Finding an apartment in NYC with more than two bedrooms – or let’s be real, even more than one true bedroom – can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. But believe us when we say you can find one, even if you don’t want to be too far from Manhattan. If you still need convincing, take a look at our Deal of the Week: 337 Lincoln Rd. #4R, a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Not only does it offer a ton of space, but also lots of great amenities (including in-unit laundry!) for an even better price.
The Price: $775,000
The median asking price for a home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens was $800,000 as of February 2022, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means even though this apartment has three bedrooms, it’s still below the median asking price for the neighborhood!
Buyers who stick with the 20% minimum down payment of $155,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,905. This includes a mortgage payment of $3,190, common charges of $465, and monthly taxes of $250.
Why You’ll Love it…
Let’s discuss the most important feature of this condo first: the in-unit washer/dryer. The new, stacked Bosch set is tucked right beside the main bathroom for convenience. Just a few feet away you’ll find the open living and kitchen area complete with new hardwood floors and ample cabinet space. Whitewashed brick adds a nice touch and perfectly complements the white subway tile backsplash. And you’ve gotta love the dishwasher, too.
On one side of the living area you’ll find the primary suite, featuring a spacious closet and renovated bathroom. The en-suite bathroom boasts a walk-in shower with a rainfall showerhead and sleek touches of black. But the real star of the bedroom is the built-in window seat, which creates the perfect lounging area.
Down the hall past the living room and kitchen are the second bathroom and the two other bedrooms for maximum privacy. Each bedroom has its own closet and window, making this a true 3-bedroom apartment!
The condo also comes with its own storage space within the building. Plus, the building is pet-friendly and has bike storage. The location is great too, with the 2/5 trains just a couple of blocks away at Sterling Street. Plus, Nostrand Avenue is less than 300 feet away and lined with great eateries like Empanada City and Allan’s Bakery.
… And Why You Might Not
There are always drawbacks to living in a historic building. This unit is located on the fourth (and top) floor of a walk-up. Plus, the third bedroom is definitely on the smaller side, so it may be best used as a nursery, guest room, or home office. But it does still have a window and a closet! Lastly, all windows in this unit are on the north-facing side, meaning you won’t get great direct sunlight throughout the day.
However, if you’re looking for a condo with lots of space and a stellar location, be sure to shortlist this one!
