Co-op pick of the week

You have to climb to get to this three-bedroom Park Slope co-op, but once you're there, you'll probably like it

Fresh off of a $65,000 price cut, we're thinking now's the time to make a move on this three-bedroom, two-bath co-op in Park Slope that's asking $1.085 million. In case you were wondering, the median sales price for a three-bedroom in the neighborhood is actually $700,000 more, and renting a three-bedroom in the area will cost you around $4,400 a month, according to StreetEasy. The reason for this much lower price may very well be because it's on the top floor of a fourth-floor walk-up. But for those for which a schlep up isn't a dealbreaker, it's probably worth checking out.

What drew us to this place, in particular, are the built-in bookshelves and the library "nook." Plus, there are both original and stained-glass panels that add character to the place (this is not a cookie-cutter apartment, and we appreciate that!).

The kitchen looks like it has a great amount of counter and cupboard space, and it's also got a new Fisher and Paykel fridge and a new Bosch dishwasher. The apartment also has a new full-sized, stacked washer and dryer. 

It's also minutes from the park and all the things that draw people to Park Slope—kid-friendliness, great restaurants, and shopping and more. Also, it's pet-friendly, so if your family is both human and animal, this might be worth seriously considering.

Note: You'll need to put 15 percent down, and monthly maintenance is just over $1,000.
