We know that in a lot of places around the country–even just upstate–$395,000 can buy you a pretty nice house. But here in NYC, we get excited when a studio in a nice neighborhood is asking that price. A charming but modest co-op at 361 Sterling Place in Prospect Heights has hit the market for that very number and will likely be snatched up soon.

The small pre-war space packs in an impressive amount of charm: exposed brick, faux fireplace, the original hardwood floors. There’s just enough room for a bed, couch and desk–although with some creativity you may be able to fit a dining table.

A new washer and dryer unit was added to the windowed kitchen. Currently, it only fits a mini fridge, although there’s a good amount of storage and pantry space. Again, this tight space may require a bit of creativity from the buyer.

Really, the appeal is the location. Situated on the corner of Sterling Place and Underhill Avenue, the prewar co-op is within a short walking distance to Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

A studio space isn’t so bad to a New Yorker, of course; you just may need to hire a good architect to help you out!
