Location: Brooklyn, New York
Price: $5,200,000

Richard Meier's modernist, glass-walled interloper On Prospect Park (OPP) has finally settled into life among the genteel brownstones, offering this sprawling four-bedroom and typically all-white condo on the second floor of the 15-story building for just over $5 million.

The interiors sport the floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass characteristic of the Pritzker-winner's oeuvre, custom-designed mill-work and rift-cut oak floors. (Fortunately, it overlooks Prospect Park, rather than its neighbors' somewhat more modest windows.)

The location will put future owners at the nexus of all that is leafy and filmic in Brooklyn — Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Garden, and the Brooklyn Public Library, from which the development stole its street address, creating havoc with Fresh Direct deliveries — and on the B, Q, 2 and 3 subway lines and several Citibike stations.

With a floor plan of 3,000+ square feet, they will also get a huge open-plan "entertaining space" that includes kitchen, dining and living rooms, three bathrooms, a separate laundry room and pantry off the kitchen, and a walk-in closet off the master bedroom so large it can double as a home office.
