This stylish Park Slope 1BR is asking nearly $300 per month less than the neighborhood median rent.

We have ourselves a winner, folks. This Park Slope 1BR is a clear choice for our Rental of the Week. The apartment offers an impeccable renovation, an in-unit washer and dryer, a location close to Prospect Park, and a solid dose of Brooklyn charm. What’s more, it’s priced well under the neighborhood median.

Address: 286 5th Ave. #3B

Price: $2,353

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Park Slope

Best feature: The home has recently undergone a gut renovation — and what a reno it is! The apartment sings with lightness and style, especially the kitchen and bathroom.

The kitchen contains Bosch appliances, including an under-sink dishwasher. Blue lower cabinets add distinction to the space and offer an unexpected, lively complement to the white upper cabinets and burnished gold accents. Tucked next to the refrigerator is a stacked in-unit washer and dryer. The bathroom is clad in sleek, marbled stone tiling.

In the bedroom, a large window overlooks a classic Brooklyn scene. And out back, there’s a picture-perfect shared garden complete with an outdoor kitchen and built-in seating. There’s even a hammock. What more could you ask for?

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a Park Slope 1BR is $2,650 per month — nearly $300 more than what our Rental of the Week is asking.

Biggest drawback: As stylish as the kitchen is, it is definitely compact and does not offer much counter space. Additionally, it does not look like there is much closet or storage space, either. Renters might want to consider investing in armoires and other storage space-challenged solutions.

Lastly, the apartment is located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 1st Street. This is no doubt a very central Park Slope location, but 5th Avenue is a busy commercial strip and gets a lot of foot and truck traffic. For those looking for affordable apartments with in-unit laundry and ample charm, however, this Park Slope 1BR is definitely worth a visit.
