Prospect Lefferts Gardens is a much more affordable neighborhood than some of the other areas that border Prospect Park, like Park Slope or even Windsor Terrace. So it makes sense that our Deal of the Week is located in this tree-lined neighborhood. Even better, 256 Winthrop Ave. #2A is a stunning condo in a brand new building, close to transportation and so much more!

Why You’ll Love It…

This unit is located in an 8-unit building constructed in 2021, meaning everything is brand new. In addition to the building’s communal rooftop deck, it also has a stellar location, with the 2 and 5 trains fewer than 500 feet away. Plus, you’ll find unbeatable eateries on nearby Nostrand Avenue, like Allan’s Bakery which has been serving up delectables since 1961.

Inside the apartment, you’ll be welcomed by 10-foot ceilings, large Pella windows, and oak hardwood floors. Plus, there’s a washer/dryer hook-up tucked in a closet, and a ductless A/C and heating system, which keeps the place at a comfortable temperature year-round.

Plus, the condo comes with its very own private balcony! At 41 square feet, it’s the perfect size for eating a meal outside or getting some work done in the warm weather. There’s so much more to enjoy, too, like the kitchen is decked out in two-toned custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. And fear not, there is a dishwasher in the kitchen; it’s just hidden behind matching cabinet panels.

The spa-like bathroom is complete with heated floors and a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. Just across the hall, you’ll find the bedroom with a spacious closet and an oversized exposure.

… And Why You Might Not

At just 588 square feet, this 1-bedroom unit may be too small for some. The windows also face north, so the unit may feel a little dim throughout the day. Plus, it’s unclear from the listing whether or not the building has an elevator.

But still, it’s hard to find new construction at this price point in Brooklyn!
