1087 Prospect Place

The four-story brick double duplex at 1087 Prospect Place in Crown Heights' historic district opened for viewing today. Featuring separate entrances, the left leads to a three-bedroom duplex on two upper floors, providing rental income estimated at $2,200. The right entrance leads to an owner's three-bedroom duplex with a large garden and finished basement. The interior is in need of some renovation, with old carpets, cabinetry and ceilings, but overall appears in good condition. The interior is roomy with touches indicative of its early 20th century origin, although it lacks high ceilings. The home is on a tree-lined model block created in the 1960s with special street lights, sidewalks and traffic-calming bumps. The house is one block from the Brooklyn Children's Museum, in the midst of a multi-million dollar renovation and a five-block walk from either the #3 or C trains. The home is listed at $849,000.
