If you’re still working to make that first million, you know finding a cool place to hang your hat in some of the city’s more sought-after neighborhoods without breaking the bank can seem like an exercise in futility. Take heart, it’s not impossible! This lovely and light-filled condo at 670 President Street in the heart of one of Brooklyn’s favorite neighborhoods can be yours for a mere $525,000.
Named one of the “Greatest Neighborhoods in America” by the American Planning Association in 2007, Park Slope boasts some of the city’s most beautiful architecture and a diverse mix of residents and businesses, and you can take advantage of it all from this creatively appointed one-bedroom co-op.
The nearly 300-square-foot living area features an adorable windowed alcove perfect for a small dining set, and there’s plenty of room leftover to stretch out on a lazy Saturday morning or host a weekend get-together for friends.
An arched entryway leads from the living room to the centrally located and nicely sized kitchen, where lots of cabinets and counter space offer everything you need to get in touch with your inner chef without feeling cramped. In fact, that’s part of the apartment’s magic–how large and open it feels throughout, plus a surprising amount of storage courtesy of its generous closets.
An exposed brick wall beautifully accents the bedroom, where we’d leave that bright pop of lime-colored paint exactly as is. And we couldn’t help but love the small angled wall housing the room’s lone window which delicately fills the space with light.
This sweet little home is a wonderful opportunity to own near the best of all things Brooklyn–the Park, Fifth and Seventh Avenues, convenient transportation–and still be able to afford the area’s great shopping and restaurants.
