If prewar detail is your thing, this two-bedroom, two-bath apartment, 414 Stuyvesant Ave., #2, in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn, should fit the bill with dark woodwork, high coffered ceilings, and hardwood floors.

The no-fee apartment is listed at $2,950, which is a bit higher than the neighborhood’s median for two bedrooms, currently $2,498, according to StreetEasy. But, from the looks of the listing photos, you’re getting tons of space for your money.

The apartment is on the second-floor of a three-story, landmarked limestone, which was built in 1899. Some of the other standout prewar features include a clawfoot tub in one of the baths, large windows (with eastern and western exposure), and a dressing room.

The kitchen lacks in counter- and cabinet-space, but there’s room to add an island—plus two windows.

One of the bedrooms is separated by pocket doors, making it easily convertible for other uses, like a home office.  

The building is on a block that was voted Brooklyn’s “greenest” back in 2017.

You’re only one block from the A and C subway lines, making the commute to Midtown Manhattan just over 30 minutes. Nearby eateries include Peaches and Doc’s Cake Shop and there’s a family-owned, year-round nursery called Seasons nearby.
