Easy access to Manhattan, great shopping, parks, and views: these are just a few of the things we love about Brooklyn Heights. However, the neighborhood’s real estate prices can be a bit demanding. That’s why this 2-bedroom at 150 Joralemon St. #11E for $775K is our Deal of the Week.

The Price: $775,000

The median asking price for an apartment in Brooklyn Heights is $2,135,000, according to the latest StreetEasy Market Report. That puts our Deal of the Week at around a third of the median asking price for the neighborhood.

Buyers who pay the 20 percent minimum down payment of $155,000 can expect to see monthly payments of around $4,308. This includes a mortgage payment of approximately $2,939 and a monthly maintenance fee of $1,369.

Why You’ll Love It…

Large windows in every room, high-beamed ceilings, and light-colored hardwoods throughout make this a bright, welcoming place.

The recently updated kitchen has slick, dark-lacquered cabinets, which contrast smartly with the white Corian countertops and stainless-steel appliances. A sleek white peninsula offers more room to cook in addition to serving as a breakfast bar.

Not only does this apartment have 2 bedrooms, but also 1.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has its own full bathroom en suite and two roomy closets. There’s a half-bath off the living room. The second bedroom offers interesting versatility. It is separated from the living room by floor-to-ceiling, frosted sliding glass doors, which can be opened for more living space or closed for use as a bedroom or office.

This apartment is in a prewar, landmarked building with plenty of amenities, including a gym, laundry facilities on every floor, live-in super, and additional storage. Subletting is permitted, as are cats and dogs.

The immediate neighborhood is also great, with an Equinox gym just down the street and plenty of shopping two blocks away on Atlantic Avenue. Cadman Plaza Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park are also both within an easy walking distance. Plus, the R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains all stop at the nearby Borough Hall subway stop.

… And Why You Might Not

If the second bedroom will be used as a bedroom, and not an office — whoever occupies it will need to use the shower in the master suite. And the kitchen is definitely on the smaller side, although the peninsula does help on the counter space front. Lastly, those monthlies are a bit on the higher end, but you get a lot for your money.
