This Kensington co-op is big, bright, and has lots of style. Listed for $524,888, 415 Ocean Parkway #4C   features an open living and dining area, thanks to the removal of a wall. The one bedroom, one bath, is located in a prewar, six-story elevator building. 

The apartment has a foyer and large entryway closet, as well as parquet floors and track lighting in the living area. 

The renovated kitchen has a marble backsplash, Caesarstone countertops, custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and a large kitchen island; the living area is big enough to accommodate a dining table for additional seating. 

The modern bathroom includes marble tile, pocket sliding doors, and a double vanity, and additional closet space can be found just outside the room. 

The bedroom is big enough for a king-size bed, and has two closets, as well as a large armoire; the room gets natural light via two exposures. 

Maintenance is $787, and the building has a live-in super, common laundry area and is pet-friendly; storage is available but there is a waitlist.

While the address is Ocean Parkway, the apartment overlooks Cortelyou Road. Prospect Park is a few blocks away, and shopping and eating can be found along Church Avenue or in Ditmas Park. Transit options include the F train at Ditmas Avenue or the Q at Cortelyou Road, as well as an express bus into Manhattan one block away at 7th Street.
