Sunset Park isn’t a neighborhood particularly known for its grand co-op buildings, but this two-bedroom apartment comes from 570 44th Street, a 16-unit co-op built in 1914. The listing calls the building “one of the first Finnish co-ops in Sunset Park.” In case you didn’t know, parts of Sunset Park in the early 20th century were commonly known as “FinnTown,” and the Finnish population built around 25 co-ops here. The building comes with original moldings and stained glass windows in the hallway. And this ground-floor apartment, which has just hit the market for $520,000, boasts some lovely details and quirks of its own.

Here’s the front view of the apartment, which faces street level. The ground-floor location might not be ideal, but it comes with a little outdoor space that’s fit for gardening, and also gets those lovely arched windows. The windows look out onto Sunset Park (the actual park), which is across the street. Inside, there are exposures to the north, south and east.

The windowed, eat-in kitchen has been renovated but boasts one of the quirkiest stoves we’ve ever seen. This apartment gets plenty of points for personality.

The master bedroom is right off the living room and it benefits from one the large arched windows that decorate the front facade. The second bedroom, too, gets a nice arched window. Other interior details throughout the apartment include moldings and the original pine floors. The building doesn’t have much in the way of amenities–there’s storage and a laundry room in the basement–but it’s got a super low monthly maintenance of $510.
