Over the last 10+ years many young families have come to recognize the charm of a jewel of a neighborhood in Brooklyn called Windsor Terrace.
Real estate prices have steadily climbed upward, but are still considered lower than nearby Park Slope. You can find a studio coop apartment in Windsor Terrace for around $250,000, a limestone or brick townhouse in the $1.5M to $1.8M price range, or a mixed use (storefront with residential apartments above) building for approximately $2M.
The housing stock in Windsor Terrace is not plentiful, but it is wonderful. You will find beautifully kept attached limestone and brick row houses, wood frame townhouses and even some Queen Anne Victorian homes. When you buy a home in Windsor Terrace, your lifestyle will be that of a true neighborhood, filled with neighborliness and a quiet small town vibe.
There is no hustle bustle of 7th Avenue of Park Slope in Windsor Terrace.
Prospect Park West, Prospect Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway is where you will find an ample selection of Coffee Shops, Bars, Restaurants and retail stores from Yoga Studios to Bagel Stores.
If architecture attracts you then Windsor Terrace has many wonderful and eye catching homes. If bright yellow is your favorite color then visit 612 20th Street, a gorgeous yellow frame house. If a more traditional style home appeals to you, visit Fuller Place between Prospect Avenue and Windsor Place to see the charming brick homes with front porches with columns and many homes with lovely front gardens.
Last but not least, for a look at what is considered to be the most charming house in the neighborhood, look no further than the very lovely clapboard clad house located at 211 Vanderbilt Street.
