Park Slope is the stuff of Brooklyn dreams: living in a brownstone, exploring Prospect Park, enjoying loads of local restaurants. Who wouldn’t love it? Unfortunately, prices in this beloved neighborhood are not exactly cheap. But every once in a while, an outstanding deal comes along. Our Deal of the Week, 306 Garfield Pl. #2F, is a Park Slope 1BR in a classic barrel-front townhouse with an epic stained glass bay window. 

The Price: $528,000

Like we said, the charms of Park Slope come at a premium. The median asking price for a home here is a high $1.6 million, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at about a third of the area’s average price.

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $105,600 can expect to see monthly payments of $2,471. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,871 and a maintenance fee of $600 — very low by NYC standards.

Why You’ll Love It…

Let’s start with the star of the show: that 10-foot bay window, complete with stained glass detailing. Absolute prewar perfection! The inlaid herringbone hardwoods are stellar as well. This Park Slope 1BR is on the second floor of an 1899 townhouse on a landmarked street, and it shows in the details.

On the other end of the living room you’ll find a renovated open kitchen, which features a ton of cabinet space and a dishwasher. The breakfast bar provides a perfect spot to prep food, eat, or even work from home. And with storage notoriously hard to come by in NYC apartments, the three closets situated near the bathroom are a great feature as well. One is even a walk-in. Plus, the bathroom has a unique soaking tub for some rest and relaxation.

Finally, our Deal of the Week is just a stone’s throw from Prospect Park — less than a block. And there’s even laundry in the basement!

… And Why You Might Not

This Park Slope 1BR is beautiful, but it is not big. The bedroom is especially tiny at just 7′ x 12′. But it does accommodate a queen-size bed when put lengthwise against the wall. The closets are also all on the opposite side of the apartment from the bedroom, which is a bit inconvenient. The trip across the living room shouldn’t take long, though!
