The Open House Scorecard: Shacking up in Park Slope

Share this Article

If Park Slope is high on your list of desirable neighborhoods, you’re apparently not alone. The family-friendly nabe pops up a lot in this week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 apartments users scouring StreetEasy this weekend saved to their open-house planners more often than any others. 

Take this $595k two-bedroom, 1-bath co-op on Fifth Avenue and Second Street the market for $595k. Located on the second floor of a six-unit walk-up, it has a wood-burning fireplace, 10’ ceilings, exposed brick in the bedrooms and free laundry in the building. Maintenance is fairly low at $647, and the building is one block from JJ Byrne Park and the Sunday Farmer’s Market. But your pets will have to pass muster in order to move in. 

In a brownstone on Sixth Street -- between Sixth and Fifth Avenues -- is a $1.495m three-bedroom, 2 bath multi-family townhouse. The home is currently configured as an owner’s lower duplex and a floor-through rental. Since it will be delivered vacant, it can  also be converted into a single family home. Other perks are a semi-finished basement and a backyard. Plus, the mechanicals and windows were recently updated and property taxes on the entire brownstone are just $339/month.

Another popular 'save' this weekend was a $950k three-bedroom, three-bath condo in North Slope on Sterling Place between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. The duplex is located in an elevator (yet doorman-less) building with a video intercom entry system and central heat and air. There’s also deeded parking, but a waiting list for the building’s storage space. The private terrace offers access to a tree-shaded garden, which you can also access from the master bedroom.
