A one-bedroom one-bath co-op with a separate kitchen, a living room and a terrace in an 81-unit doorman building with an elevator. Rebekah Carver, Brooklyn Hearth Realty (646) 489-4446;
PROS: The kitchen has a copper sink and a pass-through into the living room. Both it and the tiled bath have recently been renovated. The street-front terrace, which runs the full width of the apartment, has planters for privacy and is large enough for a table for six.
CONS: There is no tub; there is a waiting list for in-building parking.
