MANHATTAN — The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is considered a coveted piece of New York real estate. Here are three at a rage of price points with open houses this weekend.
188 Woodpoint Rd., #PHB, East Williamsburg
Two bedrooms/Two baths
Approximately 956 square feet
Common charges: $400 a month
Taxes: $50 a month
Open House: Feb. 28, noon to 1:30 p.m.
Lowdown: Besides two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this East Williamsburg condo comes with another huge perk: two private outdoor spaces.
On the main floor of the apartment, there's a balcony off the living room. “It's just a sitting balcony,” said CORE broker Win Brown. “You could fit little cafe tables or plantings.”
From the second floor, which houses the master bedroom, there's a terrace that faces east and south, toward Bushwick and Queens.
“It's big,” said Brown. “You could do whatever you wanted up there.” The current owners set up lounge furniture, a BBQ and planting pots.
The apartment gets tons of light, Brown said, especially from the glass doors leading to the outdoor spaces. The living room also has double height, 18-foot ceilings with two large windows underneath.
The owners were the first buyers of this condo, built in 2011. They've added central air conditioning and heat since their purchase.
This will be the third open house for the apartment.
Location: This development is located off Graham Avenue, which Brown called “the main attraction east of the BQE.” The drag is lined with bars and restaurants. Trendy butcher the Meat Hook is opening there this week. From the apartment, it's about three blocks to the Graham Avenue L train.
Why put it on your open house calendar? “It's the best price you'll find for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in Williamsburg,” Brown said.
