We love this five-bedroom, two-bath triplex in Park Slope, which is both beautiful and expensive. There aren’t any kitchen or bathroom photos, but the listing says it has a “well-appointed galley kitchen.”
The double parlor, formal dining room and kitchen are all on the same floor. There are tons of original details, including five decorative fireplaces, built-in cabinetry, parquet floors, a coffered ceiling in the dining room, pocket doors and marble sinks and original cabinetry in the passthroughs.
There is also laundry in the apartment and a shared garden. Do you think it will rent quickly for $11,000 a month?
This Park Slope two-bedroom is attractive but has a problematic layout. The original wood mantels and the tin backsplash in the kitchen add a bit of old-fashioned flair, and the red accent paint is quite modern.
But the one bathroom is only accessible through the larger bedroom, making this apartment unworkable for roommates. Besides that quirk, the location is great — close to the park and the 2/3 trains at Grand Army Plaza.
It seems like a good fit for a couple, who might want to use the smaller bedroom as an office. What do you think of it for $3,200 a month?
How awesome is this condo at the Montauk Club in Park Slope? The full-floor unit clocks in at a whopping 4,200 square feet and has beaucoup original details. The location’s hard to beat for convenience and proximity to the park as well. This kind of mac daddy living don’t come cheap though: The asking price is $5,250,000 and the monthly costs come in at just north of $4,500. Amazing!
This North Slope one-bedroom is pricey, but it’s in a great location and chock full of historic details. We see mahogany woodwork around the doors, windows and walls, as well as a few decorative wooden mantels. And apparently this apartment has a “ceiling height of baronial proportions.” The 1,000-square-foot pad also has a recently renovated kitchen (sadly not pictured), a small deck and access to a backyard garden. Apparently the house served as the set for a Ben Stiller movie called “Duplex,” and it’s a former BOTD. What are your thoughts on it for $3,500 a month?
This beautiful Park Slope four-bedroom, two-bath duplex has everything a family would want. The 2,200-square-foot apartment has a formal dining room and large living room with a window seat and wood burning fireplace. Both rooms have some nice details, including parquet floors, mantels, and interesting wall trim.
And the fancy renovated kitchen has all the modern necessities, such as white Cesarstone counters, stainless steel appliances and a center island with a wine cooler. At this this price point, some outdoor space would be nice, though. But it is close to Prospect Park. Do you think it’ll rent for $7,800 a month?
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.
This three-story limestone at 41 Montgomery Place has had the same owner since the mid-1960s. The house has three working fireplaces, parquet floors, neo-classical-style plaster details and wood work, and stained glass. The kitchen is located in the rear of the parlor floor and opens onto a deck. The house is currently being used as a one-family, although legally it is a two, according to the listing.
It last sold for $20,000 in 1966, as The Daily News noted last week. Now the ask is $4,000,000. Think they’ll get it?
Update: Citi Habitats reached out to let us know that the sellers actually paid $32,500, not $20,000, back in 1966. Also a “funny fact” is that “the sellers back in 1966 threw in a big chest-style freezer they owned that the buyers liked,” the rep added.
This new listing at 134 Lincoln Place has the layout you’d expect from a brownstone floor-through apartment — kitchen and living up front with a big bedroom and a small bedroom in the back. This one’s also got a bay window and a working fireplace. We wouldn’t mind seeing some crown moldings but overall the apartment has a traditional feel (though we doubt that fireplace is original). Asking price: $739,000. Maintenance: $952.
P.S. 321′s Diversity Committee is hosting three sociology professors for a roundtable discussion on gentrification this Thursday. Their conversation will explore the changing racial, ethnic and economic demographics in Brooklyn, as well as the causes and consequences of gentrification in neighborhoods throughout the borough.
The panelists are Dr. Zaire Dinzey-Flores, associate sociology professor at Rutgers, Dr. Jerome Krase, professor emeritus of sociology at Brooklyn College, and Dr. Emily Molina, associate professor of sociology at Brooklyn College.
Audience members will get to ask questions after the panel is over, and the discussion is open to the public. The Diversity Committee “is a parent-run group at P.S. 321 that is committed to creating a welcoming environment, which supports the rights of all individuals and reflects respect for our diverse student body with a spirit of sensitivity and tolerance,” in their own words.
The panel will take place Thursday at 6:30 pm in the auditorium of P.S. 321, located at 180 7th Avenue between 1st and 2nd streets.
This Park Slope brownstone feels over renovated to us but may appeal to a buyer who wants a squeaky clean new home but with original details too. There’s a mantel, pocket doors, and stained glass as well as recessed lighting, new floors, central air, and a kitchen banquette. It’s currently set up as a triplex over one-bedroom garden rental. What do you think of it for $3,350,000?
A piece of Park Slope at 269 4th Avenue between Garfield and 1st Street has just sold for $4,400,000, said TerraCRG, which brokered the deal. The property, which sold to an LLC, is one of three development sites on the block to sell recently. Last year, TerraCRG handled the sale of 275 4th Avenue for $14,800,000 and 265 4th Avenue for $4,125,000. The latter is the McDonald’s that will soon become an 11-story building from Adam America.
The irregularly shaped lot at 269 4th Avenue is 50.75 feet by 132.79 feet and houses a 3,964-square-foot former car repair shop that’s now vacant. The property can be developed up to 16,236 square feet, according to PropertyShark.
The full board from Community Board Six voted yes on the new design for Methodist Hospital’s expansion last night, Brooklyn Paper reported. CB6 voted 27 to 4 in support of the eight-story outpatient center but added several requirements. The board said they voted to approve the hospital’s variance because they’re trying to prevent the worst-case scenario for an as-of-right build, which would be a thinner 13-story building.
The approval came with stipulations proposed at Monday’s land-use meeting, which include scaling back the top three stories of glass along 5th Street and 8th Avenue, reducing the height of the building on the 5th Street side, cutting the number of parking spaces, and requiring employees to use only the entrance at 8th Avenue and Sixth Street.
The board also requested a traffic study for the streets around the hospital a year after the outpatient center opens.
