We’ve always wondered about the original interiors of these houses, whose distinctive roof lines inspired the art work for the Stuyvesant East Preservation Action League. They’re much more detailed than we had imagined, with elaborate moldings and handsome low fireplace mantels. This particular property has a lot of detail left but also needs work, as the listing admits. We heard from someone who attended the open house that the sellers are looking for an all-cash deal and have received several offers already — naturally, the amount and financing were not specified. The house last traded to an LLC in December for $300,000, after the bank foreclosed in 2009 — about the price you would expect if the house were to lack working kitchens and baths and cannot be financed. The new ask is $649,000. Do you think they’ll get it?

Well, after the local community board nixed the proposal, the Landmarks Preservation Commission decided it didn’t care for it either, reported The Brooklyn Eagle. LPC asked […]
Fridays at 11, Brownstoner Upstate brings you a selection of properties within three hours north, and a little east or west, of New York City. For our purposes, the term “contemporary” in relation to home design is a broad term used to describe anything that can’t really be considered mid-century modern but is not cutting-edge […]
A look at Brooklyn, then and now. After the Civil War ended, the building boom in Brooklyn began to take up speed again. By the 1870s, speculative building in the city’s neighborhoods began earnest, as the rows of Italianate, Neo-Grec and Second Empire houses began defining the neighborhoods radiating out from Downtown.
