“Madhouse” is the only word to describe the open house last night at 199 South 1st Street, the Burg condo building that hit the market last week but officially launched yesterday. One hundred and fifty people RSVP’d; we heard almost 200 people showed up. Brokers also said they were getting lots of offers on the spot for the eight one- and two-bedroom units. The big appeal? The finishes looked pretty standard, as far as Williamsburg stock goes, but all the units did have a nice amount of outdoor space and sizable closets. (Four units have especially large outdoor spaces.) Also, prices range from $509,000 to $699,000, definitely cheaper than you’d pay a little more north, or closer to the water. Our guess is that these units will go at ask. Here are the aptsandlofts.com listings; check out some more open house pics after the jump.

Comment: Three out of four sold! Open House Picks 10/11/2013 [Brownstoner]
Have we yet extolled the virtues of Coxsackie? Pretty sure we have, but we’re going to do it again, because it’s spring and you need an excuse to visit a new place. Coxsackie in Greene County, 30 minutes south of Albany, 10 minutes north of Catskill, and two hours and 35 minutes north of Brooklyn. […]
A look at Brooklyn, then and now. Since wooden houses are in the Brownstoner news lately, today’s Past and Present shows some that are no more. They were lovely little frame houses on Bainbridge Street, between Malcolm X Boulevard (formerly Reid Avenue) and Sumner Avenue. These houses were from this eastern part of Bedford’s early […]
