“Park Slope retains an aura of the past to an extent which is remarkable in New York,” the Landmarks Preservation Commission said in its 1973 Park Slope Historic District designation report. That old-world charm very much remains in Park Slope and its homes; and this condo, inside a brick turn-of-the-century apartment house, is the perfect example.
The duplex apartment, which sits inside a brick structure built in 1901—part of the neighborhood’s historic district—has a ton of cute prewar details, namely exposed white brick, bay windows, pine floors, and tin ceilings.
It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious living area, and most importantly, its own private patio (something that we are all craving right now), which the brokerbabble calls “a garden oasis,” with space for several seating areas. Additional perks include a dishwasher and in-unit washer/dryer.
The unit, listed with Katie A Feola of Corcoran, is on the market for $1.395 million. It’s located at 497 12th Street, between Eight Avenue and Prospect Park West. Taxes are $454/month and common charges are relatively low at $344/month.
