Lower price points in NYC often mean sacrificing something, be it a decent kitchen, closet space, or square footage. But that’s not the case with our Deal of the Week, which has all that and then some. This Prospect Lefferts Gardens 1BR, 135 Hawthorne St. #1E, spans more than 900 square feet! And it’s only a couple of blocks from the park, in a stellar neighborhood with great restaurants and transportation options.

The Price: $489,000

The median asking price for a home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens is $919,500 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is about half the average price for the neighborhood!

Why You’ll Love It…

First things first: This Prospect Lefferts Gardens 1BR is spacious. The bedroom alone boasts over 200 square feet, with two good-size closets. It also has two bright exposures, including a double window that overlooks the building’s leafy common garden. Talk about tranquil! In addition, the gracious layout features a formal entryway and a sizable dining room that would make a fantastic home office. The living room is massive.

Our Deal of the Week is also teeming with vintage charm. The hardwood floors are inlaid, and graceful archways separate the rooms. That same arch is replicated in handy built-in shelves. But the unit is updated where it counts, like the bright eat-in kitchen. It’s decked out in new stainless appliances, including a dishwasher.

Finally, the co-op building offers an elevator, shared laundry, and bike storage. And the location is prime, with the southeast corner of Prospect Park just a few blocks away. Flatbush Avenue provides a main thoroughfare for the neighborhood and is home to lots of cute shops, too.
