We’re coming up on Labor Day weekend, when people are generally more interested in savoring the last moments of summer than working Sundays and eyeballing real estate. So when it comes to open houses, this is not an action-packed weekend.
We’ve found a few, though — three in total. They’re all in brand-new condition: Two, in Bushwick, are gut renovations; one, in Crown Heights, is brand new construction.
The Bushwick houses are on the same block, as it happens: Eldert Street between Knickerbocker and Wilson avenues, a few blocks from the L train station at Halsey Street.
At No. 249 we’ve got an aluminum-sided number offering double duplexes, each 1,800 square feet, including an owner’s duplex with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a deck with stairs down to the backyard.
Up the block at No. 275 is a three-story brick townhouse with a two-bedroom apartment on top and a two-bedroom duplex below, with a large “recreation room” in the basement and access to a fenced-in garden. It’s got a bit of a rustic vibe, with beamed ceilings, exposed brick and skylights made from reclaimed wood.
Last up, on St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights, we’ve got a newly built home with a double duplex plus a finished basement. Each duplex has three bedrooms and an outdoor space — the bottom unit has the garden, the upper one has a roof deck.
