The six-story building also has an outdoor space. 


Eyeing the Brooklyn neighborhood of Windsor Terrace? This cute one bedroom, one bath at 140 East 2nd St.. #5F, has a lot of charm and a few little extras. Listed for $525,000 with a low maintenance of $566, the fully renovated prewar apartment has arched doorways, crown moldings, and hardwood floors. (It's currently configured as a two bedroom, with what looks like a dining area serving as a nursery.)

The generous living room flows to the bright kitchen, which has a custom backsplash and built-in seating area. 

The bedroom accommodates a king-size bed. The white subway tile is patterned two different ways in the bath, herringbone in the bath and offset in the rest of the room. The wallpaper accent wall is an attractive touch.

The co-op building has a shared outdoor space, live-in super, laundry facilities, and a playroom, as well as two elevators. It's also pet-friendly. 

The closest subway stop is four blocks away at Fort Hamilton on Prospect Avenue, where you can catch the F and G trains, and there are some shops and restaurants along that strip. Prospect Park is about a 10-minute walk away.
