Welcome back to The Six-Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

Located in one of Brooklyn Heights’s most charming buildings—The Mansion House—this fifth floor co-op measures 835 square feet and comes with one-bedroom and one-bathroom. Incidentally, the apartment is just as nice as the building it’s in (or so we think, at least).

The co-op is flooded with light thanks to the six windows, including the bay window in the bedroom. The apartment features nine-foot tall ceilings, arched doorways, parquet floors, and crown molding.

The tiny kitchen might be the only drawback in the apartment, but the breakfast bar adjacent to it can double up as a work station if the kitchen proves to be too small. The layout allows for separate dining and living rooms spaces, and the bedroom is rather spacious and comes with two closets.

Whoever buys this apartment would (possibly) have Lena Dunham as a neighbor—she bought an apartment in the Mansion House back in 2012, though her place was most recently being rented by designer Rachel Antonoff.

The apartment overlooks the building’s landscaped courtyard. Other amenities available to residents here include a laundry room and bike storage. There’s also the added bonus of this building being just a few blocks away from Brooklyn Bridge Park. For all of that, the co-op is asking $839,000 with maintenance charges of $1,142 per month.
