↑ This duplex garden co-op in 645 Carlton Avenue was recently renovated, which is a point in its favor, as is the garden itself, which is lovely. It has a number of restored prewar details, a functional fireplace, bay windows, etc. There also appears to be a huge walk-in closet, although it's a little difficult to tell what's going on. In addition, it's on the Park Slope side of Prospect Heights.

↑ On the Crown Heights side, this For Sale By Owner condo in 225 Eastern Parkway has three bedrooms to the other place's two. It also has some nice details, and boasts "a hallway as big as a bowling alley," according to the brokerbabble.
