Co-op pick of the week

This sweet Park Slope one bedroom has a cherry red kitchen

The co-op is less than a block away from Prospect Park.


This one-bedroom co-op in Park Slope is a blend of classic prewar details and a dash of personality. Listed for $595,000, 915 President Street, #2F is less than a block from Prospect Park and close to Grand Army Plaza. 

Just so you know, the listing describes the co-op as "intimate and self-managed," so you will probably be taking out some trash. 

The living room has striking original wood columns, a lovely stained glass window, and wood floors with inlaid design. The ceilings are 12-feet high, and the oversized windows are south-facing and provide tree top views (the apartment is on the second floor). 

The kitchen has been renovated by someone not afraid of color: cabinets are a bright and shiny red, and the floor is a retro black-and-white tile. We don't see much of the bathroom, so maybe it needs work. (It appears to be yellow.)

The bedroom looks small but serviceable. 

Maintenance is $842, and the building has laundry in the basement and storage as well.

The apartment is three blocks from the 2, 3 and 4 trains at Grand Army Plaza, and about five to the Q at 7th Avenue and Flatbush. The location puts you near eating, drinking, and shopping along Flatbush and Seventh avenues, and close to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the Brooklyn Library's main branch.
