Live Close To Nature: Top Five Homes For Sale Near Prospect Park

Prospect Park can help take the sting out of city living. Check out five homes for sale right nearby.

By Team Agorafy October 7, 2016

Nothing screams “I made it in NYC” like a Central Park view from one’s living room window.

Alas, unless you belong to the infamous one percent who can easily splash $3,000 and up per each square foot, that glorious Central Park-overlooking condo might be just out of your league. But don’t despair, you can still own a property with park views and morning promenades without breaking the bank. Just not Central Park. And yes, you will still have to break open your piggy bank.

Here at Agorafy, we compiled a list of homes for sale that are literally a stone’s throw from another famous NYC escape—Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. You can keep your skyscrapers and tourists Manhattan, thank you very much. We’ll take the quiet, leafy soul of Brooklyn.

Do you know how “next to the park” sometimes means “The distance is walkable. As long as you’re not wearing heels and, if you’re like, a camel”?

Well, this condo is really across the street from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. No, really. We checked the map.

 

2. Prospect Heights

375 Prospect Place – Asking Price: $825,000

This condo is literally surrounded by everything we hold dear: trees, brownstones and great dining options. It’s also close to the Brooklyn Museum and, of course, a short walk from the park (even if you’re wearing heels).

 

3. Prospect Heights

34 Plaza Street – Asking Price: $725,000

This co-op is located right next to the Army Plaza and, most importantly, just close enough to Park Slope. That way, you can enjoy all those artisanal eateries without actually having to buy a multi-million-dollar property. How perfect is that?

 

4. Windsor Terrace

651 Vanderbilt Street – Asking Price: $395,000

This neighborhood is rapidly gentrifying (aren’t they all?) but, luckily for you, the real estate prices are far from those in Park Slope. Seriously, $658 per square foot these days is not that bad. The best thing about this listing is the location: While it’s somewhat far from the renown Botanical Garden, Southwest of Prospect Park with its gorgeous lake is a lovely place to take your morning strolls.

 

5. Prospect Lefferts Gardens

150 Hawthorne Street – Asking Price: $375,000

This listing is the cheapest in our selection and, well, our favorite (we promised you won’t have to break the bank, didn’t we?).

Now, this co-op might not have the Prospect Park views, but it’s just a half mile-walk from the closest park entrance.
