The Pitch: We are selling our 3 bedroom Park Slope co-op. Our two little ones have morphed into two big smelly tweens and it's probably time for two bathrooms now. It's with not a little sadness that we leave this place as it's been perfect for us until now. The subway is just as close as a suburbanite's garage and the second floor is aloft enough to be in the trees in the back garden but low enough for the short-winded. The roofdeck has seen much 4th of July revelry, providing an unbeatable view of the works, the gardens get better and better each year with more and more industrious neighbors pitching in, and Prospect Park has been the two-block-away giant reprieve from the city that makes us love the Slope, stroller madness and all.
Although we appreciate brownstone architecture, we're not incredibly old-timey, so we needed a place that could support our contemporary stuff. This place with its cool old columns and mouldings worked because it can also handle industrial touches like our DIY track-lighting created from hanging light globes and kitchen inspired by my high-school Science lab. The apartment is wide rather than railroad which helps I think.
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, April 5, 1- 4pm
Our 2nd floor, 3br co-op has a sensible floor plan and looks out onto gardens so you get no city noise, only birds calling.
Original architectural trim.
The common roof deck offers 360 degree views of Brooklyn and Manhattan for morning coffee, sunset picnics, and 4th of July fireworks. Building is very clean and quiet with kind, conscientious neighbors. Community gardening is an option if you desire. F Train 1/2 a block away, 7th Ave. 1/2 block away, PS 39 1 block away, grocery 2 blocks away, and of course, Prospect Park, 2 blocks away.
Ample common storage and laundry. Bike storage too.
Easy to show — we work in the area.
Will work with buyers' agents. No listing agents please.
