Park Slope has long been one of the most popular neighborhoods in Brooklyn, especially for its brownstones. But condo developments and conversions have been on the rise as well in recent years. This condo is in a building completed in 2006 and offers some of the coveted, private features of a house or brownstone.

In addition to having three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, apartment #1B at 485 18th St. comes with a private patio, a balcony, and its own single-car garage. It lists for $1,695,000, and at 1,775 square feet, is going for $955 per square foot—making it a bargain for the neighborhood. The median sales price for a three bedroom in Park Slope is $1,799,500 per StreetEasy, while the price per square foot is $1,120 per Trulia.

Though the kitchen, on the upper level, looks a little small in the photo, it is outfitted with Wenge wood cabinets, Carrera marble countertops, and appliances (including a dishwasher) by Fisher Paykel, Bosch, and Frigidaire. There also is plenty of room for a large dining table on the lower level, which houses the living room (shown in the top image), and has radiant heat flooring and a cathedral-height ceiling.

The en-suite bedroom on the upper level has access to a nearly 61-square-foot balcony. The lower-level bedroom is next to the private garage. There are Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout.

The en-suite bath has a shower; the other upstairs bathroom has a soaking tub. The half bath is on the lower level. There also is a washer/dryer in the apartment on the upper level.

The private patio is more than 300 square feet in size, and is accessed through the living room on the lower level. There’s also a shared rooftop deck.

The seven-unit building is fully owner occupied. Monthly common charges are $439; monthly taxes are $91. 

It’s located on the southern edge of Park Slope, a block from the Windsor Terrace border, and close to shops and restaurants on Prospect Park West. Prospect Park, along with the F and G trains at 15th Street, are five blocks away.
