If you enjoy whipping up your own meals (at least some of the time), you probably want your kitchen to be in tip-top shape. So put down your spatula, pick up a pen and take notes on this week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their calendars more often than any others.
This roundup features a set of apartments in Brooklyn and Manhattan with renovated, top-notch kitchens.
On Lafayette and Carlton Avenues in Fort Greene, a bright, gorgeous $625k two-bedroom brownstone co-op features an open kitchen with gray Caesarstone counters, new stainless steel appliances, an Italian Smeg stove, Italian marble backsplash, oak cabinets and two arch-top windows. A separate boiler and hot water heater serve this completely renovated corner unit. Cats are allowed, as are dogs, but approval is required. Downsides: The apartment is a 4th floor walk-up (laundry in the basement) and the $1,203/month maintenance seems on the high side for a non-doorman building in the area.
Back in Manattan, in Midtown South, a two-bedroom condo on the market for $1.15m has a renovated kitchen featuring new cabinets, quartz countertops, a Bosch microwave, built-in DW, Kitchen-Aid stainless gas range, plus all-new tile floors, backsplash, hardware and faucets. Located in the LexParc on 30th Street between Park Avenue South and Lexington Avenue, the unit is two blocks from the 6 train and has in-wall a/c units, a private balcony and an in-unit W/D hookup. Potential buyers must be pre-approved for financing and a down-payment of 20% is required.
The kitchen in an $875k three-bedroom condo on Sterling Place – between Seventh and Flatbush Avenues in Park Slope sports custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, as well as hardwood floors.The apartment also has new wiring, plumbing and heating systems. A Jacuzzi rounds out the master suite. In traditional Brooklyn style, this one’s a walk-up (but only to the 2nd floor). Pied-a-terres are welcome.
