Get Used to the Neighbors in Brooklyn Heights

182 State Street

Brooklyn Heights co-ops easily command the price of this four-story townhouse at 182 State Street. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning one for $1.45 million (in prime Brooklyn, no less) and aren’t married to living on all its floors, now’s your chance. The caveats: It’s only eighteen feet wide (though the lot’s a generous 100 feet long). It’s also chopped up into seven apartments, says listing broker Amanda Young of the Corcoran Group. And, here’s the kicker — you may not be able to spread out into the entire house for a while, if at all. Four tenants have rent-stabilized leases, dashing most hopes of enjoying the full townhouse experience. (Wait them out and they might just move, allowing you to occupy the entire townhouse.) That said, the parlor floor’s two units are delivered vacant, as is another unit, so you can combine both and have ample space to be the king of a scaled-down castle. — S. Jhoanna Robledo

Clarification: The rent-stabilized tenants can be removed from the building, if you want to spend a lot of time and money and whatever good karma you accumulated throughout life. You could also try asking them to move.
