Embodying that romantic, small-town feeling, Park Slope is an iconic Brooklyn neighbourhood, and for good reason. Tree-lined streets, brownstones galore and leafy Prospect Park make this one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the city. Union Street station is just a five-minute walk away, whisking you into Manhatten in half an hour. This apartment sits in a handsome red brick building in the heart of it all. The open kitchen, living and dining room is particularly spacious for a New York abode, with wood flooring and pristine white walls keeping a contemporary feel. A little office room sits off the living room should you need to catch up on work. The real bonus is the private garden. A glass door leads from the kitchen to a patio with dining for four – so it’s easy to dine alfresco if the weather is fine. A grassy stretch dappled with flowers sits beyond the patio for a peaceful moment in the heart of the city.
