A House of the Day pick in 2007 and again in 2011, 181 Midwood Street sold last month for 54 percent more than it traded for five years earlier. The most recent asking price — established last September when the house re-emerged on the market — was $1,300,000. The Corcoran listing shows (and public records confirm) a sale price of $1,420,000 on December 14, 2012. (In 2007 the ask for the two-story house was $925,000 and it sold for $920,000.) That’s not too shabby for one of the smaller homes on the block, albeit one with lots of original detail and a big upgrade. As far as we know, the highest-recorded Prospect Lefferts Gardens sale is 52 Midwood for $1.665 million.

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 […]
