Brooklyn Heights is one of the borough’s most expensive neighborhoods, but there are the occasional apartments listed for under $1 million. (Not that we’re saying that’s affordable, mind you.) One such place is this charming one-bedroom in Mansion House, a pre-war co-op building whose most famous resident is Lena Dunham. (She bought a $500,000 pad there in 2012, though her place was most recently being rented by designer Rachel Antonoff, who happens to be the sister of Dunham’s boyfriend, musician Jack Antonoff—phew.)
The apartment in question is a lovely renovated space asking $835,000. The pad has a sunken living room, an adjacent dining room (which, theoretically, could be used for a different purpose), and a sizable kitchen with a dishwasher. The brokerbabble boasts that there’s an "uncommonly spacious" bedroom (which is actually a fair assessment), as well as original details, such a hardwood floors and molding. Not too shabby for under seven figures.
