New York real estate often seems like a game of compromises — sacrificing a dishwasher for extra square footage or forsaking shared outdoor space for your favorite neighborhood. But sometimes, you stumble upon an apartment that seems to check off the boxes, like our Deal of the Week. This 2-bedroom unit in North Flatbush, 2107 Bedford Avenue #C9, is a few short blocks from Prospect Park in a beautifully renovated pre-war building with a private courtyard. There is also an in-unit surprise — a washer and dryer.
The Price: $580,000
The median asking price for a home in Flatbush was $607,500 this October, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. Nearby Prospect Lefferts Gardens had a higher median asking price of $745,000. That puts our Deal of the Week below the median asking price for both neighborhoods!
Buyers who opt for the 10% minimum down payment of $58,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,074. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,198, common charges of $574, and monthly taxes of $302.
Why You’ll Love It…
Where to begin? Perhaps with the building’s elegant pre-war entrance — ornate iron gates make a fantastic first impression. They lead the way to a stunning outdoor walkway with gorgeous archways. At the end is the shared courtyard.
The apartment is equally spectacular, thanks to modern updates. The unit looks spacious because it is — 756 square feet, to be exact. The sleek kitchen within the open living room features two-tone cabinetry and a stainless steel backsplash. The stainless steel goodness doesn’t end there — gleaming high-end appliances, including a dishwasher and a full-size fridge, top things off nicely. According to the floor plan, the washer and dryer are tucked behind a cabinet front in the kitchen.
If you crave privacy at home, the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the apartment. Plus, each one has a closet and at least one window, making this a genuine 2-bedroom unit. Speaking of closets, you’ll find another one in the entryway, perfect for storing coats or cleaning supplies. It’s also conveniently near the bathroom outfitted in sleek gray and white tile.
Finally, our Deal of the Week is located right on Flatbush and Prospect Lefferts Gardens border — a pretty perfect location. The Prospect Park Lake is just a few blocks away, as are several subway stops. You’ll have the 2, 5, B, and Q trains to choose from.

… And Why You Might Not
If you are looking for a nice view, this unit may not be for you. The apartment faces the back of the building and a few exterior walls. Additionally, it’s unclear which floor this unit is on, and the building may not have an elevator.
