Full Makeover for Wood Frame House at 162 Hall Street

162-Hall-Street-Brooklyn-050113
There’s a wonderful row of a dozen or so wood frame houses on Hall Street between Myrtle and Willoughby Avenues that feels largely untouched by time — or by the money that’s flowed into the neighborhood over the past decade. One of these houses, No. 162, is in the process of being gut renovated. In recent weeks, it’s gotten an entirely new exterior, wood cladding that will presumably be painted. Given that the house was boarded up before the renovation began, we’re assuming everything’s being redone from scratch on the inside. Even if it was a complete wreck, though, the price this place changed hands for last year seems suspiciously low: $250,000. The house had been in foreclosure so maybe someone just got lucky. GMAP
