Condo pick of the week

This new condo in Greenwood, Brooklyn is pretty, and costs a pretty penny

The apartment is in the Aaron, a new condo building.

Greenwood Heights, a.k.a. Greenwood, the hockey-stick-shaped neighborhood jammed between the Prospect Expressway, Green-Wood Cemetery, and the Gowanus Expressway, has been the site of a flurry of development recently.

A warehouse in the area was just listed for $20 million, and new apartment buildings are springing up, with ads touting their proximity to the the cemetery (go figure) and Prospect Park. The new buildings are a far cry from the humble, one- and two-family townhouses that are typical of the area. This one bedroom, one bath at 236 17th St., for instance, is in a new boutique condo building that is one block from the Prospect Avenue station (some might call this South Slope, another somewhat flexibly deployed neighborhood moniker).

Listed by Citi Habitats for $765,000, the apartment comes with high-end features and access to a bunch of amenities, including a pet grooming station, if your pet tolerates that sort of thing.




An entry foyer leads to the open living area, with large windows, hardwood floors, and an unobtrusive gray color palette. There's enough space for a small dining area, and additional seating at the wide breakfast bar in the kitchen, which is equipped with sleek cabinetry and high-end appliances from Bosch.



The bedroom is off the living room and features a large closet and oversized windows. The bathroom is located off the kitchen. It may not be the ideal layout, but the bathroom itself is an elegant space, with a floating vanity and a walk-in shower.


The floor plan shows that the apartment also includes a balcony overlooking Fifth Avenue, as well as a washer and dryer. The building has a virtual doorman, a separate storage unit for each apartment, a gym, and a shared roof deck. Parking is available, and pets are permitted.

The Prospect Avenue R is two blocks away, at Fourth Avenue. There's shopping, dining, and drinking along Fifth Avenue, including at the popular Roots Cafe.
