The first thing that jumped out about this listing was its price, especially given its location—the heart of Dumbo, which recently was named the most expensive neighborhood in Brooklyn in a report by Property Shark

This two bedroom, two bath, 84 Front St., #8F, is going for $1,325,000, a relative steal when you consider that the median price for a two bedroom in the area is $2,350,000, according to StreetEasy. It also saw a $50,000 price reduction about a month ago.

The south-facing apartment features high ceilings, Brazilian hardwood floors, and central air. It also includes a private balcony off the living room and a deeded storage unit in the basement

The open kitchen has the usual high-end touches, including granite countertops, a large island, and Bosch and GE stainless steel appliances. For added convenience, there’s a double-wide pantry, as well as a vented Miele washer/dryer.

The master bedroom has an en suite bath and walk-in closet, and the description says it can accommodate a king-size bed.

The second bedroom, with two closets, looks to be currently used as an office or guest room.

The master bath includes a soaking tub as well as a separate glass-enclosed rain shower. The second bath, not pictured, also has a tub.

The pet-friendly building, named the Nexus, offers a full-time doorman, superintendent, fitness center, and landscaped common terrace, which includes a grill. Monthly common charges are $1,062; taxes, currently abated until 2022, are $191.

Nearby transit includes the F train at York Street and the A and C trains at the High Street station. Multiple waterfront parks are just a couple blocks away, as are several shops and restaurants, including Superfine, Jacques Torres Chocolate, and Brooklyn Roasting Company.

There’s an open house scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 21st, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
