You might think of split-levels as a throwback to your grandparents’ house, but when space is limited in a city apartment, the layout serves quite well for smart storage, privacy, and an open feel. All of these attributes apply to this completely charming two-bedroom at 69 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene. The fifth-floor spread has its public and private areas separated by a small staircase and it’s listed for either $950,000 or as a $3,500/month rental. To boot, it’s just steps from the park and Atlantic Terminal, located in the historic Roanoke Condos.
As you’re walking in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Union Square, it might not occur to you that you’re just paces away from a rather gorgeous retreat waiting to be someone’s home or pied-a-terre. But just a few blocks from the thriving landmark, one such adorable unit at 49 East 12th Street has popped up on the market, asking $1.795 million.
