A Fort Greene three-bedroom that may convince you to stay in the city with your kids

It's not easy to find a true three-bedroom apartment for under $1 million in one of Brooklyn's more desirable neighborhoods, but here's one. This Fort Greene three-bedroom, two-bath has an asking price of $899,000, which is particularly surprising, since StreetEasy lists the median price of three-bedrooms in the neighborhood at $2 million.

Plus, it has one element we love for its rarity: a small mud room that's been carved out of the entryway (a mudroom in the city—talk about luxury).

The kitchen has custom cabinets, quartz countertops, pretty blue Moroccan floor tiles, a white tile backsplash, and high-end appliances (a Capital range, Liebherr fridge, Electrolux dishwasher—all with extended warranties until 2018, according to the listing).

Renovations include reclaimed built-in wood shelving, salvaged brownstone doors, and vintage light fixtures that give it all a funky yet chic vibe.

The building, part of the Kingsview co-op, a 1950s-style brick apartment complex that isn't exactly picturesque, is walking distance from Fort Greene Park, BAM, Barclay's Center, and all the major train lines—including the 2,3, 4,5,B,Q, R, A, C, F, and G. Maintenance, at $1,050 a month, is rather low.  

And the collection of buildings has 24-hour security, elevators, central laundry, and storage. The grounds have a playground, indoor and outdoor parking (with a short waitlist, per the listing), and landscaped gardens. Note: There's a no-pet policy.
