The high floor means less blocking the sun.

Built in 1956, this co-op building may not have the charm of a prewar, but it does have an elevator, laundry, and a wait-listed parking garage. Also, this two bedroom, two bath in the building has a balcony, hardwood floors, and lots of space to spread out. Listed for $799,000, 303 Beverley Rd. #8C is high up, with south-facing corner windows, so it gets ample light.

The renovated apartment has a large living and dining room.

A generous chef's kitchen has decorative tile, birch cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and a double-walled oven.

The two bedrooms are also spacious, and have several closets.

The building has full-time doorman/concierge service, an on-site super and management company, and bike storage. The co-op is cat-friendly, and co-purchases, gifts, sublets, and purchases by parents are allowed. Maintenance is $936 a month.

The F and G station at Church Avenue is two blocks away. The Q at Beverley Road is a 10-minute walk. Basic shopping can be done around the corner along Church Avenue, and there are bars and restaurants there as well as in nearby Windsor Terrace and Ditmas Park.
