A Prewar Gem in Prime Park Slope
Saves: As of this writing, the most popular sale for April 5 has been saved by more than 115 users.
Price: $899,000. Assuming a 30-year mortgage and the minimum down payment of 20% ($179,800), StreetEasy estimates total monthly payments at $4,091. This includes the mortgage payment ($3,166) and maintenance fee ($925).
Why it’s so popular: Park Slope is always in high demand. The median asking price here is $1.5 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our most popular sale for April 5 at more than half a million dollars below average for the neighborhood.
And this Park Slope 2BR is dripping with prewar charm. It’s set in a double-barrel-fronted brownstone building that’s less than a block from Prospect Park. The interior boasts plenty of original moldings, tin ceilings, and a decorative fireplace. In addition, the bathroom features a claw-foot tub and a custom double sink built into a vintage dresser. There’s great light too, with a living-room bay window and three exposures.
One note about the layout: This is a railroad apartment, meaning the space is long and fairly narrow. It’s currently configured as a 1-bedroom with a large office. Because the rooms flow one into another, it would take some remodeling to configure a legal second bedroom — but it’s certainly doable. The listing provides an alternate floor plan to show what it would look like.
