As one of the elegant pre-war co-ops at 47 Plaza Street West in the 1928 Rosario Candela-designed building sometimes referred to as “Brooklyn’s Flatiron” due to its pizza-slice form, this three-bedroom home has the gracious architecture you’d expect from a landmarked residence. The interiors, however, are a pleasant surprise of sophisticated modern design and contemporary comforts. The building’s location at the border of Park Slope and Prospect Heights is just as lovely, with the entrance to Prospect Park across the street. The home is now asking $1,699,000.

As one of the highly sought-after, elegant pre-war Park Slope co-ops that overlook Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza, 47 Plaza Street West was built in 1928 and designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela. Asking $2.4 million, this “classic seven” unit is one of only two that share an elevator bank. And with four bedrooms and a unique corner configuration, the gracious apartment feels like a townhouse–without all the stairs. Plus, high-floor status means gorgeous views of Grand Army Plaza and the park below.

Believe it or not, there are still some cases where your money goes farther in Brooklyn. Take this four-bedroom classic seven at 47 Plaza Street West in north Park Slope, a sprawling elegant pre-war co-op in the 1928 Rosario Candela-designed building sometimes referred to as “Brooklyn’s Flatiron” due to it’s pizza-slice form–which gives the home’s interior a unique, er, angle.

The 2,350-square-foot apartment has been recently renovated, making it comparable to the size of a modest suburban house. It’s one of those co-ops where just looking at the floor plan makes you long for a time when tiny apartments weren’t a thing (Yes, there’s a separate servants’ entrance as is often the case in these co-ops). And while the ask of $2.59 million might seem like a lot, a comparable Manhattan residence might easily be twice that much, if not more.
