Location, location, location was the watch-word for a french family looking for a new home in Brooklyn’s Kensington neighborhood.
They went in with an offer $46,000 over the $489,000 ask to win unit 5U at 599 East 7th Street, a full-service co-op with a part-time doorman, package service, elevator, laundry rooms and outdoor space.
“The buyers were sold on the property due to the location of the kitchen – being closed off and separate, but spacious and with great natural light,” said Shyda Hoque, who listed the home with Maryam Daghmoumi, both of Realty Collective in Brooklyn.
“They had been looking for many months and loved the layout.”
The two-bedroom, 1-bath apartment covers 1,100 s/f and the windowed kitchen has tons of natural light and lots of storage.
