Prime Time Cobble Hill: 362 Degraw Street

If you like the BoCoCa vibe (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens), then the location doesn't get much more prime than this. 362 Degraw Street is just one door in from Smith Street, surrounded by lovable places like Zaytoon's, Cafe Luluc, and Bar Great Harry. The exterior looks great, and "with a nearly finished conversion by its architect/owner" there have been lots of nice updates, including a bulkhead on the roof with a roof terrace. Let me repeat: ROOF TERRACE

How about this nice, bright space with the exposed beams and the interior staircase?

While other parts of the interior have more of a cottage feel...

You even get a small yard on just a 60' deep lot. Oh wait, that's also because the house is only 32' deep. Listed as a legal 4-Family on Property Shark, the listing calls out only one garden rental 1BR, putting this more in the 2-Family category. As the pricey 2-Family market goes, this one certainly holds its own at $1.675M. Either way you cut it, somebody's gonna wanna pay top dollar over here, even if the interior style isn't always up to their taste.

Pro's: LOCATION, curb appeal, renovated & updated, ROOF TERRACE, cute little finished backyard

Con's: no pictures of the roof terrace, interior look is fresh-but-dated, 32' deep

Ideally: a great quality-not-quantity play in a primo neighborhood, especially closer to $1.5M
