Prospect Heights is a Brooklyn neighborhood that seemingly has it all: access to public transit, Prospect Park, museums, and more. Not as great? The neighborhood’s higher price point. Yet, there are still plenty of deals to be found in Prospect Heights, and our Deal of the Week is proof. The 2-bedroom co-op at 328 Sterling Place #4E is filled with light, charm and has plenty of room to move around.
The Price: $799,000
The median asking price for an apartment in Prospect Heights is $1,650,000, according to the latest StreetEasy Market Reports. That puts our Deal of the Week at about half the median asking price for this increasingly popular Brooklyn nabe.
Buyers who pay the 20 percent minimum down payment of $159,800 can expect to see monthly payments of about $3,846. This includes a mortgage payment of roughly $3,048 and a maintenance fee of $798.
Why You’ll Love It …
The star of the show in this apartment is the spacious, decked-out kitchen. A center island provides extra counter space and room to dine, and separates the kitchen from the living room. There are also stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. Topping it off is a dark-colored tile backsplash that contrasts with the lighter wood cabinetry.
The living room has enough space for a dining set and features two more windows — both south-facing, like most of the windows in this apartment.

This is also a true 2-bedroom, meaning that each bedroom has its own closet and window. Plus, there’s a coat closet in the entryway for additional storage. The bedrooms are separated by the bathroom, which has some interesting angled walls and a window; classic white subway tile wraps the whole room.
This fourth-floor apartment is in an elevator building that allows pets and offers bike storage and a laundry room. The location is hard to beat, near Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Public Library and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The 2, 3, B, and Q trains are all nearby, too. You’ll never be short of things to do on the weekend, from farmers markets to new exhibits at the Brooklyn Museum to stopping at Ample Hills for ice cream.
… And Why You Might Not
There aren’t any specific buying restrictions or allowances in place here, so this might not be the go-to for those looking for a pied-à-terre. Plus, neither bedroom is huge; the smaller one looks more suitable for single beds than anything else. But if you’re looking for a 2-bedroom in a great Brooklyn neighborhood, this could be a great option.
