Which Williamsburg Condo Would You Spend $680,000 On?

New, 16 comments

Imagine you have around $680,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 96 Woodpoint Road #2C/ 139 Jackson Street #3A
Price: $679,000 $675,000
Monthly Costs: $212 $263
Square Footage 619 750
Beds, Baths: 1, 2 1, 1

↑ Since this apartment in 96 Woodpoint Road probably doesn't come with all those wall-mounted horns (a pity) the highlight would probably have to be its second bathroom. The double-height living room ceiling and significant natural light is also a plus, but the drawback is that the lofted bedroom is open to below.

↑ This third-floor walkup in 139 Jackson Street is a solid 21 percent larger, and also includes a little Juliet balcony off the (less impressive) living room. Much of the extra space is contained in what is referred to as a "bedroom" in the listing and "alcove" in the floorplan. While that room is windowless and tiny, it does look like it's accessed through a sliding wooden door, which is cool.
