Best Starter Apartments Vol. 3


The final installment for this period of the best starter apartments will take us to Brooklyn. This is a great area of town and as you can see from the prior two articles, you can get right in between the pricing of Queens on the lower end and Manhattan on the higher end. If you need a starter apartment and wish to purchase, but can’t afford Manhattan or a high monthly, then this may be perfect for you.

This is a fantastic new boutique condominium in Williamsburg Brooklyn. This is a hip and in demand area that is close to Manhattan and yet has its own sense of culture, shops, dining and great venues for nightlife. For the money, it’s a steal compared to the massive newer buildings with all of the bells and whistles. The monthly for common charges and real estate taxes is only $292 and they are allowing as little as 4% down.

Elegant lines, sleek textures, and clean surfaces infuse every element of this Williamsburg residence, inside and out. And it’s not just modern in aesthetics, but in conveniences too, with streamlining touches like video intercoms and a location just steps from eclectic shops, bars, and restaurants. Each apartment here is an urban sanctuary with windows that rise from floor-to-ceiling and eco-friendly bamboo flooring flowing from wall-to-wall. A sleek modern aesthetic defines every room from the open kitchen layouts to the spacious bathrooms. Some units offer private outdoor spaces, while all of them share a charming common back garden and rooftop deck with views over the surrounding tree-lined streets. Your kitchen is a true highpoint in design and detail, ready to serve dinner for two or a soiree for 20. White lacquer and frosted glass cabinetry and white quartz countertops provide a bright setting for storing and slicing, while a stainless steel appliance package including a wine chiller satisfies both your aesthetic and culinary tastes. Stepping into your bathroom here is like entering a sanctuary from the over stimulation of city life. The white glass and grey ceramic tiles provide a calm and cool aura to soothe your eyes and soul, while an over-sized soaking tub and separate, glass-enclosed steam shower provide options for how you’ll pamper your body. A white custom oak vanity adds a warm note as it enhances your morning and evening routines.

Outside your high-style apartment awaits a world of culture and convenience. Chef-run restaurants, emerging-designer boutiques, and trend-setting clubs are all just steps away. Even Manhattan is just minutes away by L train at Bedford Avenue or Lorimer Street stops. This is a fantastic place to call home and the amount of space can easily convert to a 2BR making for a solid investment.

Here’s the place, now contact us with questions, for more details or to arrange a viewing.

$1M NYC Tour Part 2- “No Sleep til Brooklyn”


Share

I believe the most fitting way to sum this up is “if you don’t know, now you know!” This is by far a better value than Manhattan. There are almost too many places to choose from. It actually warrants a separate set of posts for a Brooklyn tour. Trying to narrow the best options down was a lot tougher here even when focusing on the “prime” areas as opposed to Manhattan. Whereas rentals are comparably priced in those areas these days, the sales market is still a much better bargain.

In the end, I will present one co-op vs one condo in this post, but out of a possible 186 options, I still was left with 5 co-ops and 13 condominiums which far surpassed anything else on the entire Brooklyn Market. As with Manhattan, I focused on location, space, quality and the monthly cost when making my selections.

Co-Op

$925,000 1500sf Park Slope This is a sprawling 1,500 SF Pre-War co-op in one of the most desirable locations in all of Brooklyn… Literally steps to the 2,3,Q,B trains as well as Prospect Park. This beautiful apartment boasts a wonderfully renovated app. 300 SF chefs kitchen with vented Viking stove, marble & granite counter tops/island, breakfast bar, banquette, recessed lighting and loads of high end cabinetry. Currently configured as a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment, there is an additional room with French doors that can be used as a 3rd bedroom, formal dining room, media room or large office. Enter into the huge gallery/foyer to find 9.5 foot beamed ceilings, recessed lighting throughout, 12 windows, lustrous mahogany stained herringbone floors, built-ins, crown molding and original subway tiled bathrooms. Apartment also comes with private basement storage and though there is a modern laundry room in the building, the co-op also permits a W/D unit inside the apartment. This is a handsome, well maintained pre-war co-op, pet friendly with a live in super and P/T doorman. Apart from Prospect Park and express trains, location is also a few minutes walk to the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Botanic Gardens, Mount Prospect, Brooklyn Library, the Farmers Market and plenty of hip shops and restaurants in both Prospect Heights and Park Slope. FIRST SHOWINGS at the open house scheduled for Sunday April 3rd. For Pictures and floor plan via slide show click me!

Condo

$895,000 1425sf DUPLEX Seller pays transfer taxes! 1 Bedroom + Home Office + Mezzanine Space and style converge with stunning results in a spacious 1425-square foot loft duplex located in the heart of Williamsburg. Currently used as a two bedroom, the loft’s open plan makes it easily convertible and completely flexible.Breathtaking is the only word to describe stepping into this home with soaring 15′ ceilings and gigantic arched windows. Gorgeous hardwood flooring runs throughout the home and is complemented by the exposed beams in the ceiling. The open-plan kitchen is designed for easy cooking and entertaining with a translucent and white central island for prepping and casual dining. Miele stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry complete the tasteful look. The main bathroom is a modern sanctuary that provides the perfect spot for unwinding with its cool tile surfaces and over-sized soaking tub. Five closets in the bedrooms and halls offer endless storage options.Out the windows and from the building’s roof deck, you’ll see this is the location to be in Williamsburg. Nestled between two of its trend-setting avenues and yet just removed enough to enjoy a quiet setting, you’re never more than steps from fine dining and boutique shopping and you’re just one stop from Manhattan on the L train at Bedford Avenue.

These are just the two places which I have selected based purely off of being in solid locations for either sublease and/or resale potential investment situations. There is a wealth of great value in Brooklyn right now and much can be had for less. I wanted to give you a good example of what the same amount gets you in each borough. Do feel free to contact us if you have any questions, thoughts or feedback.
