With high ceilings and elegant moldings, this two-bedroom Windsor Terrace could be a head turner with a little sprucing. It’s on the second floor of 14 Prospect Park Southwest, a circa 1915 building known as The Augusta across from Prospect Park.
Its tapestry brick facade is studded with neo-Classical details including diamonds, squares and arches. The unit opens to a small foyer and long hallway with two closets.
Parquet with a distinctive checked motif runs through most of the apartment, as does crown molding, low paneling and picture frame molding. There are windows on three exposures and French doors.
The living room has two windows and is about 17 feet long. A niche could be turned into a large closet or house a Murphy bed. The floor in this room may need a bit of patching, photos show, and the paneling under the windows could use restoration here and in other rooms. (Original molding details can be seen in an old listing for another unit in the building.)
The two bedrooms are similarly appointed, and each has a closet. The spacious galley kitchen with a dishwasher appears to be in fine working order, although its ceramic tile floor, laminate countertops and wood cabinets are builder grade.
The bathroom appears to have been renovated in the late 20th century and has classic black and white square tiles on the walls, a combination tub/shower and a pedestal sink.
There is shared laundry and a bike room in the four-story, 16-unit building, as well as common outdoor space. Pets and subletting are allowed, according to the listing.
Maintenance for the apartment is $958 a month. Listed by Doron Zemach of Re/Max Edge, it’s asking $875,000. What do you think?
