How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Winter is winding down, and this two-bedroom, two-bath duplex in Fort Greene seems designed with warm weather in mind. The apartment is on the ground floor and cellar level of a boutique condo building built in 2008. Ground-floor living can come with some negatives, such as limited natural light, but here it also means access to an 800-square-foot yard. The yard includes two cherry blossom trees, which should be a pretty sight come April.

The apartment is listed for $1.65 million, and there's a tax abatement in place until 2025, which will keep monthly charges to $453.

The living room, pictured at top, has high ceilings and French doors onto the backyard that let in natural light. There are built-in shelves, and a separate dining area—something of a rarity in newer developments—also looks sunny. The open kitchen features a sizable island, quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and ample storage.

The two bedrooms are on the cellar level. The master bedroom includes more built-in shelving and a closet, and opens onto a sunken patio. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. A second bedroom comes with two large closets, and there's an additional office space adjacent to it.

In addition to the cherry trees, the main yard has garden beds and a stone patio. The apartment also has a washer and dryer, and central air.

The building has a bike room. It's two blocks from the G train at Fulton Street and the C at Lafayette Avenue, and six blocks from the transit hub at Atlantic Terminal.
