If there was ever a time to invest in Bay Ridge, now is it. The charming suburban neighborhood in the southwest corner of Brooklyn has always been served by the R train, but as of last year, it’s also accessible via the NYC Ferry’s South Brooklyn line. And average sales prices in the area rose 10 percent from 2016 to 2017. Take this charming colonial home at 150 78th Street, for example. It last sold in 2013 for $900,000, and it’s now asking $1.5 million. Not only does the three-bedroom, freestanding house have a real backyard and detached garage, but it’s just two blocks from the beautiful Shore Road Park and Narrows Botanical Garden and the quickly-expanding list of restaurants on Third Avenue.

The home opens to an open living/dining space, the street-facing side of which is lined with tall, wrap-around windows overlooking the front garden.

Past the dining room is the kitchen (which could use some updating) and half bath.
