There is a long list of reasons to love Park Slope, from the beautiful brown stones to the sense of community. While the Prospect Park – adjacent neighborhood have fairly high price tags, there are hidden gems that will not bring you back millions. Take a look at our Deal of the Week, 447 10th St. # 2B. This Park Slope 1BR in a classic town hall is elegant and refined, with its own dedicated parking space. And it goes for significantly less than the neighborhood average.
The Price: $ 550,000
The average asking price for a home in Park Slope is as high as $ 1.6 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at over a million dollars below average for the region!
Buyers who have removed the minimum 20% advance payment of $ 110,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $ 2,546. This includes a mortgage payment of $ 1,939 and maintenance of $ 607 – low by NYC standards.
Why You Will Love It …
This Park Slope 1BR is located in a classic brick town hall just a few blocks from Perspective Park. Better yet, the unit comes with a rare and precious amenity in New York City: its own assigned parking lot, in a doorway area right next to the building. Score!
Inside, a lobby lobby leads to a spacious open concept living room. The space is bright and sunny thanks to three huge windows that face the tree-lined street. There is another large window in the queen’s bedroom, besides not one but two cupboards.
But the kitchen is the cream of our Pact of the Week. Recently renovated, it has tons of storage, stone counters and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. There is even a very nice country sink. Home cooks will love to cook here.
… And Why You Can’t
Strangely, the larger of the two bedroom closets has no door. It is covered with a curtain in the list photos. However, this must be easily repairable. More problematic is the fact that this small building does not have its own laundry facilities. Fortunately, there is a laundry room just around the corner. And this Park Slope 1BR is only on the second floor, so there aren’t a lot of steps to carry that laundry up and down.
