Brooklyn Listings Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two Contracted


This week, a look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago focus on homes in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope. How did they get away with it?

With a layout that includes an alcove, walk-in closet, and ample dining hall, this Prospect Heights co-op offers generous space for a studio apartment. It is on the first floor of 230 Park Place in historic Prospect Heights. The sunken living room of this unit has wooden floors and a partial wall topped with display niches to separate a sleeping alcove. The wall stops before the two exhibitions, allowing light and air to enter the two spaces. This former cooperative of the day concluded a contract in September.

This bedroom on Orange Street in Brooklyn Heights still has its original spacious layout with a sunken living room, dining area, and hall that could double as a work-from-home perch.
