This is one of three nicely preserved wood frame houses around the corner from us. We have to admit we were surprised to see it for sale — but even more surprised to hear it’s undergoing a “quality gut renovation” and by the asking price, which is $675,000. We’re guessing the inspiration for the price was the rush to contract at 534 Decatur Street, a special property on a brownstone block not far from here. (This block is mostly tenements.) Unfortunately, there are no interior photos, so we’ll have to take Corcoran’s word on the quality of the renovation. The listing says “expansive loft like open feel,” which doesn’t sound likely to go with the style of the house, but we shall see.

We’ve featured a number of units in the old school building at 44 Cheever Place in Cobble Hill over the years and this one has to be the most tricked out of them all. The two-bedroom condo has double-height ceilings in the living room and a sleek, modern kitchen that looks like it belongs in […]
We love this five-bedroom, two-bath triplex in Park Slope, which is both beautiful and expensive. There aren’t any kitchen or bathroom photos, but the listing says it has a “well-appointed galley kitchen.” The double parlor, formal dining room and kitchen are all on the same floor. There are tons of original details, including five decorative […]
This yellow brick corner building at 240 St. Nicholas Avenue has been renovated with reclaimed wood paneling, oak floors, and stainless steel appliances and is for sale for $2,295,000. There is an owner’s duplex — unusual for a multi-family in Bushwick — four rental apartments and a two-car garage. There’s also lots of FAR and […]
A new building application was filed last week for a five-story building at 331 Saratoga Avenue in Ocean Hill. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is listed as the owner on the permit. The vacant lot has been city-owned since the late ’70s, according to public records. The SLCE-designed development between Dean and Bergen streets will include 80 apartments […]
The Brooklyn Home Company broke ground recently on a four-unit condo building at 84 Congress Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront District. A joint venture with MESH Architectures, this project looks nothing like Brooklyn Home Company’s conversions in historic buildings we wrote about last week, as a rendering on the fence shows. Designed by Mesh Architecture, the 6,720-square-foot […]
