For someone looking for a relatively affordable entree into the Park Slope townhouse market, this semi-detached house at 645 Baltic Street might fit the bill. On the plus side, the house has attractively renovated kitchens, a new roof, recently updated mechanicals and a new gas boiler. It’s currently configured as two floor-through rentals over an owner’s duplex.
But the new renovation doesn’t seem to have erased the marks of an earlier mid-century one. We’re not loving the step up to the owner’s living room in the split-level extension on the back. And while you don’t actually have to walk through one bedroom to get to the other, as the floor plan seems to indicate, the partition closing off the front bedroom seems to have been placed in an awkward spot. The old replacement doors don’t help, and the mantels appear to be in need of restoration.
But for $2,495,000, do you think it’s attractive?
