Just north of Green-Wood Cemetery, on the border of Greenwood Heights and Park Slope, this two-bedroom condo is asking $899,000. The apartment is located at 259 21st Street, a 1905 schoolhouse converted into lofts. The transformation left this unit with original oversized arched windows and 12.5-foot-high beamed ceilings, and the owner’s creative touch added a cool wall of built-in bookshelves that frames both of the sleeping areas.

Take one look at the old-world wine cellar at this Park Slope brownstone, and it’ll make perfect sense that the owners are selling because they’re winemakers relocating to California. And the absolutely gorgeous home, listed for $6 million, also has plenty of places to enjoy a nice glass of vino, including four outdoor spaces. The townhouse was completely renovated, retaining its impeccable historic details, while adding modern conveniences and a wonderful, income-producing apartment on the garden floor.

Buildings like this one, Ansonia Court, are full of lofts will all the classic details–beamed ceilings, exposed brick, and cast iron accents. And though this unit is no different, its creative touches and charming little patio give it a bit of extra selling power. Listed for $2,180,000, the three-bedroom Park Slope co-op is spread over two floors and has bright, cheerful rooms.

If COVID has you considering the suburbs, but you’re still not totally sold, this $3.5 million Park Slope townhouse at 415 Dean Street might be just the compromise you need. It comes with a private driveway with a garage, so you can own a car for easy getaways. It also has a beautiful backyard that the listing calls “a Tuscan hideaway” that’s perfect for outdoor dining and large enough for socially distant hangouts. And when you want to stay in, there are three bedrooms, classical interiors, and modern amenities.

Built in 1893, this Romanesque brownstone is quintessential Park Slope. It’s been renovated over the years, but since most of the historic details have been restored, these modernizations have only made it better. Most notably, the whole cellar has been converted into a home gym, which is clad in the original stone walls, and the garden level is one giant family room with a second kitchen that leads out to a backyard garden. Plus, the entire third floor is devoted to the master suite, which opens to a top-floor terrace. Located at 178 8th Avenue, it’s just hit the market for $6,450,000.

The pitched lapboard ceilings, exposed brick, and cozy nooks make this Park Slope co-op feel like a little cottage in the sky. But when you step onto the rooftop and peer across brownstone Brooklyn, you’ll be reminded that you’re still in the city. Located at 16 Montgomery Place, the two-bedroom apartment has even more lovely perks, including a wood-burning fireplace, three skylights, and tons of built-ins.
