Why It’s So Popular
There’s a lot of appeal within this 2-bedroom co-op situated in the heart of Fort Greene. The apartment is one of just four inside a pre-war building dating back to 1930, and it’s a balanced mix of classic charm and contemporary conveniences. We’re almost certain its popularity can be attributed to the spacious backyard, which nearly matches the size of the entire apartment and includes a large deck — but that’s not all there is to love.
Before we gawk over the yard space, let’s dive into the interiors. The first thing encountered upon entering is the living room, where ceilings soar an impressive 12 feet high and an original brick wall is adorned by a wood-burning fireplace. A galley kitchen is located just off the living room, decked out in white cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances, and a glass door that gives access to the backyard.

The primary bedroom is an en-suite that shows off original floors, intricate moldings, and oversized wood-framed windows. A windowed den/home office space nestled within the bedroom adds a cozy space to work and relax in. The second bedroom, located near the kitchen, is also intimate and overlooks the backyard. Speaking of the yard, it’s a beauty with a rugged stone walkway, plenty of plants, and an elevated deck.
The location is a gem and is a block away from Fulton Street, where supermarkets like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are within close proximity, along with the Lafayette Avenue subway station that services the A and C lines.Find more Brooklyn homes for sale on StreetEasy
