A two-block jaunt to Prospect Park, a bright bay window, and a ton of space to spread out could all be yours with our Deal of the Week. This wide-open Prospect Heights 2BR, 436 Sterling Place #10, doesn’t make any sacrifices when it comes to comfort, style, or location. And yet somehow it’s still well below market price for the area! Take a look.
The Price: $649,000
The median asking price for a home in Prospect Heights is $1.2 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at about half the asking price for the neighborhood.
Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $129,800 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,199. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,262 and a maintenance fee of $937.
Why You’ll Love It…
When you enter this Prospect Heights 2BR, a hall foyer opens out into an expansive living area. It’s accented by a long exposed brick wall, but the real star of the show is the sunny bay window. The generous windowsill could be the future site of a cozy reading bench. Or you could take a cue from the listing photo and deck it out in house plants. Either way, it’s sure to be one of your favorite spots.
The chic factor is amplified by a modern and open kitchen. It features granite counters, ample cabinet space, a dishwasher, and another bright window. Meanwhile, both bedrooms have south-facing windows, so you’ll get prime sunlight throughout the space all day long.
Finally, our Deal of the Week is in a prewar building just a couple blocks from Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Museum, and and Prospect Park. What a location! It also offers a laundry room, a bike room, and designated storage.

… And Why You Might Not
Unfortunately, like so many prewar buildings, this one is a walkup. But the unit is only on the second floor, so it’s not a lot of stairs. In addition, this Prospect Heights 2BR is sorely lacking in storage. There’s only one closet in the entire apartment, and it’s by the bathroom — there’s no closet in either bedroom. So you’ll have to get creative with storage solutions.
