Cute Kensington House Seeks Less Than $1 Million

New, 9 comments

In the brownstone belt of Brooklyn, you'll be hard-pressed to find a move-in ready, single family townhouse for less than $2 million (and even that's a stretch these days), but travel south of Prospect Park and things starts to get more affordable. Maybe it doesn't have the beautiful historic facade of its northern brethren, but this little brick house at 158 East 8th Street in Kensington is listed for just $949,000. It has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large basement with a washer/dryer, and restored parquet floors. The foyer is connected to a sunroom with arched windows, which leads to the living space through pocket doors. The brokerbabble says that the kitchen is "updated" with stainless steel appliances and the large (46-foot-long) backyard is landscaped, but there are no pictures of either space.
