This three-bedroom, two-bath condo in a new building is listed for $850,000. 


Earlier this week we compared the adjacent Brooklyn neighborhoods of Kensington and Ditmas Park, looking at their pricing, transit, nightlife, shopping options, and their general vibes. Laid-back, diverse Kensington has a wide range of housing stock, which is evident in the apartments and houses hosting open houses this weekend.

Here is a selection of two and three bedroom listings—condos, co-ops, and a house—that you can visit in person this Saturday and Sunday:

Located in a new condo building off Ocean Parkway, this three bedroom, two bath is expensive for the neighborhood, but lavishly outfitted.

The building offers a roof deck, laundry, and a bike room, and parking is available.
