What you give up in commute time to the city, you gain in proximity to the beach, square footage, and outdoor space in this three-bedroom, two-bath Brighton Beach condo. The duplex penthouse has a summery aesthetic, with exposed brick painted bright white, gray oak floors, reclaimed wood finishes, and large windows to let the sun in. Listed by Corcoran for $1.2 million, the condo is right around the median for homes of this size in the area. 

The home spans 1,500 square feet, and on the lower level, the living room (see main image) seems spacious and sunny, and opens directly onto a private balcony. The sleek, open kitchen looks like it's undergone a recent revamp, with a wavy backsplash reminiscent of the ocean a few blocks away. 

The master bedroom delivers some flair in its exposed brick and hot pink walls (we like that goth-y chandelier). You'll also find a stylish office nook, with more brick, an exposed duct, and a bay window for gazing out and daydreaming—the perfect spot for a writer or artist. The two bathrooms look like they've undergone a remodel in the not-too-distant past, and the second includes a walk-in shower.  

Upstairs, you'll find what the listing deems a "flex room" with radiant-heated floors. This could be your third bedroom, or a den or guest room. In any case, it's a prime spot, as it leads directly onto a huge roof deck, equipped with grills, and lounging and dining areas. 

Other perks of heading to this beachy corner of Brooklyn? The apartment comes with two parking spots, there's a gym in the building, and monthly fees are low—$471 in common charges and $41 in taxes.
