If you've ever wanted to have a country home right in the middle of Brooklyn, now's your chance. This Prospect Heights one-bedroom, which just went on the market for $549,000, has a rustic vibe that reminds us of a woodland cottage—but one with bodegas and a subway station nearby. The owners are clearly playing up that feeling, with details like a farm sink in the kitchen, Shaker cabinets, a vintage barn door in the 30-foot-long hallway, and—the coolest part—wooden walls in the bedroom that were built from antique barn boards. There's also a fireplace, exposed brick walls, a subway tile backsplash in the kitchen, and brand new appliances. The brokerbabble describes the place as having "the perfect combination of rustic elegance with modern amenities," and for once, it's not too far off. But is it worth the price? You be the judge.
