The price of this newly remodeled two-bedroom apartment, 162 Washington Ave. #4, in Clinton Hill came off by $90,000 about 11 weeks ago and is offered at $995,000. That's below the current median sales price of $1,212,000 for similar apartments in the neighborhood and it has plenty to recommend it, including a modern interior and a private roof deck.

The apartment is one of four in a converted townhouse, all in the same style. In a building this size, what you lack in amenities, you make up for with low monthlies. The building has a virtual doorman and some storage available. Common charges are $198 per month and monthly taxes are $212. 

Many developers in NYC are having to get creative to offload apartments so they can move on to the next project. That means there are incentives being offered. This apartment was priced at $1,100,000 when it was originally offered last May. 

The apartment has hardwood flooring. The living room is open to the kitchen, has three windows, and a small dining alcove. A picture frame of exposed brick on one wall adds some character. 

The kitchen isn't huge but has a waterfall stone countertop and backsplash plus European appliances like a Bertazzoni range and Liebherr refrigerator. 

There's some more exposed brick in the master bedroom. Both bedrooms face southwest, which is one of the best orientations for natural light. 

Both bedrooms have closet space and there's a washer/dryer in a closet near the second bedroom. 

The bathrooms have bronze fixtures paired with modern hexagon tiles, which add some drama. The en suite bathroom has a shower stall. 

There are no pictures of the private roof area, which appears to be accessible from outside the apartment. For transportation, it's a short walk to the G train at Clinton-Washington Avs.
