Big 2 bedroom apartment in a very well kept Coop Building on a quiet Kensington Street.

Huge living room with big windows, separate kitchen with room for a table, and two true bedrooms. The first bedroom will fit a king size bed and furniture. The second bedroom is a queen. Tons of closets, hardwood floors throughout (kitchen is tiled). Laundry in the basement and a community garden is accessible through the basement.

Gorgeous neighborhood. Tree lined streets. Easy access (7 minutes) to F G stop at Church Ave. Also access to B Q at Church. Lovely and hip Cortelyou Road strip of bars, restaurants, cafes and shopping is a short walk away. And of course Prospect Park is almost right there!

Great price and a awesome price. Move a few blocks north into Windsor Terrace/Park Slope and this apartment could easily be $3000 or more!
