This year, Park Slope ranked as one of the 10 priciest New York neighborhoods for the first time. Known for its beautiful brownstones, great schools, prime location and low crime rates, it’s no wonder why. Yes, Park Slope is in demand, but buying a decently-sized, reasonably priced home here isn’t impossible, and our Deal of the Week is here to prove it. This 2-bedroom apartment at 384 6th Ave. #4 is not only located in a picture-perfect townhouse on a tree-lined street, but it also has its own private roof deck.
The Price: $685,000
According to the latest StreetEasy Marketing Report, the median sales price for an apartment in Park Slope is $1,335,000. That means our Deal of the Week is nearly half the cost of Slope’s median sales price. And with a minimum down payment of 10 percent ($68,500), buyers can expect to pay around $3,810 a month, which includes a mortgage payment of $3,142 and a relatively low maintenance fee of $668. By comparison, the monthly rent in Park Slope is $2,900.
Why You’ll Love It…
This apartment is full of charming prewar touches, mixed with new, modern updates. The renovated kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and even has a dishwasher tucked in. Throughout the apartment, there are gorgeous hardwood floors, custom shelving, and new Pella windows, with eastern and western exposures.
One bedroom is large enough for a queen-size bed, while the second is large enough for a twin. This is a true 2-bedroom apartment, meaning both of the bedrooms have a closet and a window.
There’s also an in-unit washer-dryer, so no worries about bringing laundry up and down the stairs. And last but not least, this apartment has access to its very own private rooftop deck, which offers great views of the city and neighborhood.
Speaking of the neighborhood, the co-op is located between great shopping, entertainment and dining on 5th and 7th Avenues. The library and YMCA are right down the street, plus the F/G trains are just a couple of blocks away. And it’s just a 10-minute walk to Prospect Park.
… And Why You Might Not
While it’s definitely a true 2-bedroom, the second bedroom is on the smaller side. But for a kid or teenager, a twin bed with room for a dresser or desk should work fine. The other catch is that this apartment resides on the fourth floor of a building without an elevator, so you’ll be getting your steps in. Lastly, the washer-dryer is tucked into a small closet in the corner of the living room.
