It has lots of light and a nice little terrace, if that park access isn’t enough outdoor space for you
Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.
This appealing, well-lit condo is about as Park Slope as it gets, offering “leafy views, fine finishes, and coveted private outdoor space” steps away from Prospect Park. The railroad apartment, listed for $989,000, is hardly palatial, but it has a lot going for it, with 11-foot ceilings, a laundry room, and a terrace peaceful enough to temporarily forget the price tag.
The place opens on a “great room” (also known as a “living room”), featuring an extremely charming swell-front bay window with “sumptuous molding” and a built-in library ladder, to go with the built-in bookcases. That leads into a kitchen outfitted with the usual nice things—stainless steel appliances, granite countertops—and that gives way to the “second bedroom.”
Is it actually a bedroom, though? That’s up for debate: The floor plan identifies it as an “office/nursery,” which has less to do with its size — it’s actually rather spacious — than with the fact that it’s located in the middle of the house. Railroads!
At the back of the house is the master bedroom, which opens out onto the private terrace. Per the listing, it’s decked out with planters, latticework, and “an array of foliage,” and per the photos, it lives up to the brokerbabble hype.
