The Price: $730,000

The median asking price for a home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens was $1.2 million this March, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at 40% underneath the median asking price for the neighborhood, which is even better when you consider it’s a two bedroom!

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $146,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $4,680. This includes a mortgage payment of $3,823 and a maintenance fee of $1,037.

Why You’ll Love It…

This unit measures an impressive 900 square feet, so you have plenty of room to create your ideal home setup. Currently, the second bedroom is partitioned by a sliding glass wall in the sizable living room and features two south-facing windows. Removing this wall would turn the unit into a one bedroom and make the living room even larger. The setup works well in part due to the formal dining room and entryway, so the living room can truly be reserved for lounging.

The unit has gorgeous vintage details including inlaid floors, arched doorways, and decorative moldings, but also has some thoughtful upgrades. For example, the kitchen features a mix of glass-front cabinetry and open shelving that provides great storage space. The galley layout of the kitchen allows for tons of prep space, too. And we can’t forget the stainless steel appliances, including the holy grail: a dishwasher.

As if that weren’t enough, the kitchen also has a windowed area for a small table and chairs. Because there’s a formal dining area, too, this space could be used for a home office instead! No matter your wants and needs, you’ve got tons of options here.

The formal bedroom has a beautiful arched wall with bay windows and ample room for furniture. There are also two closets in this room, in addition to the two closets outside the bathroom and another in the entryway. The adjacent bathroom brings tons of classic charm with its tin ceilings and wainscoting, but the fixtures and tiling are very of-the-moment.

This unit is located in a pet-friendly elevator building with common laundry, bike storage, and a part-time doorperson. Plus, it’s just a couple of blocks from the Prospect Park Lake, so you’ll never be too far from nature. Transportation is simple with the B, Q, and S trains all nearby.

…And Why You Might Not

Of course, this unit isn’t a true two bedroom, since the flex bedroom doesn’t have a closet. Aside from that, there’s not much to dislike here, besides the lack of in-unit laundry. But at least you won’t have to take the stairs to get to the laundry room!
