House of the Day: 410-412 Waverly Avenue


We’re suckers for the exposed beams you so often see in renovated carriage houses. This double-wide one at 410-412 Waverly Avenue does not disappoint in that department. The huge living area on the second floor is beautiful. Some of the bedrooms feel a little small given that the building itself is 6,400 square feet large but otherwise the $2,995,000 listing looks very nice. There’s also some extra FAR. Think they can get their price?

  • It is a three-family building.
    disappointing.
    It could be worth 2.9 million as an over-the-top single family home with a large garage, but as a rental property it is very ordinary, sub par even.

  • Who wouldn’t want to pay three million dollars to live on an industrial block across from a scool in a sketchy neighborhood? To whom do I write my check?

  • Fancy, stainless appliances aside, I think the kitchen is crummy for that price tag. I’m also not surprised there are no pictures of those bathrooms built at oblique angles. Hard to believe they’re not awkward.

  • The price seems batsh*t crazy to me, but what the heck do I know?

    PS: The GMAP link is way, way off.

  • waverly was the service street in the area, hence the many carriage houses and other support buildings. I don’t think the area is sketchy any longer, but there is a public school directly across the street, which I doubt someone buying a two and a half million carriage house would send their children to.

  • It is not a sketchy neighborhood any longer, but don’t push it deadonarrival,
    it used to be death on a stick.

    Beautiful building! Great block, but $2.9 is a bit aggressive. I would definitely “bid half off” on this one…

    You have to watch out for the kindergarteners at that school. They will run you over on their mini kick scooters. Some of them don’t even wear helmets.

  • I really love the idea of owning a pair of carriage houses like these. But the current configuration stinks.
    For starters I want a garage big enough for two cars, numerous bicycles, and a vespa. Next, the second floor great room should span the entire front of both buildings, I also want a rooftop exercise room/zen garden.

  • Hmmm.. I think a lot of the initial nays on this must have been from the wrong map… I live on the other side of this block and this is NOT an industrial block or a sketchy neighborhood, but yes Minard it USED TO BE rough. Almost every house on this block has been renovated in the last three years and it is pretty fantastic. The last remaining lot is being built on right now and from what I hear should be done by early spring. And unless I’m misreading property shark this is a 2 family, not a 3 – which makes sense for someone who is looking to live in it and have a rental. I’m not so sure it is overpriced either… It is TWO carriage houses next to each other that have been combined (6400sf?!!), have parking, and FAR (!)… If one carriage house was put on the market for 1.5m on this block it would be snatched up in a heartbeat. And to get a sense of what is going on in the neighborhood I just heard (was it on here? someone confirm) that a smallish two family on Cambridge (much less desirable in my humble opinion) just closed or is about to for 2.2. This is such a better location and set up, between Clinton Ave and Washington, close to parks, subways, restaurants, Pratt, etc. Anyway, I guess I just hate seeing misguided info/opinions about my neighborhood/block!

  • the floorplans show three kitchens=three families.
    this was renovated for the period about ten or fifteen years ago when this was still sort of frontier and now the owner wants to sell like it was cobble hill or brooklyn heights, but the interiors are not cobble hill or brooklyn heights they are waverly place fifteen years ago.

    I don’t think the interiors really matter. It’s 6400 square feet in a great neighborhood, which doesn’t have a lot of housing on the market.

  • I like the interiors even if they are a tiny bit outdate of a renovation. They still look to be in good shape. Unfortunately, that layout on all the diagonals, IS, for “Today” a bit on the seemingly whacky side but you know…that will probably come back in…don’t kid yourselves, Kids.

    The main issue is the price is set a bit too high (which is a turn-off and/but does, in fact, say “only for serious buyers’ consideration”) AND there’s no way I see on the layout on the Corcoran page for you to get from your parked car in the garage through that entryway and into the other building. This is one two-family building and one one-family building being sold together it seems. No?

    And yes, the price needs to come down a bit but I’m sure they’ll get over two million.

    Someone will probably do quite a renovation and change of layout and maybe even a roof addition. It will get the works. Trust me.

    there’s been some big ASKs around this area that I was sure wouldn’t be met but I was wrong. I wouldn’t be surprised if this gets something around 2.5M. the width & parking is hard to come by so that makes it attractive to the richie rich folks. of course if I had 3M to spend, I would buy a huge brownstone nearby
