Curious about which apartments filtered to the top of the open-house circuit this weekend?  Then take a moment to peruse this roundup of the 10 open houses buyers surfing StreetEasy saved to their open-house planners most often.

Not surprisingly, several co-ops and condos in always-popular Brooklyn made the top 10.

On Broadway and Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft condo (pictured) is on the market for $675k. The prewar apartment features an exposed brick archway leading to the bedroom. The open kitchen has stainless steel appliances and black granite countertops. There’s central heat and a/c, four windows facing west and 13’ ceilings, as well as laundry on every floor, a common courtyard and a furnished roof deck. A J-51 tax abatement expires in 2017 (monthly taxes $36). 

For families, a prewar $699k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on Clark Street (between Willow Street and Columbus Heights) in Brooklyn Heights has been renovated and features new windows. The windowed second bedroom can serve as a child’s room or an office. The recently renovated kitchen has a dishwasher and other stainless steel appliances, as well as granite countertops. There are also arched doorways and crown moldings, a live-in super and views of Manhattan and the bay from the shared roof deck. However, judging from the photos, the apartment may be a bit view-challenged.

One subway stop away from Manhattan in Boerum Hill  -- on State Street and Flatbush Avenue -- is a $795k two-bedroom, two-bath condo. The bedrooms are equipped with in-wall a/c and radiant heating, and poured concrete floors help reduce neighborly noise. The kitchen has GE Profile appliances, and the bathrooms are adorned with marble. The building itself has a 24-hour doorman, a gym and a 421a tax abatement that expires in 2024 (monthly taxes $27).
