This two-bedroom, two-bath duplex, 204 Monroe St., #4C, is a new development in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood and is being offered at $1,049,000. There are 10 units (all one and two bedrooms) in this four-story building, and maintenance for this condo is $341 with monthly taxes of $108.
The price of this unit came off by $100,000 about three months ago but it is still well above the median price of $845,000 for two-bedroom units in the area. That said, construction was completed last year and each unit is well appointed with large windows, central AC and heat, hardwood floors and in-unit washer/dryer hook-ups. This particular unit, one of the last three yet to sell, has a private deck off one bedroom and a balcony off the other.
Bear in mind that developers are increasingly keen to do deals as transactions have slowed in recent months, giving buyers plenty of opportunities to negotiate.
The kitchens are finished with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances including a Bosch gas range and dishwasher, and a Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer. The kitchen is open to the living room and has open shelving and under-cabinet lighting.
