An open plan and high ceilings give the apartment an especially airy feel. 


You get room on both the horizontal and vertical planes in this prime Park Slope two-bedroom, one-bath co-op. Listed for $975,000 with a $956 maintenance, 270 Fifth Ave., #3B, has 13-foot ceilings, northwest light, and treetop views from its fifth-floor location. There’s also an elevator in the building.

An open plan living area offers room for a dining table.

The living room has built-in bookcases offering lots of storage, as well as a wood-burning fireplace. 

The chef’s kitchen has been gut renovated and features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, and white quartzite counters. It also has a mobile island. 

The bathroom has been updated and has Carrara marble. 

The bedrooms are side by side. 

The co-op is pet-friendly, and offers a private storage room, as well as a laundry room with new machines. 


The building is located on the neighborhood’s lively Fifth Avenue, filled with dining, drinking and shopping options. The popular J.J. Byrne Park and Old Stone House are a few blocks away. You can catch the F and G trains at Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street, and the N, R and W at Union Street; both are about a 10-minute walk.
