The Willougby Walk Co-op consists of two tall and majestic buildings in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn right across the street from Pratt Institute’s Campus. One of the things I love about the co-op is that many apartments have terraces that allow you enjoy the great out of doors without leaving your apartment (technically), and there are apartments with breathtaking Manhattan views that rival any postcard.
Willoughby Walk is a well run, well-maintained co-op that has studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments available for purchase. Here’s a range of prices for each apartment size based on the apartments sold in the last year (3/2014 to 3/2015). Keep in mind that updated and newly renovated apartments sell at the higher end of the scale:
Studio Apartments sold between $225,000 and $255,000.
One Bedroom Apartments sold for between $340,000 $450,000.
Two Bedroom Apartments sold in the $550,000 to $600,000 range.
Only 1 Three Bedroom Apartment sold for $865,000.
- 100% owner occupied.
- Large windows bring a lot of light into the apartments.
- This is a gated community with 24-Hour Security.
- The Co-op is Pet Friendly. Dogs and Cats are welcome.
- Some apartments have terraces.
- Some apartments have picture postcard Manhattan views.
- The Co-op has great financials and cash reserves.
- Well maintained laundry facilities on campus.
- Storage is available.
- Parking is available (there’s a waiting list)
Willoughby Walk’s location is ideal. Its steps away from The Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Campus and St Josephs College.
Fort Greene Park, Myrtle and Dekalb Avenues, which are both lined with marvelous shops, restaurants and so much more are all a short walk away.
There’s a quick commute into Manhattan from Willoughby Walk. The G train is a 10 min walk away and the C train is not much farther than that. Several buses take you to downtown Brooklyn in no time.
As you can see from the list above, there are many things to like, but, like most things in life, there are cons. If you are looking for a large kitchen and want to seat a large number of people for dinner, then this co-op may not be for you. The kitchens tend to be on the smaller side and most apartments have no designated dining area to speak of. However, if you rarely cook and don’t usually have a lot of sit down banquet style dinner parties, these cons are not deal breakers, or you can simply renovate the apartment expanding the kitchen and creating a dining space.
Willoughby Walk is a smart investment, as the Clinton Hill area continues to grow in popularity and amenities, so will apartment prices. If you are interested in viewing some apartments there, feel free to give me a call at the number below or email me by clicking here.
