StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Climbing to new heights (Prospect Heights, that is)

Surprise! Brooklyn in general and Prospect Heights in particular are the stars of this week’s edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the top 10 sales listings those browsing StreetEasy this week saved more often than any others. So if Prospect Heights is up your alley, take notes on these family-sized apartments under a million bucks.

Let's start with a renovated $765k three-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on the corner of Park Place and Vanderbilt Avenue with maintenance set at an incredibly low $180 and reportedly set to sink lower, with shareholders expecting to receive dividends within the next three years, according to the listing. The corner unit has south and west exposures and a kitchen with granite countertops, oak cabinets, a dishwasher and a FULL-sized W/D. The pet friendly walk-up (three flights, to be exact) is four blocks from Prospect Park and has a common roof deck

A little higher up the maintenance food chain is a $599k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op is located in a full-service elevator building on Park Place between Vanderbilt and Carlton Avenues, is close to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens and has a 24-hour doorman and live-in super. It's pet-friendly and steps to the 2, 3, Q and B express train.  

Over on Prospect Place and Vanderbilt Avenue, you’ll find a new-to-market $699k two-bedroom, two-bathroom prewar co-op (pictured). Prewar details include carved wood moldings, a wood-burning fireplace and glass pocket doors. Plus you can look out at the neighborhood no matter where you are, because every room has a window, and the corner exposure in the living room overlooks Vanderbilt and Prospect Place. There’s common storage and laundry all the way down in the basement, and the apartment is two flights up.

Over on Saint Marks Avenue between Carlton and Sixth Avenues, an $849k two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is located in a four-unit brick building that was completely renovated in 2005 and is just a five-minute walk to Prospect Park. The apartment offers a private roof deck, and four large windows in the living space let the outdoors in when you’re too lazy to actually go outside. To help you relax even further, one of the bathrooms features a deep Jacuzzi tub. The building allows pets, and laundry can be done using your in-unit stackable Bosch W/D.
