Living in Prospect Park is very convenient and highly desirable – especially in pandemic times, when everyone craves fresh air and open spaces. Unfortunately, it is also usually very expensive. But our Agreement of the Week, 527 Oka Skt. # 4B, proves that Brooklyns can have both a stellar location and blinding price. This inviting Park Slope 1BR sits just half a block away from the park, and has a much lower cost than you might think.
The Price: $ 549,000
The average asking price for a home in Park Slope is $ 1.4 million, according to the Street Data Panel. That puts our Deal of the Week around $ 850K below the average for this beloved neighborhood.
Buyers who submit the minimum 20% down payment of $ 109,800 can expect monthly payments of $ 2,519. This includes a $ 1,866 mortgage payment and a $ 653 maintenance fee – low by NYC standards.
Why You Will Love It …
Just half a street away from Prospect Park, our Deal of the Week is located not only on a tree-lined street but on “The Greenest Block in Brooklyn.” (This is according to an undisputed authority on greenery: the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.)
It begins with a long entrance hall that shows a large, two-door closet. The hallway passes by the bathroom and bedroom before opening onto a spacious living room. Parquet floors, high ceilings and pre-war molding make this a welcome space, with stained glass creating a unique focus. The stained glass window leads to the queen-sized bedroom – but don’t worry, it’s not the only window in both rooms! It’s just a fun, decorative touch on the interior wall. The charm continues in the bright edible kitchen, with a very large country sink. It also has quartz tops, custom furniture and one of the holy grails of apartments in New York City: a dishwasher.
This Park Slope 1BR is set in a pet friendly cooperative with laundry, bike storage and additional storage. The F and G are just a few steps away from the building. In addition, there is there is no shortage of restaurants on nearby Seventh Avenue.
… And Why You Can’t
Unfortunately, this unit is three stories upstairs in a walking building. And while there’s a vast overcoat at the entrance, there it is no bedroom closet. In fact there are no other closets in the unit at all. But if you’re looking for a great parkside location at a great price, be sure to list this one.
