Renovated Three-Bedroom Condo In Prewar Building Near Prospect Park Asks 899K

This condo is fully renovated and reasonably attractive, and seems a decent deal for a three-bedroom in a favorable location. It’s in a 16-unit prewar building at 355 St. Johns Place in Prospect Heights, in close proximity to Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

The three bedrooms are all amply sized and closeted, and there’s a good-sized living/dining room. The kitchen is small, but functional and nicely appointed, with white tile and cabinetry and what looks to be cork flooring.

There’s one full bath, also nicely appointed, and a second half-bath next door to it.

If it’s prewar charm you’re after this one’s not going to call your name. Any original detail is a memory, and the finishes in the bedrooms and living spaces are of the generic-condo variety.

There’s no washer/dryer, but there’s free laundry in the building, along with storage, bike storage and a shared outdoor space with a grill.

The unit — which is being shown at an open house from 6:30 to 7:30 this evening — is asking $899,000. That’s a steep jump from the $380,000 it went for six years ago, according to public records, but as we all know, prices have gone up in these parts, and a three-bedroom that doesn’t crack a million is an object of note.

Common charges are $484.77 a month, taxes are $535. How do you like the place?
