This price represents an 21.9% increase from last year’s median price of $651,680.  Not surprisingly, due to the pandemic, the number of sales climbed dramatically from 363 to 670, an increase of 84.5%.

What does $795K get you in the borough of Brooklyn? Let’s have a look.

Apartment 5-F at The Symon, 76 Schermerhorn Street, is a one-bedroom, one bath residence in a stunning new boutique development located in Brooklyn Heights.  

At 593 square feet, the home extends a nice welcome with an inviting foyer. The open concept layout combines the living and dining areas with an open kitchen.  There are three oversized windows that bring bountiful light into the space.

The designer kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, whitedove quartz countertops and a marble slab backsplash.  The appliance package includes an integrated Liebherr refrigerator, BlueStar Chef’s range and Bosch dishwasher.  

The primary bedroom basks in sunlight from two south-facing windows.  The elegant en-suite bath offers a designer vanity with marble countertop, tub and shower with high-end fixtures.

Architectural details give the home a timeless feel.  Nine-foot ceilings, double paneled wood doors, oak floors, crown molding accents and tall baseboards create a warm interior.  The unit has a washer/dryer and high efficiency heating and cooling systems.

The Symon is a post-war condo with 59 apartments across 12 floors.  Security is provided by a full-time doorman.  The building is ripe with amenities; our favorite two are the residents lounge and the common roof deck. The lounge harks back to the days of private club rooms with its vintage accents, custom millwork and mid-century furnishings.  This exquisite space is replete with a working fireplace, kitchen and bar, large screen TV and a landscaped garden terrace.  At the top of the building a stunning roof deck offers panoramic harbor and city views. The property is a stone’s throw from the Brooklyn Heights Historic District and the major attractions of Downtown Brooklyn.
