This bright Brooklyn co-op is worth the two floor walkup. The unit comes from the prewar, 16-unit cooperative 786 Washington Avenue, on the border of Prospect Heights. The price has gone up significantly over the years–in 2004 the apartment sold for $164,800, in 2014 it sold for $320,000 and now it’s listed for $510,000. Over the years the one bedroom has gotten updates, like mosaic tile flooring in the bathroom. But it still retains wonderful historic details that includes tons of exposed brick.
The three living room windows boast eastern views of trees and the skyline, while a decorate fireplace anchors the space. The exposed brick continues into the adjacent, open kitchen, which has lots of storage and some extra space to build out some more.
A light-filtering glass transom is located just above the bedroom door. The quiet space, which fits a queen bed, has its own windowed dressing area and additional closet. A large storage space above the closet expands past the bedroom and above the bathroom.
The bathroom was updated with a marble mosaic floor tile and new vanity. A stackable washer/dryer system has been tucked away behind the bathroom door.
The third-floor location means a quiet and peaceful apartment with views of the treetops. (A walk-up apartment isn’t all bad.) This location is three blocks away from the Brooklyn Museum, and a slightly longer walk into Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and Prospect Park.
