StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Here's where to find that outdoor space you're craving

By Sara Alessi  | May 11, 2012 - 10:56AM

Nothing sells an apartment with private outdoor space like spring (or summer). And this week's StreetEasy's Most Wanted--the 10 sales listings apartment-hunters on saved more often than any others--demonstrates the lure of the great outdoors, particularly in Brooklyn, where the indoor/outdoor combo is more affordable. 

For instance, you can see the Statue of Liberty from the large private roof deck of a two-bedroom, $675k co-op in Park Slope. The 4th floor walk-up--located in a non-doorman building on 8th Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets--has a new washer/dryer and the full bath has just been renovated.

Also in Park Slope is a six-bedroom (yes, six) two-family townhouse on 8th Street between Prospect Park West and 8th Avenue for $2.095m. The space consists of the owner’s upper duplex (five bedrooms, two baths) with a deck and garden access,plus an income-producing garden rental.

In a brownstone on the corner of South Oxford Street and Dekalb Avenue in Fort Greene, a $579k one-bedroom condo has plenty of outdoor space, with a Brazilian mahogany deck off the bedroom, as well as a shared finished roof deck.  Another perk: an in-unit washer/dryer. 

Over in Boerum Hill, a one-bedroom condo boasts a master bedroom with glass doors that open to a private terrace, plus two skylights. The $519k apartment, on the corner of Warren Street and Hoyt Street, also has central a/c and is move-in ready.
