Cool Listings, Ditmas Park, Interiors

The listing also calls this lovely one-bedroom co-op at 601 East 19th Street sweet, cozy and tranquil, and we have to agree with those adjectives, at least from the looks of this top-floor apartment in an elevator building in Flatbush-Ditmas Park. Freshly updated interiors highlight charming details both old and new, like original arched entryways and chevron-patterned hardwood floors. Best of all, the sprawling co-op has more room that you’d expect for $399,000–700 square feet including a very large bedroom, separate kitchen and tons of closets–all a short walk from the B and Q subways, cafes and shops at Newkirk Avenue and Cortelyou Road.

CAMBA Gardens Phase II, Dattner Architects, Kings County Hospital Center, Brooklyn affordable housing

Several years ago, plans were revealed for CAMBA Gardens, an affordable housing complex set to rise on the campus of the Kings County Hospital, located on the border of Crown Heights and East Flatbush. The buildings were constructed by the city’s Supportive Housing Loan Program in conjunction with non-profit CAMBA, which provides employment, education, health, legal, social, business development, and youth services to New Yorkers.

CAMBA Gardens I opened in the fall of 2013 with 209 residences spread across two buildings. Now, a lottery for CAMBA Gardens Phase II has just come online and is offering 110 newly constructed units in the LEED Gold building for individuals earning 60 percent of the AMI. These range from $822/month studios to $1,228/month three-bedrooms for households earning between $29,692 and $63,060 annually.

It rises from a former parking lot located near the renewed Loew’s Kings Theatre and another upcoming high-rise development by the firm Hello Nostrand. Now having ascended four floors out of its concrete pit, the 44-unit condominium tower will ultimately tower 12 stories and 140 feet over its cozy Flatbush community.

David H. Sherman, Benita Welch, 28 Waldorf Court, Victorian Flatbush, Ditmas Park real estate

We have a feeling well-known architects David H. Sherman, of Abelow Sherman Architects, and his wife Benita Welch, a Principal at Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects, will give the interior of their new home a fresh coat of paint before settling in…that is, unless they like the current bubble-gum-pink color scheme.

It makes perfect sense that the couple picked up this Victorian house in Ditmas Park for themselves and their two children, as Benita specializes in restoring historic homes, and David is known for his expertise working with NYC townhouses. According to city records filed today, they purchased 28 Waldorf Court for $1.41 million. Located just off Rugby Road (often considered the heart of Victorian Flatbush) on a highly desirable cul-de-sac, the five-bedroom home has been in the same family for 30 years.

Tour the home before it gets what’s sure to be a beautiful makeover
