Prospect Park South 1BRIn NYC, living right near a big park is a dream that often seems unattainable, given the premium price points. But Prospect Park South is a great option for those who are looking for easy access to green space, reliable transportation, and slightly lower prices. Our Deal of the Week, a Prospect Park South 1BR at 15 E. 19th St. #1A, is just two blocks from the park and has plenty of room to spread out. Be sure to check out the video walkthrough on the listing!

The Price: $515,000

Buyers who put down the 10% minimum down payment of $51,500 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,640. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,404, common charges of $553, and taxes of $683.

The median asking price for a home in this neighborhood is $549,000, according to the latest StreetEasy Market Report. So this Prospect Park South 1BR is more than $30K below average for the area.

Why You’ll Love It…

The windows are the star of the show here, stretching from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling in both the living room and the bedroom. They practically guarantee that this Prospect Park South 1BR will always be flooded with bright natural light.

The kitchen features custom cabinetry and stylish KitchenAid black stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. It’s open to the living room, with enough space for a dining set in addition to the three-seat breakfast bar. A large closet offers lots of storage space in the bedroom, which can fit a king-size bed with room to spare. And the sleek bathroom is outfitted with a rainfall shower head and a deep soaking tub.

This pet-friendly new-construction condo building offers all the perks of living near the park, plus an elevator, a gym, a bike room, a shared roof deck, and more. Church Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, full of shops and restaurants, are also just steps away.

… And Why You Might Not

While there is a washer/dryer hookup here, the apartment doesn’t come with a machine. And its second-floor location near busy commercial strips means it might not be pin-drop quiet. But for 700 square feet of space on the inside and the entire park just outside, this Prospect Park 1BR is well worth a (virtual) look.
