sunset park 2br

Sunset Park is a quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood that has gained popularity in recent years. Sandwiched in between Park Slope/Greenwood and Bay Ridge, with its namesake park and the Industry City complex as key features, this area has all you’ll need to feel at home. And our Deal of the Week can be that home: 637 41st St. #3B is a Sunset Park 2BR with lots of space and a great location directly on the park.

The Price: $565,000

The median asking price for an apartment in Sunset Park is $745,000, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at nearly $200,000 below the median asking price for the nabe.

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $113,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $2,451. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,891 and a maintenance fee of $560 (quite low by NYC standards).

Why You’ll Love It…

This Sunset Park 2BR enjoys plenty of natural light and green, leafy views out its park-facing windows. The apartment’s interior was renovated by an architect, and it shows — especially in the kitchen. Galley-style kitchens can often feel cramped, but this one is bright and open, with white subway tile and the same oak floors found throughout the apartment. There’s a big window in addition to a dishwasher, long Silestone countertops, and chic open shelving.

Each of the equal-size bedrooms has large double windows, one with a full wall of wardrobe cabinets and the other, currently being used as a den/office space, with a wall of bookshelves. The bathroom is bright, modern, and outfitted in marble tile from top to bottom.

Our Deal of the Week is located in a co-op that offers private basement storage space, a courtyard garden, and solar panels on the roof. And Sunset Park itself, directly across the street, boasts features like a swimming pool and sprinkler park, not to mention stunning skyline and harbor views.

… And Why You Might Not

This building has a lot to like, but it does not have an elevator. At least this unit is on the third floor and not the fifth, right? Additionally, commuting into Manhattan from this area isn’t the easiest. The D, N, and R trains are nearly half a mile away, and it the ride can take a while. But if you’re living the work-from-home life, like so many of us are these days, you’re golden. Don’t miss the video walkthrough on the listing.
