The Open House Scorecard: Shacking up in Park Slope
By Sara Alessi |September 24, 2012 - 2:15PM
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.
