The new owners of the seen-better-days house at 580 Carlton Avenue on a landmarked block in Prospect Heights are planning major upgrades. A couple of months ago a mock-up of a proposed extension was seen on the back of the building, and next week there’s going to be a Landmarks hearing on the proposed work. From the LPC meeting agenda: “An Italianate style wood frame rowhouse built c. prior to 1855 with later alterations. Application is to construct a rear yard addition, reconstruct the facades; and alter the front door and stoop.” The home was on the market for $499,000 earlier this year and ended up selling for $480,000. Thoughts on how much a top-to-bottom overhaul and rear extension might cost?
