The apartment, currently used as a two bedroom, overlooks the courtyard. 


This Prospect Heights two-bedroom, one-bath co-op has been renovated and still has plenty of prewar charm and details. Listed for $1,000,000, 418 St. John's Pl., #2D, has high ceilings, inlaid wood floors, French doors, crown moldings, and even unique antique doorknobs. 

The apartment has a foyer with exposed brick. If you close off the living room doors to the foyer, you could create a third bedroom.

An updated windowed kitchen includes new cabinetry, a breakfast bar, and oversized pantry. 

The apartment has a large dining room.

The co-op has lots of storage, including a linen closet, a coat closet, and California Closets in the bedrooms. 

The bathroom is in nice shape, and has white subway tile. 

Maintenance is $1,169. Building amenities include a live-in super, a common laundry room, bike storage, and a storage room. 

The apartment is conveniently located, with shopping and dining options along Washington, Vanderbilt, and Flatbush avenues nearby. It's also two blocks from Propsect Park.

The 2, 3, and 4 trains are three blocks away at the Eastern Parkway stop, and major the cultural institutions of the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library are all nearby.
