In the huge densely populated borough of Brooklyn there is a neighborhood with a small town feel and vibe to it. It is Windsor Terrace. Sandwiched between the neighborhoods of Park Slope and Flatbush, Windsor Terrace is known for its true sense of community. The blocks that make up this neighborhood have almost no through streets which keep things quiet and uncommon to Brooklyn neighborhoods instead of traffic lights there are stop signs.
There are wonderfully low key blocks with a great housing stock of brick rowhouses, wood frame townhouses and some gorgeous Queen Anne Victorian homes. The majority of apartment buildings in Windsor Terrace are located on Prospect Park Southwest.
There has been very little new construction to speak of in this neighborhood, but there is a seven story, 73 unit rental building from Hudson Companies that will open in 2015.
There have been very few properties on the market including coops, condos, townhouses or multifamilies, but today's prices (which can be as high as neighboring Park Slope) for a two family brick or wood frame house is in the range of $1M to $1.8M.Co-op apartments are in the range of $250,000 for a studio and up to $500,000 or a 2 bedroom, one bath. For a two bedroom, two bath condominium apartment the price is in the $700,000 range. There is one mixed use building, with one store and two apartments on the market now, asking $2.3M.
The schools in or near Windsor Terrace are Public School 130 The Parkside School, which runs through Grade 5 and Middle School 88 in Park Slope.
Transportation into Manhattan is via the F and G trains which stop at 15th Street Prospect Park and at Fort Hamilton Parkway.
