If you’re having trouble choosing between an upstate cabin and a Brooklyn brownstone–on a co-op budget–you’ll want to check out this one-bedroom co-op at 495 1st Street in Park Slope. The renovated parlor floor home is filled with townhouse glamor; there’s even a back deck for lounging. Instead of shelling out for the whole house, you can buy this just-right-sized apartment for $995,000. Comprised of the parlor level of a three-unit historic limestone townhouse, this cozy co-op has the elegant details you’d expect including high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a large back terrace.

On a leafy block a stone’s throw from Prospect Park, this charming co-op offers the architectural details that are so popular in the neighborhood’s brownstones and custom renovations where it counts. Add central A/C, a washer-dryer, and a deck big enough for al fresco dining, at a price nowhere near what a Park Slope townhouse costs.

At the back of the floor-through apartment, a spacious living area is framed by a triple bay window with stained glass transoms. This living and dining space opens onto the aforementioned deck overlooking the gardens below. Tucked into an arched cove between two closets is a charming dining nook. As for the kitchen, the renovated space has a stylish Catskills cabin vibe, with hardwood cabinets, a slate floor, a Bertazzoni stove, and a Fisher & Paykel fridge.

In the bedroom are a custom closet and south-facing windows with working pocket shutters. The renovated bath is a study in clean, crisp comfort with a designer’s eye. Just outside is a full-sized washer/dryer

The co-op’s entry hall has the proportions of a small room, making it perfect for a compact home office–or for adding an additional closet. There is additional storage available in the basement, and the co-op welcomes pets.
