CONDOS & CO-OPS
415 Argyle Road #6T
List Price: $335,000, $597 maintenance
Size: One bed, one bath
Details: Judging by the photo supplied, this sixth floor co-op unit features gorgeous wood floors, windows straight across the walls, and a healthy bit of foliage outside for those who’d like a little extra nature with their city home. The cat-friendly building, which has a courtyard and parking available, is close to amenities on Cortelyou (any neighbors care to weigh in on noise from fire trucks on Argyle?). We’re curious about the $40,000 price bump on June 10, but you’ll have to decide if it’s worth it yourself.
Open House: Sunday, June 22 from 12-2pm (call ahead)
1735 Caton Avenue, #6A
List Price: $489,000, $363 common charges
Size: Two bedrooms, two bathrooms
Details: We saw two/twos in other locations this week hovering around the $700,000 mark, so on price alone this seemed like a relative bargain… but the listing says it’s only 697 sq ft. A number of large windows certainly make the place seem bright and airy and you will have outdoor space in the form of a balcony, but we’re guessing that extra basement storage included with the place is going to be necessary. The building is right near the Parade Ground as well as Church Avenue–an area that’s handy to transportation, food, and shopping, but has also experienced its share of problems in the past. Taking all that into account, what do you think of $489,000?
Open House: Sunday, June 22 from 12-1:30pm
827 Beverley Road
List Price: $1,189,000
Size: Six beds, four baths
Details: This Kensington border home features some of the details you might seek out in an older property, but has received some recent mechanical upgrades, too. There’s a separate first floor apartment if you’re looking for a tenant to help pay off that mortgage, and plenty of parking space for all house inhabitants in the driveway and garage–plus the basement sounds roomy enough for a workshop or ample storage, and the terrace will be the perfect spot to relax all summer long.
Open House: Sunday, June 22 from 2:30-4pm
1412 Ditmas Avenue
List Price: $1,800,000
Size: Seven bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
Details: Holy cow, this home is a stunner. The wood staircase with built in bench, the pocket doors, beamed ceiling, mantel, and wainscoting, the moulding around everything, and how about those inlaid floors in the dining room? Besides pretty, it’s practical–the kitchen has been recently updated, and the basement sounds like a very functional family space. Location-wise, this place is smack between transportation and amenities on Newkirk Plaza and Cortelyou Road–so you can easily go out for dinner, or just grab some food to throw on the grill in what sounds like an absolutely lovely backyard.
Open House: Saturday, June 21 from 2-4pm and Sunday, June 22 from 2:30-4:30pm
