When it comes to neighborhoods near Prospect Park, many immediately think of Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, and Crown Heights. But have you considered Prospect Park South? This small neighborhood offers equally easy access to the park, with cheaper price tags than some of its neighbors. Our Deal of the Week, 26 E. 19th St. #2A, is a perfect example. This Prospect Park South 2BR has plenty to love (spoiler alert: in-unit laundry!) for a great price.

The Price: $695,000

The median asking price for a condo in Prospect Park South is $769,000, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at $74K less than average for the area. And it’s about $250K less than the median asking price for Brooklyn as a whole, which is $949K.

Buyers who put down the 10% minimum down payment of $69,500 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,174. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,664, common charges of $489, and taxes of $21.

Why You’ll Love It…

You’re getting so much for your money with this Prospect Park South 2BR. Besides the two good-sized bedrooms, there’s 1.5 baths, in-unit laundry, and a fabulous kitchen. The sleek white cabinetry provides plenty of storage space, and there’s ample room to prep food on the white quartz countertops. There’s also a dishwasher and a large center island — a great place to eat breakfast or entertain.

The kitchen opens out to the living room, which features large glass doors to a Juliet balcony. Slide them open to let the outside in. In addition, an in-unit washer/dryer tucked is into its own closet in the foyer entry, where you’ll also find a sizable coat closet. And both the full bath and the half-bath are super-stylish, outfitted in hexagonal tiles with wood accents.

But the perks don’t stop at the unit itself. Our Deal of the Week is only a couple of blocks from Prospect Park and the Parade Ground. And the condo offers great amenities, including a fitness center and a rooftop deck with grills and lounge furniture.

… And Why You Might Not

This Prospect Park 2BR has a big window in the kitchen, but it stares directly at a brick wall. And the other windows seem to face another building, so there might not be a ton of natural light. In addition, the half-bath contains a toilet but no sink, which is odd. Users will have to use the other bathroom or the kitchen sink to wash their hands.
