House of the Day

We love love love all the cute streets after Dahill. We often walk the dog that way and wish our lives were spread out on one of those porches on Chester Ave or Bills Place. We rarely see these places come up for sale but spotted this cutie on our Saturday morning walk. We rang the realtor and were stunned at the price of $699K for this 'two' family! (Two meaning one owner home and a little one bedroom unit off the garage). We love the style of the house but wonder, can this really be the range local homes are going for? We guess with PS 230 and PS 130 as zoned schools the area is a draw for familys (as is our low crime rate and proximity to the park and the Slope). However, we would think being on 12 Ave the B16 could become annoying and at the end of the day really think prices are getting out of control! We may need to move out of Brooklyn one day altogether if this continues.
