Small Wonder

This prewar Park Slope studio is the ideal Brooklyn "starter apartment"

A first-time buyer looking to climb onto the property ladder—and put down some roots in one of Brooklyn's most sought-after neighborhoods—might want to consider snapping up this classic little Park Slope studio ASAP.

The apartment retains plenty of prewar details, including high ceilings, hardwood floors, an archway separating the living room from the sleeping alcove, and original wall moldings. The yellow paint picked out by the current owner also gives the apartment a bright, cozy feeling.

The kitchen isn't especially spacious, and it would appear that there's only room for a mini fridge, though you'll want to visit and investigate for yourself. (You'll also want to take a close look at the bathroom, since it's not pictured in the listing.)

Pets are welcome in this small, six-unit building, but take note that pied-a-terres and investment purchases are a no-go; the building is only looking for buyers who plan to actually live in this apartment. At an asking price of $335,000, it's a relatively affordable way to stake out a piece of Park Slope that you can call your own, if the tiny kitchen isn't a deal-breaker.
