Price: $875,000
Location: Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

This two-bedroom unit is on the top floor of 125 Eastern Parkway, a six-story I-shaped co-op located right across from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, and the 2 and 3 trains at the Eastern Parkway station. The 1923-built elevator building is also a short walk to plenty of restaurants and cafés around the corner on Washington Avenue, including Oxalis, Banh Mi Place, Tom’s, and Penny House Cafe. This particular apartment sits on the back half of the building, with most of its windows facing northeast (which get some wide city views).

Specs: 2 beds, 1 bath, approx. 1,000 square feet

The apartment opens with a 12-foot-long foyer, which leads to a living room on the left with an arched doorway, plus crown and base moldings. On the right, a separate windowed kitchen includes a dishwasher and space for a small eat-in area. Both bedrooms at the end of the hallway are unusually spacious, each with two big windows and a closet or two. Since the apartment shares a living-room wall with the unit next door — a one-bedroom, one-bath that’s currently also for sale (listed at $625,000) — it’s possible to purchase both units and combine the space into a three-bedroom. The pet-friendly building comes with a common laundry room and landscaped courtyard, with maintenance fees coming in at $1,241 a month.
