Imagine doing a power walk down the Brooklyn Heights Promenade each morning before work. Or, sitting in the park with friends on weekends. And having access to tons of subway and shopping options right around the corner. All of this doesn’t have to come at a staggering price point. That’s why our Deal of the Week at 175 Columbia Heights #5R has it all covered. It’s a 1-bedroom co-op in Brooklyn Heights for $460,000. Let’s take a closer look.
The Price: $460,000
The median sold price for an apartment in Brooklyn Heights is $1,045,000, according to the latest StreetEasy Market Reports. That puts our Deal of the Week at just around half the median sold price for the neighborhood.
Buyers who pay the 20% minimum down payment of $92,000 can expect to see monthly payments of about $2,534. This includes a monthly mortgage payment of $1,821 and a maintenance fee of $713.
Why You’ll Love It…
We love foyers because they signify a formality and nice transition space to an apartment. Plus, they usually have a nice closet and this one does. Just beyond is the living room, dining area and kitchen, which are all open to one another, creating a spacious and airy floor plan. The space is finished off with southeastern-facing windows and gorgeous hardwood floors.
The cozy kitchen features white subway tile backsplash, white Shaker-style cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances. Round-pattern tile on the floor ties the monochromatic look together.
The bedroom is big enough to accommodate a queen-sized bed, and also has its own closet. The bathroom, off the living area, has a skylight for maximum light and a classic black-and-white color scheme.
This prewar condominium is situated on Columbia Heights, a classic, quaint Brooklyn street lined with brownstones. And better yet: it’s right around the corner from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, a gorgeous stretch along the water to Brooklyn Bridge Park. Plus, the 2, 3, R, 4, 5, A, and C trains are all an easy walk away.
Pets and gifting are also both allowed.
… And Why You Might Not
Not every apartment can be perfect; this one happens to be a fifth-floor walk-up. Plus, the apartment is definitely on the smaller side. There’s not much counter space in the kitchen or room for extra furniture in the bedroom. But for an unbeatable location, a few sacrifices deserve to be made.
