The railroad apartment–a classic layout across New York City–isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. Not everyone wants to bypass a hallway to walk through a series of directly connected rooms, but in the case of this Park Slope co-op, each room is especially charming. The floor-through railroad occupies the third floor of 719 Carroll Street, a brick townhouse that’s been converted into a small eight-unit cooperative. At 80 feet long, the apartment is lined with prewar details that include a bay window, decorative fireplace, and some exposed brick. It last sold in 2009 for $625,000 before hitting the market at $975,000.

The front of the apartment packs in the most pre-war detailing–including a beautiful fireplace with a carved mantle–and is fronted by a large, south-facing bay window. The space looks out over trees and the neighboring townhomes. Then you’re led into the open dining area and finally the windowed, renovated kitchen.

You pass the tiled bathroom to get to the apartment’s second bedroom, a cozy space with a window that’s now being used as an office.

The very back of the apartment is reserved for a spacious master bedroom that boasts an extra nook lined with closets. This private and quiet space overlooks townhouse backyards.

Building perks include shared laundry, private storage in the basement and a communal storage closet in the lobby. The ask of just under $1 million accounts for the location, between Park Slope’s main drags of 6th and 7th Avenues. You’re also just two blocks from Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza.
