In the market for a new place to call home? It might be a holiday weekend, but there are still a few open houses taking place in the neighborhood. From a townhouse whose price continues to drop, to a studio apartment just off Prospect Park, we’ve rounded up a few of them and have broken down the offerings below. What do you think?
41 Montgomery Place
Open House: Saturday, May 24, 11:30am-1pm
List Price: $3,500,000, via Citi Habitats
Details: A chance to own a 5-bed, 2.5-bath townhouse on a sweet little single-block street just off the park. It might need a little updating, in the event that green wall-to-wall carpeting isn’t your thing, but the carpeting has apparently preserved the floors very well, as the owners told the Daily News when they put the home, originally purchased for $20,000 in 1966. The asking price has come down by an additional $200k since we last looked at it in March — when it had just been reduced by $300k.
219 St Johns Place, #2
Open House: Sunday, May 25, 2:30-4pm
List Price: $1,100,000, common charges $204, via Corcoran
Details: This 2-bed, 2-bath condo (pictured above) in a townhouse is convenient to the subways at 7th Avenue and at Grand Army Plaza. The two bathrooms are explained by a 2009 gut renovation which transformed the space, and added central air conditioning, a washer/dryer, and updated everything else.
195 Garfield Place, #1D
Open House: Sunday, May 25, 1-3pm
List Price: $529,000, maintenance $916, via Orrichio Anderson Realty
Details: If you’re looking for outdoor space, this 1-bed, 1-bath co-op has a private deck and a private garden, which don’t appear to be enormous, but do seem like a nice place to enjoy a meal in the summer. The ground-floor unit is in a building that has a laundry room, and pets are allowed.
938 President Street, #1
Open House: Sunday, May 25, 3:30-4:30pm
List Price: $300,000, maintenance $364, via VORO Realty
Details: French doors help separate the kitchen from the living space in this 400-square-foot studio in a co-op building located about a half a block from Prospect Park. The board is looking for someone to live in this space, so if you’re just looking for an investment that you hope to rent out, this one isn’t for you.
