The Open House Scorecard: I’ll have another (room, that is)

Thinking about adding extra rooms to your next home? Then pay attention to this edition of the Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open-houses saved more often than any others by StreetEasyusers this past weekend -- because it features a collection of apartments in which two bedrooms can become three-bedrooms

In Park Slope, a top floor, corner $639k two-bedroom condo can become a three-bedroom (the oversize master is convertible). The master bedroom of the apartment -- located on Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue -- also has custom built-ins and treetop and city views. The unit was recently renovated, and there’s a semi-private roof deck. Stroller parking is available in the vestibule of the three-flight walk-up.

Also in Brooklyn over in Prospect Heights on Dean Street -- between Carlton and Sixth Avenues -- another two-bedroom condo is convertible up to a three- or down to a one-bedroom. The loft is on the market for $649k and features 12’ ceilings. The full-service gated building has a children’s playground, grilling area, community herb/vegetable garden, fully equipped gym and fulltime door staff, among other perks.

By dividing the dining room of a new-to-market $1.595m two-bedroom co-op on West 86th between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues on the UWS, the unit can become a three-bedroom. The kitchen, pantry and maid’s room with bath provide additional flexibility. In-unit washer-dryers are permitted, but only one dog is allowed per apartment. In "pristine estate condition," it may require renovation.
