BrickPicks: 2 bed/2 bath Prospect Heights condo with private roof deck & w/d, $775k
This two-bedroom, two-bath condo listed for $775,000 at 240 Prospect Place in Brooklyn is priced $75,000 higher than it sold for in July 2006, not an uncommon price trajectory for much of Brooklyn, including Prospect Heights. And there is a lot of charm to be found here: The current owners have installed a beautiful new kitchen, and the master bath seems to have been nicely renovated as well. Other plusses: Hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, pocket doors, a washer/dryer and a private 200-square-foot roof deck with views of Manhattan
While the bedrooms are quite small and closet space is scarce, the 1,100 square foot condo has both a living and a dining room in addition to the generously sized kitchen. Additional storage is available. The current asking price reflects a recent reduction of $20,000, according to StreetEasy.com.
