Two ceiling fans and a through-wall air conditioner keep things cool, which is important when living on the top floor. (Remember: heat rises.)


This one bedroom located in prime Brooklyn Heights looks to be in very nice shape and is in the center of a lovely neighborhood, but it's not cheap and you better be in good shape. Listed for $760,000, 282 Henry St., #9 is on the top floor of a nine-unit co-op building that dates to 1900. That means privacy and nice views, but it's also a fourth-floor walk-up, which could be a drawback for some. 

The apartment has 10-foot ceilings, and a large, east-facing picture window in the spacious living area, which can accommodate a dining table. 

Two ceiling fans and a through-wall air conditioner keep things cool. (Remember: heat rises.) Additional touches include Carrara marble window sills and solid core doors. 

The kitchen has a south-facing window, new Caesarstone countertops, and a travertine backsplash. 

The renovated bathroom features Thassos marble from Artistic Tile, custom medicine cabinets, and a Duravit sink with matching floating vanity. 

The east-facing bedroom can fit a king-size bed and dresser, and has custom built-in closets; the apartment also has a large custom-designed hall closet.

A shared roof deck that provides views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty is one flight up. 

Maintenance is $871 and amenities include storage, a bike room, and laundry facilities in the building. Cats are allowed, but no dogs. 

The apartment is located near restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as Trader Joe's and Key Food. Both the Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park are close by, and the 2, 3, 4, 5 and R trains can all be caught nearby at Court Street/Borough Hall.
