21 South Portland Avenue #GR
List Price: $799,000; maintenance/common charges: $691
Size: One bedroom, one bathroom
Details: Only two photos to go by, but it’s a nice looking place. Located just a half block from Fort Greene Park, this delightful one-bedroom on a block once voted the best block in all of NYC by “Time Out NY” is located on the garden-level of a beautifully-maintained five-story brownstone. The floor plan is wide open and offers a glut of decorating and furniture-arranging possibilities. Japanese shoji screens in the living room mask a wall of great storage including built-in bookshelves, the wall of reclaimed wood “wallpaper” and dark-stained wood floors give the apartment a Zen-inspired feel. The building has free laundry and storage space, and is also pet-friendly. Located in close proximity to a dozen subway lines and the LIRR terminal.

230 Ashland Place #12B
List Price: $800,000; maintenance/common charges: $620
Size: One bedroom, one bathroom
Details: This cozy, yet luxurious condo offers unbeatable views of Fort Greene Park and, given the blazing hot reemergence of this neighborhood in the real estate market, it also offers unbeatably low maintenance charges. The large living room combined with the contemporary and open suburban-sized kitchen makes a perfect spot for entertaining your guests. An open, eat-in kitchen is gorgeous in its simplicity and convenience, and boasts spacious granite countertops, stainless steel GE profile appliances, in-sink garbage disposal and custom cabinets. A king-sized bed will easily fit into the bright and airy east-facing bedroom, and in the water closet department, you’ll fall in love with the marble tile bath with slate floors and oversize soaking tub. Did we mention there is also a full-size stacking washer/dryer, so you don’t have to schlep your clothes to the Laundromat, as well as ample closet space, and hardwood oak floors and oversized windows? No? Well, there’s that too. All located in the north end of the expanding BAM Cultural District, and in close proximity to Fort Greene Park, the Barclays Center, and the Atlantic Terminal — home to 11 subway lines, the Long Island Railroad’s Brooklyn terminal and a new suburban style shopping mall.
