Yesterday we challenged you to guess the asking price of this railroad-style apartment in Prospect Heights with a quirky layout. While many of the guess fell within close range, non hit the nail on the head, though stache came the closest with a guess of $780,000. The actual asking price is $799,000.
We forewarned that the floorplan was indeed strange but that didn’t stop the complaints over the unorthodox, narrow layout. Commenter 1l225 called it “More of a tramway than a railroad,” while JEG10021 stated, “...the layout is terrible, and I don’t see how the kitchen has the stated measurements.”
While this two-bedroom, located on the ground floor of the building at 431 Sterling Place, comes with its challenges, it does possess a few good qualities. There is plenty of closet space, along with additional storage, and whenever things start to feel too cramped, you can take a stroll up to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
So now that you know the price, what do you think? Is it worth it?
Here’s one more look at the floorplan:
