Open House Now: 130 8th Street

It's really hard for us to call this Park Slope. 130 8th Street is between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. However, the proximity to the train, the presentable interior, the backyard, and the relatively do-able price point makes us look at this 22' wide 3-Family. There's even an open house today from 1:00 - 3:00pm, sorry to tell you so late...

An owner's duplex with a yard and 2BR rentals above is the ideal layout for the kinds of plays we like. One of the bedrooms is suspect at 7' wide, though. The price might be a tad steep and the building shallow, but the owner bought in 2003 for $710K, so there should be a little flexibility if you want a Gowanus/Park Slope charmer without taking South Slope past the BQE.

Pro's: ideal layout, 22' wide, totally turnkey, backyard

Con's: not really Park Slope, only 25' deep, quirky block, price is high

Ideally: if the location and size aren't a dealbreaker, figure out the price
