This 1,077 square-foot two-bedroom garden apartment at 206 Montrose Avenue on a convenient and colorful block in “hot, hot, hot East Williamsburg” has two spacious and quiet bedrooms with covetable closet space, plus two baths; there’s an amazing amount of outdoor space in the form of a big patio and backyard. And it comes in at (just a hair) under $1 million at $999,000.

Of course, no apartment is perfect; garden-floor homes aren’t everyone’s thing. But it’s where the garden is, and this one is a beauty. The kitchen, which could be bigger or fancier, occupies a corner of the living/dining room, but the living room is good-sized with pre-war detailing and 10-foot ceilings, and there’s plenty of sunlight.

The huge outdoor living area is in back, off the master bedroom. There’s a patio for entertaining and a grassy yard for gardening and walking barefoot.

Bedrooms are spacious, and the ensuite master boasts a huge dressing room. Even the smaller bedroom is good-sized; the home’s second full bath is just outside the bedroom, as are two big closets.

In addition to being in the urban-yet-quaint old-Brooklyn enclave of East Williamsburg, the L stops just at the corner, and the J and M are a few blocks away for backup during the dreaded L repairs.
