The Price: $675,000

The median asking price for a home in Cobble Hill was $2.8 million this April, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced at less than a quarter than the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the 10% minimum down payment of $67,500 can expect to see monthly payments of $5,107. This includes a mortgage payment of $4,029, common charges of $542, and monthly taxes of $536.

Why You’ll Love It…

This unit enters into a generously-sized open living area and kitchen that’s flooded in light thanks to two oversized windows overlooking the building’s courtyard. Although there isn’t a formal entryway, there’s a closet in the room that can be used for coats or linens, which also creates a perfect dining nook.

The kitchen has been thoughtfully updated with white subway tile, black countertops, and new full-size appliances, including a dishwasher. A large island houses the oven and range, and is ideal for prepping food or sitting down for breakfast. But if eating every meal on a barstool isn’t your thing, there’s also plenty of room for a dining table.

The bedroom is more than large enough for a king bed, and also offers two sizable closets. You’ll also find similar oversized windows in this room, in addition to the en-suite bathroom. The windowed bathroom has the same black-and-white color scheme as the kitchen and features penny tile floors, subway tile walls, and a spacious vanity.

Located in a pet-friendly condo building, the unit comes with access to a laundry room, courtyard, and bike and stroller room. Cobble Hill Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park are both located within a few blocks, so you can easily access green space and trails without leaving the neighborhood. But when it’s time to leave the nabe, doing so is a breeze thanks to the nearby F, G, R, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, and C trains.

…And Why You Might Not

The building is located close to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, so you might get some residual traffic noise. Additionally, the building doesn’t have an elevator, but thankfully this unit is only on the second floor. But with all the space and modern upgrades this unit offers, it’s definitely worth bookmarking!
