House of the Day: 113 Saint Johns Place


The townhouse at 113 Saint Johns Place was purchased for $2,900,000 back in 2007 and subsequently underwent a thorough renovation that’s resulted in a modernized home with lots of historic charm. Despite disagreeing with their choice to put recessed lighting in the parlor floor, we’re liking the look and feel of the rest of the interiors very much. The backyard is a little severe for our tastes but it has the benefit of being very low maintenance. The asking price of the four-story brownstone is $3,750,000.

  • Central A/C, MBR with ensuite bath and WIC, landscaped/hardscaped yard…it won’t last. Probably already have multiple offers

  • Bidding War!

    I’m just going to say it for every listing that’s decently renovated and is in prime Brooklyn

  • $14,000 a month mortgage payment. That requires a good amount of take home pay.
    .

  • Minard, if someone owned a two bedroom condo in Manhattan for 10-12 yeasr (thousands of people like that) they have more than half the price of this place in equity

    • dibs, as always, you are a veritable font of wisdom.
      so with 50% down, the monthly mortgage payment drops to a modest $10,000 a month. Practically chump change. so all one needs to do is to park 1.8 million dollars in the property and you’re free and clear with just a modest $120,000 a year debt service.
      I only hope to be as smart as you when I’m your age.

  • Don’t like the double doors to the master bath – they take up too much room – would have been worth it to me to spring to have them made into 1 or 2 sliding pocket doors, even with the inches of width one would lose in one or the other, or both, rooms (or perhaps I’d have made the bath entry from the hall, so as not to lose the bedroom wall space in a bedroom that already has a fireplace on the other long wall, as I like wall space for beds, and don’t require en suite for a master bath as some do.)

    I always thought a double parlor was a two room one (original rooms) – it doesn’t look like they combined rooms here, so I’d have called that a deep parlor.

    I would also chop off most of the overhang from the kitchen island to make room for a table in that room rather than counter stools.

    And I can’t tell how easy it would be to reintroduce dirt and greenery to the yard, what the paving material is, from the pictures.

    But, quibbles…that’s one nice house! On my favorite block of St. John’s Pl, too.

  • Awesome block, great looking house. Not a lot out there right now like this in Park Slope, should go fast. Stuff I don’t like such as the yard, fixtures (fan in kitchen) and bathroom layouts can be fixed.

  • But what happened to the facade. Did they pay extra for that? Doesn’t look like Abdul’s work.

  • the facade masonry looks like crap.
    Looks like a boarding house circa 1978.

  • Oh yeah, that facade is a hot mess…didn’t look closely at the exterior photo.
