CONDOS & CO-OPS
50 Kenilworth Place, Apt 2L
List Price: $98,000, $367 maintenance
Size: Studio, one bathroom
Details: This place near Brooklyn College and the Junction isn’t exactly roomy, but it could be a great opportunity for someone who lives light and plans to stick around a while. You’ll have wood floors and a separate kitchen (though whether you can turn all the way around in it remains to be seen), and there’s in-building laundry–plus, when was the last time you saw a place in Brooklyn in the five-digit range?
Open House: Sunday, June 1 from 12-2pm
1138 Ocean Avenue, Apt 5F
List Price: $699,000, $592 common charges
Size: Three beds, two baths
Details: Okay, here’s somewhere with a little more square footage–we don’t often see three bed condos or co-ops on the market around here! Enjoy cooking in your ginormous kitchen (really, just spread those ingredients as far across all your counter space as you possibly can) lounge on one of your two corner unit balconies, play in the building’s communal yard area or fitness center, catch the train easily at Newkirk Plaza, host holiday meals in your formal dining space, and give your in-unit washer and dryer a hug for preventing you ever having to drag 400 pounds of dirty clothes to a laundromat again.
Open House: Sunday, June 1 from 12:30-2pm
1709 Glenwood Road
List Price: $1,475,000
Size: Seven beds, 3.5 baths
Details: Nestled on a block just tucked in from Foster and Ocean Avenues and the B/Q tracks, this classic home could offer the perfect respite from city life. It’s got some fabulous original details and some mean wood paneling game, including a basement bar for when you need a little Don Draper time. Gorgeous and throwback-y as it is, though, it could clearly use some upgrades, and the listing says it needs TLC.
Open House: Sunday, June 1 from 12-1:30pm
91 Marlborough Road
List Price: $2,388,000
Size: Six beds, 3.5 baths
Details: This home just south of Church is super pricey, and also super cool. You’ve got some lovely wood columns inside and out, a wraparound porch, an incredible sunroom, stained glass windows, a turret–even the ironwork below the porch is stunning. Again, though, a look at the kitchen reveals some renovations are in order. Taking all that into account, do you think it will break the area record of $2.2M?
Open House: Sunday, June 1 from 2-4pm
