What’s not to love about Brooklyn Heights? It has easy access to Manhattan, waterfront parks, spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline and great shopping and dining. All of this makes it highly desirable and therefore, pricey. But there are deals to snag, such as our Deal of the Week at 40 Clinton St. #9E for $595,000. It’s a convenient 1-bedroom right down the street from the Brooklyn Heights promenade.
The Price: $595,000
The median asking price for an apartment in Brooklyn Heights is $2.25 million, according to the latest StreetEasy Market Reports. That puts our Deal of the Week at about a quarter of the median asking price in the neighborhood.
Buyers who pay the minimum 25 percent down payment of $148,750 can expect to see monthly payments of around $3,102. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,190 and a maintenance fee of $987.
Why You’ll Love It…
This recently renovated apartment has a nice floor plan, allowing plenty of light. The master bedroom and en suite bath are accessible through Raydoor wall dividers across from the living room. For storage, there are two walk-in closets, including one large one in the master and another off the dining room.
The kitchen is outfitted in sleek white cabinetry and has stainless-steel appliances, including a Wolf oven and cooktop, microwave and dishwasher. A small dining area is just off the galley kitchen.
The bathroom keeps the monochromatic theme going and has a gorgeous glass shower and black tile flooring.
Located on Clinton Street, this apartment is perched right between Cadman Plaza Park and Pier 3. There are plenty of options for eating and shopping on nearby Montague Street, along with gyms and transportation. The N, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains are all a quick walk away.
The apartment is located in a full-service building, complete with a doorman, elevator, bike room, parking garage, and additional storage. Plus, cats and dogs are both allowed. Co-purchasing, parents buying, pied-à-terre use, and sublets are all permitted.
… And Why You Might Not
Even though this apartment is a corner unit, there are windows on one side only. Also, the dining area isn’t very large and can only seat two without completely blocking the entryway. But for this price and location, this is worth exploring.
