In the heart of the lovely neighborhood of Fort Greene, Brooklyn at 141 Lafayette Avenue, just a block from Fort Greene Park and a few minutes from BAM, this graciously-sized and thoughtfully-appointed pre-war co-op is asking $995,000. With two real bedrooms, central A/C, and a nice renovation, that seems like a pretty good deal for this pricey neighborhood.

In the living/dining room, details like a decorative fireplace, original crown moldings, built-in bookcases and parquet floors make the space feel like home. One negative: no elevator. A plus: an in-unit washer and dryer (plus laundry in the building).

Classic pre-war casement windows bring in plenty of sunlight. A renovated kitchen is both space-saving and chef-friendly; a wood-topped island and plenty of storage accompany a clever refrigerator/freezer drawer concealed below deck. White Corian counters line the walls and stainless steel appliances include a Bosch dishwasher.

The master bedroom and second bedroom are on the quiet rear side of the apartment overlooking the building’s shared interior garden.

A clean, well-designed–and well-placed for a one-bath apartment–bathroom done in white and pale blue glass tiles features a Duravit sink and a soaking tub. Throughout the home, you’ll find five large closets.

An English-style garden at the back of the building offers seating areas and a grill for relaxing, dining and entertaining. There is also more storage available in the basement of this landmarked, brick-fronted (and pet-friendly) co-op building.
