This Windsor Terrace duplex is pretty unique. In addition to the main bedroom, the second floor is also home to a spacious, private rooftop deck. Its L-shaped wraparound style provides plenty of room for relaxing, dining, gardening, and sunbathing. Say hello to your new summer headquarters!
Meanwhile, downstairs, oversized bay windows take center stage. They overlook the tree-lined street and let in lots of light to the open living room/kitchen area. An elegant spiral staircase provides some separation between the two spaces. And if you thought things couldn’t get any more charming, there are also French doors leading to a sunny second bedroom. The corner kitchen features modern goodies like a dishwasher and a sleek mosaic backsplash. The bathroom also boasts fresh tiling.
Finally, our Deal of the Week is also located in a stellar condo building. It’s pet-friendly, it has a laundry room, and there’s even parking available in an on-site garage. Plus it’s just two blocks from Prospect Park Lake. What more could you ask for?
