It’s often said that you can’t change your home’s location, so you’d better love it; in that case there’s plenty to love about this colorful and cozy prewar apartment steps from Prospect Park, restaurants, bars and shopping on Seventh (and Fifth, Sixth, Eighth and Vanderbilt) Avenues and the 2/3/B/Q trains.
Though the location is fairly perfect, this junior one co-op has plenty of personality on its own, with prewar elegance, high ceilings, decorative moldings, French doors and gorgeous restored parquet wood flooring. “Junior” one bedroom translates to a studio with a separate bedroom area—more often than not somewhat less than ideal, but better than not being able to shut a door between you and your couch-surfing houseguest playing video games for eighteen straight hours.
With nine-foot-plus ceilings, plenty of light and brownstone garden views, there’s a serene feeling here, despite the room’s lipstick coral walls and crisp white accents. A decorative fireplace anchors the living area and adds character.
The kitchen is less than ample but, as the listing puts it, looks to be “efficient,” or at least sufficient, as it has all the necessary appliances (including microwave and dishwasher) if not the floor space. The listing doesn’t mention the bathroom, but we’re assuming that a) there is one and b) it’s not family-sized.
The bedroom changes mood to a soothing mint shade, and the same pretty parquet floor provides plenty of pleasant distraction within the very cozy space. We certainly wouldn’t complain about the spacious California Closet for keeping everything organized. Basement storage also helps keep clutter at bay (and there’s laundry in the basement as well).
