If charming streets, views of Manhattan, easy access to public transit, and an abundance of parks sound good to you, then you might just love Brooklyn Heights. The neighborhood is full of perks, and it’s also sadly one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Brooklyn. But there are still some steals on the market. Take our Deal of the Week: 40 Clinton Ave. #9D. This Brooklyn Heights 1-bedroom has modern updates and a prime location just a few blocks away from the Promenade.

The Price: $575,000

The median price for a Brooklyn Heights 1-bedroom home is $735,000. That puts our Deal of the Week more than $150,000 under the median price for the nabe.

Buyers who put down the 20 percent minimum downpayment of $115,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,207. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,241 and a maintenance fee of $966. By comparison, the median monthly rent in Brooklyn Heights for a 1-bedroom apartment is $3,400.

Why You’ll Love It…

Oversized windows in this apartment drench the space in light. Even better, their open city views are protected by the neighborhood’s historical designation — so no new construction can ever block you from seeing that skyline!

The living area is open to the modern chef’s kitchen, with a quartz-topped breakfast bar separating the two spaces. The kitchen has high-end stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher, and the bathroom has also been updated, with a soaking tub and ornate tile floors. The bedroom has a big closet, plus there are additional closets in the foyer entry, perfect for storing coats and linens.

The co-op building boasts amenities like a laundry room with brand new machines, and it takes advantage of its prime location with a rooftop terrace that offers stunning views of the water and Manhattan. Transportation is a breeze with the R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains at Court Street just steps away.

… And Why You Might Not

While this apartment is very well appointed, spacious it is not. A dining set in addition to the breakfast bar might be a tight squeeze, and there’s not a lot of room in the compact bedroom for much more than the bed. But for an amenity-filled home in a truly sterling location, this Brooklyn Heights 1-bedroom is one you won’t want to miss.
