The apartment has hardwood floors, three exposures, picture frame molding, and nine-foot ceilings. 


This two-bedroom, one-bath co-op, 38 Livingston St., #62, in Brooklyn Heights, is located on the top floor of a prewar elevator building. It looks big and bright, and has a great location that's close to subways and lots of the area's popular destinations. The apartment is listed for $1,250,000 with a maintenance of $1,302.

It's priced well below the $1,699,000 median for a two bedroom in the neighborhood, according to StreetEasy.

The apartment opens into a foyer, which has an entry closet. Other features include hardwood floors, three exposures, picture frame molding, and nine-foot ceilings. 

The flexible layout of the co-op has space for a living area and dining area; there is a walk-in closet off the living room. 

The windowed kitchen is renovated, with white cabinets, Caesarstone counters, a peninsula with breakfast bar and  dishwasher. (The oven appears to be missing. There's an empty space next to the dishwasher where you would expect it to be.)

Both the bedrooms are a nice size with large windows. 

One has a built-in bookcase. 

The bathroom can be entered from the hallway or the master bedroom. It has subway tile, a pedestal sink, porcelain tub, and a leaded glass window—all appear to be original.

The co-op has a live-in super, bike storage, a laundry room and private storage. Pets and pieds-à-terre are allowed. 


The apartment is near the 4/5 trains at Borough Hall, as well as the A, C, and F trains at Jay Street Metro Tech. Popular shopping and dining spots can be found along Smith Street, Court Street, Atlantic Avenue and on Fulton Mall. The Brooklyn Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park are also close by.
