For those with the hearts set on Brooklyn Heights living but without an 8-figure budget to go all in, we present this 2BR/1.5BA co-op in a five-unit mansard-roofed building on State Street. The interior is renovated with modern fixtures and appliances, but maintains historic details like two fireplaces, parquet floors, and moldings to help retain a period aesthetic, while the decoratively carved exterior lintels set the building apart from its neighbors. The biggest room in the apartment is the master bedroom, which features floor-to-ceiling windows that look down on the unit's private garden behind the building. The second bedroom shrinks in comparison to the massive master bedroom—further reduced in size by an angled wall—but no place is perfect. The price is actually a shade under $1.5 million ($1,495,000) and there's no listing information on what the maintenance is for the 1,500 square foot unit.
