Flatbush Co-op With Big Foyer, Arches Asks $520K


A spacious 1940s one-bedroom co-op in Flatbush has high coved ceilings, arched openings, and modern updates. It’s located on the third floor of 601 East 19th Street, just outside the historic bounds of Ditmas Park.

Designed by Seelig & Finkelstein, the six-story, 108-unit red brick building has neo-Colonial details, including an impressive two-story-high rounded white-painted wood entrance canopy with columns. It opened as a rental building called The Hampshire Arms in 1942 and went co-op in 2004.

The unit’s main rooms radiate off a central foyer big enough to serve as a combo library, mudroom, and office with a big table, books, and bench. It has a coat closet, built-in shelves, and arched doorways leading to other rooms.

Wood floors, moldings, and original doors run throughout most of the apartment. In the living room is parquet with an inlaid border, two windows, and enough space for dining and lounging. The floor plan indicates another built-in, although it is not pictured.

The renovated gray and white galley kitchen is also spacious, with plenty of cupboard and counter space and a dishwasher. Near the window is a dining area with new white-painted wainscoting.

The updated bathroom has a tub, white subway wall tile with a gray and brown contrast liner, and pedestal sink. Closets in the home total four, including one identified as a pantry.

The building has a live-in super, elevator, shared laundry, and a garden. Maintenance for this unit is $850 a month. Listed by Brandon Delgado of Compass, the apartment is asking $520,000. What do you think?
