Location: Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn
This two-bedroom co-op, which sits on the second floor of the four-story prewar walk-up at 1149 Prospect Avenue, is a mere one block away from Prospect Park — more specifically, the southwestern edge that contains the Vanderbilt Playground, which has sprinklers, a giant geodesic rope-climbing structure, and a gated area for toddlers. The closest trains are the F and G at Fort Hamilton Parkway station, a four-minute walk south that passes a cluster of restaurants including Le Paddock, Della, and Cena, plus Poetica Coffee, a new neighborhood café with terrace seating.
Specs: 2 bed, 1 bath, approx. 850 square feet
Priced on the higher end of two-bedrooms in the area, this unit has a bright, recently renovated kitchen with stone counters, open shelving, a white grid tile backsplash, and white and natural wood cabinets. The open living area has enough space for a dining table, and the two bedrooms, although somewhat irregularly shaped, are decently sized as well. There’s a washer-dryer by the bathroom, which, like the kitchen, also has open shelves and white tile, in addition to a (coveted) window. You get hardwood floors, base moldings, and three closets across the apartment, plus a 160-square-foot basement storage space. Monthly fees come in at $766.
