Ocean Parkway at Beverly Road: Bright & sunny top floor studio with great closets, a sunken living room, separate kitchen and full bath in a post-war elevator building with p/t doorman, garage, and seasonal outdoor pool! The apartment has a sunken living room facing West overlooking Ocean Parkway from huge windows, a nice size dining area/entry foyer with a huge closet outside the galley kitchen with pass-thru window, ceramic tiled floors, wood cabinets and white appliances. There is another closet and original shelving outside the full bathroom. The building is frankly rough around the edges, but the landlord is slowly but surely making it nicer: they have redone balconies, repointed the exterior and will be renovating the lobby, hallways, and elevators over the next year or two. MUST have 700 credit and the landlord determines eligibility using this formula: rent + debt (monthly payments) x 40 = minimum income, so $1300x40=52k min. income, but $1300 + $200 student loans = $1500 x 40 = $60k minimum income.
