This five-story brownstone at 36 Garden Place didn’t sell when it was a House of the Day in 2012 and listed for $10,000,000. Now it’s back on the market for $8,250,000 with a new broker (Stribling) and different photos. Some unusual artwork that appeared in the original listing is no longer pictured. (more…)
The Fort Greene house with radiant heat controlled by an iPad we told you about last month is now on the market. Renovated by Stuyvesant Group, it is unusually luxurious even for a high-end renovation and has an open floor plan, a double height kitchen in the rear of the parlor floor, marble counters and slabs of marble on the walls in the kitchen, and a high-efficiency boiler.
The house was a shell so there were no details to save, developer Adam Cohen told us, but he purchased three salvage pier mirrors and now one of them conceals a TV behind smoked glass. It’s set up as a triplex over a garden rental. We suspect this will go quickly at $3,500,000. What do you think?
Original details abound in this estate-condition, circa-1900 shingled house. The standalone house, located in the Fiske Terrace section of Flatbush close to Brooklyn College, has an enclosed wraparound porch with beadboard ceiling. (more…)
This three-family on Hancock Street in Stuyvesant Heights is not as fancy as some but has plenty of ornate original details, including some we have never seen before. The mantels have that Gibson Girl-era look with rounded inset and beveled mirrors and wedding cake decorations. (more…)
The Brooklyn Home Company picked up this Romanesque Revival, which we called a “time capsule” when it was a House of the Day, for $1,565,000 in 2012 and has completely redone it with a now-fashionable all-white look.(more…)
This Neo-Renaissance brownstone at 280 Park Place has tons of lavish details, including an onyx fireplace surround, elaborate screens, stained glass and inlaid parquet floors. Perhaps they used some salvage in the restoration, since not all the wood work appears to match (just an observation, not a criticism). All the mechanicals are new.
It’s set up as two rentals over a large owner’s duplex, with an extension on both levels in the duplex. It was a House of the Day in 2008.
It last sold for $1,450,000 in 2011. For $3,750,000, how do you like it?
This is the kind of estate condition listing we love: It’s got grand proportions (despite being less than 18 feet wide), Neo Grec details such as incised marble fireplaces, what seems to be a largely untouched floor plan, and even a few of the original built ins and sinks in the passthroughs, according to the listing. No kitchens or baths are shown, and we couldn’t check any HPD history because the site is down.
The brownstone at 331 Washington Avenue traded hands earlier this month from one LLC to another for $1,900,000. It looks like a lovely place, but the new ask is $2,995,000. Last we checked, that was top of the line for a Clinton Hill row house. Are fixer-uppers really going for that much now?
As Curbed pointed out earlier this week, here’s a whole house in Williamsburg for just under a million ($999,000). It looks to be in move-in condition. It is also tiny, strangely shaped, and has no yard. Do you think it will go for over ask?
This bow-fronted red brick row house at 62 Stratford Road in Caton Park is less than a block from Prospect Park and has parking. There’s no floor plan in the listing, but we’re guessing the house was built as a two-family based on the interior photos and the setup of one apartment per floor. The listing says it was built in 1901, and it looks it.
Halstead’s latest is a four-story row house on Putnam near Stuyvesant that has a good amount of original detail and appears to be freshly renovated. It’s set up as an owner’s triplex over a garden rental. (more…)
This huge and absolutely stunning Park Slope Renaissance Revival brownstone did not sell more than a year ago, when it was a House of the Day and asking $9,000,000. Now the new ask is $6,995,000, which if our back-of-the-envelope calculations are correct, puts it about just under $1,100 a square foot.
It’s 22 feet wide and 78 feet deep, on a park block, and seems to have endless original features in perfect condition, including an original bath, an onyx fireplace surround and untouched woodwork. Still, most top-of-the-line Park Slope houses seem to clock in at about $3,000,000 less.
