Intricate, carved woodwork is one of those details that you’ll never find in new developments. A relic of the past, it can also be one of the most stunning features of an apartment. That’s the case for this three-bedroom co-op, now on the market for $1.25 million, at 560 Dean Street in Prospect Heights. Separating the formal living and dining rooms is an impressive ornamental wood transom. It’s paired with other prewar details like a decorative fireplace, the original wood mantle and oak flooring laid in a unique diagonal pattern. It’s true what they say, they don’t make ’em like they used to…

This apartment is laid out railroad style in a small, eight-unit co-op. At the front of the unit is the living room–lined with three large bay windows–and dining area. An architect led a renovation that blended both old and new elements in the apartment, leaving features like the fireplace, surrounded by tile and a wood mantlepiece, untouched.

The fretwork provides a lovely separation of space between the living room and dining area and open kitchen.

The kitchen (which was designed by a chef, says the listing) is decorates with solid wood, custom cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops and handmade tiles. There’s also a wine fridge among the fancy appliances.

All three bedrooms are located toward the back of the apartment. Nestled between the master and the third bedroom is an office space with a built-in desk, shelving and cabinets.

You can see the apartment gets three exposures–they’re to the north, west and south. This co-op is located in a building with only a few perks, like a dedicated storage unit and common bike storage in the basement. But it really boasts a good location, a block from Vanderbilt Avenue, two blocks from Park Slope, three and a half blocks from the trains at the Atlantic Avenue Terminal, and within walking distance to both Fort Greene Park and Prospect Park.
