StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Who says three’s a crowd?

Families with big broods seem to have been on the hunt for apartments this week, as StreetEasy’s Most Wanted--the 10 sales listings those browsing this week saved more often than any others--is populated by an assortment of three-bedroom and could-be-three-bedroom apartments across the city.

An $875k three-bedroom, one-bathroom (perhaps you can anticipate some morning traffic jams?) co-op on President Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, in Park Slope is versatile in that the third bedroom could also work as a home office. The floor-through is finished with prewar details such as crown moldings, pocket doors and a working marble fireplace in the living room and a decorative one in the master bedroom. Each bedroom has a closet, on top of two additional closets within the unit and one in the hallway just outside. The walk-up building has relatively low maintenance at $650/month, no underlying mortgage or flip tax, and a shared garden.

Over on Hicks Street in Cobble Hill, a $1.2m three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom condo features a lofted full height bedroom with walls and a closet, as well as a window to the interior living space. Located between Congress and Warren Streets in The Arches (an elevator building that was formerly the St. Peter’s Church and Academy), the apartment has oversized windows, custom lighting and central heat and a/c. And when things get too crowded inside, you can always step out onto the private terrace. To make family laundry time easier, there’s a Bosch W/D in the walk-in closet/pantry. A J-51 tax abatement expires in 2020 (monthly taxes are currently $18).

Though it’s technically a two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op going for $1.85m, an apartment on West End Avenue and West 80th Street on the Upper West Side can be converted into a three- or four-bedroom by dividing one bedroom into two and transforming part of the dining room into a bedroom, with space left over for a (smaller) dining room. The apartment, which features an eat-in kitchen and is located in a full-service art deco building, appears to be in estate condition. Washer dryers and pied-a-terres are permitted.
