The way out east Brooklyn neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach may not be known for splendid architecture, but this small standalone house is undeniably cute. Although it could use some work, the two-bedroom house could be a perfect summer retreat from the crush of Manhattan. The house is located one block off of Marine Park and, as per the listing, two blocks from a "sandy inlet for swimming, sunning and beach time." The sunny red-painted house is surrounded by a white picket fence and wrap-around terrace, where a little bit of gardening could go a long way. Its ask is comparatively tiny, too, at just $425,000.
