The space may be modest, but the owner of this Prospect Heights co-op at 125 Eastern Parkway has managed to pack a lot inside. Decorations abound at the studio apartment, which is now on the market asking $349,000. It’s a decent deal for an apartment right off Prospect Park, and it certainly does boast some of its own prewar charm.
You enter the studio through a foyer lined with a pier mirror, a prewar detail most commonly found on the parlor floor of townhouses.
The living room–beneath the decor–boasts its own fireplace, high ceilings, the original oak floors, plaster moldings and vintage chandeliers and sconces. The listing suggests the space will “take you back to more elegant time,” but this apartment is unlike anything we’ve seen before!
The windowed kitchen has been decked out with extra storage space.
And the bathroom is just as decked out as every other room of the studio. It also has the original cast iron tub, stained glass and preserved floor tiles.
The floor plan shows the straightforward studio layout. Our only question: where is the bed hiding in this apartment?
This co-op is known as the Theodore Roosevelt, built in the 1920s. Today it offers residents a landscaped courtyard, live-in super and bike and private storage. Its biggest perk, however, is that the grand brick building is located right off Eastern Parkway, which was designed by Vaux & Olmsted and fashioned after the Champs-Elysees. From there it’s a quick walk to Grand Army Plaza and into Prospect Park.
