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.

Although Ditmas Park saw one of the largest jumps in home prices in the last five years— according to a recent StreetEasy study, its median recorded sales price went from $705,000 in 2015 to $1.2 million in 2019—there are still some homes under $1 million to be found in the neighborhood. This one-bedroom co-op that just listed, asking $499,000, is the perfect example.

The airy apartment has one bedroom, a living room, one renovated bathroom, space for an office, and a large private terrace. Some interior details include hardwood floors and new appliances in its kitchen.

The terrace has large planters and fits a large table and chairs: “perfect for alfresco entertaining,” the listing says.

It’s located at 400 East 17th Street, between Cortelyou and Dorchester roads, near the Q train at Cortelyou, and a 20-minute walk to Prospect Park. The building, which allows cats only, has a common laundry room and a bike room.

Maintenance charges are $856/month (with an assessment of $54.25 that ends in the summer of 2020). Lindsay Owen, Noah Plener, and Tamara Abir of Compass have the listing.
