An adjacent dining nook — also reachable from the living room — could come in handy as a work from home space.
There is a fair amount of storage in the bedroom, with a wall of custom closets. The wood floors and picture rail continue into this room and there are also two windows.
While the bathroom looks like it has a new black tile floor there are period green tiles with black border trim tiles on the walls and the original built-in shower in addition to a tub.
Amenities in the building include a live-in super, a virtual doorman, laundry room, storage and bike rooms and a landscaped courtyard. A current abatement means the monthly maintenance for this unit is a modest $332.98 until July 1, after that it goes up to $499.68.
Listed with Janet McQueeney of Douglas Elliman, the unit is priced at $595,000. What do you think?
