Why You’ll Love It…
This 600-square-foot condo features 9-foot-tall ceilings, recessed lighting, and gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. Windows in the bedroom and living room face west toward the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and provide great light in the afternoon. There are also windows in both the kitchen and the bathroom!
When you enter the apartment, you’ll be greeted by the kitchen and an entryway closet. Outfitted with white shaker cabinetry and quartz countertops, the kitchen has plenty of storage and food prep space. The stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher, a double-door fridge with freezer drawers, and a mounted microwave. You can also fit a dining table or bench in this area.
The living room is semi-open to the kitchen and provides access to the bedroom, bathroom, and another closet. You’ll find the largest closet in the bedroom, which is large enough for a queen-size bed in addition to other furniture. The windowed bathroom has a deep soaking tub and a sink console with storage.
Described as “quiet” in the listing, this condo building includes a brand-new laundry room located just one flight down from the unit. The condo also comes with its own deeded storage space! Heat and hot water are included in common charges, and there’s a live-in super in the building.
The location is one of the best parts of the building: you’re right by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, restaurants on Franklin Ave, and an entrance to Prospect Park. Transportation is also easy, as the B, Q, S, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains all stop nearby.
…And Why You Might Not
Although this condo is located in a new building, it doesn’t appear to have an elevator. There’s also no formal dining space in the unit, and although the kitchen is large enough for some dining furniture, it may disrupt the flow of your cooking space. But we’re sure it’s worth it for this gem, especially at this price!
