On a picture-perfect block in the heart of historic Fort Greene, this brownstone co-op is both lovely and livable–with two bedrooms and plenty of pre-war charm–for under $1 million. Located at 154 Lafayette Avenue and currently listed at $949,000, this quintessential Brooklyn home is only two flights up from the stoop and has the added bonus of a private rooftop deck.
An elegant marble fireplace anchors the living area. Nearly-ten-foot ceilings and oversized windows allow for plenty of sunlight. Built-in shelving makes for an extremely functional living space that can keep clutter out of sight or show off your book or magazine collection.
In the open windowed kitchen, a clever countertop can be extended to create a breakfast bar. Maple cabinetry and granite countertops provide the classic frame for extra perks like a 25-bottle, under-the-counter wine fridge.
A king-sized master and a smaller bedroom are tranquil spaces in the rear of the apartment overlooking gardens below. Custom California closets and beautiful built-ins make organization easy here, too.
A family-sized bath with double sink and plenty of storage can be accessed from both the master suite and the common hallway, and an in-unit washer/dryer gets its own closet.
The most covetable thing about this winning home may be the 300 square feet of private outdoor space just up a wide spiral staircase. Both roof and roof deck have been updated recently and outfitted with a built-in bench and planters in anticipation of cooking, entertaining, gardening (there’s an automatic irrigation system) or just watching the stars. A large storage shed on the deck underscores the ease of outdoor living.
