Price: $ 899,000. Assuming a 30-year mortgage and the minimum down payment of 20% ($ 179,800), StreetEasy estimates total monthly payments at $ 4,091. This includes the mortgage payment ($ 3,166) and maintenance ($ 925).
Why it is so popular: Park slope is always very demanding. The median price here is $ 1.5 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our most popular sale for April 5th at more than half a million dollars below average for the neighborhood.
And this Park Slope 2BR drips pre-war charm. It is framed in a double-barrel front sandstone building that is less than a block Perspective Park. The interior has many original molds, tin ceilings and a decorative fireplace. In addition, the bathroom features a claw-foot tub and a custom double sink built into a vintage dresser. There is also excellent lighting, with a living room with a window and three exhibitions.
One note on the layout: This is railway apartment, meaning that the space is long and quite narrow. It is currently set up as a 1-bedroom with a large office. As the rooms flow into each other, it will take some remodeling to set up a legal second bedroom – but it’s certainly feasible. The listing provides an alternate floor map to show what it will look like.
