1. PARK SLOPE $3,750,000
174 Garfield Place GMAP P*Shark
A developer totally renovated this crumbling Park Slope brownstone last year. They paid $975,000 for the home in 2010. It was on the market for a decent while priced at $3,990,000. Not a bad flip at all. Deed recorded on 5/3/2013.
3. FORT GREENE $2,750,00
81 Willoughby Avenue GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD this February. We noted, “Except for the new wood floors on the parlor floor, this two-family house at 81 Willoughby Avenue looks chock full of old-timey goodness along with the right touches of modernization. The corner house also has an unusually large front yard for Fort Greene as well as a side yard and side exposure.” It was asking $2,250,000. Deed recorded on 5/3/2013.
4. DUMBO $2,090,000
100 Jay Street, #28A GMAP P*Shark
Here’s the old listing for the three bed/two-and-a-half bath condo at the J condo building. It last sold in 2007 for $1,507,090, then was listed early this year for $2,100,000. Deed recorded on 5/2/2013.
2. COBBLE HILL $2,647,450
253 Pacific Street, #3 GMAP P*Shark
253 Pacific Street is the ultra-modern looking condo that recently went up in Cobble Hill. Early this year, there was only one unit left – both units two and three had entered contract. (Streeteasy now shows that the last unit is under contract.) #3 sold above ask, which was $2.6 million. Here’s the old listing for the 2,603-square-foot penthouse duplex. Deed recorded on 4/11/2013.
3. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $2,140,325
20 Henry Street, #PH2-N GMAP P*Shark
This three bed, two bath condo unit was asking $2,100,000. Looking at Streeteasy, it appears that all the units at this new condo building have either sold or entered contract. Deed recorded on 4/11/2013.
5. DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN $1,918,892.13
365 Bridge Street, #16A GMAP P*Shark

113 St. John’s Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD we listed in February. It was purchased for $2,900,000 back in 2007. We said, “Despite disagreeing with their choice to put recessed lighting in the parlor floor, we’re liking the look and feel of the rest of the interiors very much.” Someone else did, too — it was asking $3,750,000. Deed recorded on 4/4/2013.
2. GRAVESEND $3,400,000
2050 East 3rd Street GMAP P*Shark
No listing for this one-family home. The PropertyShark photo above was taken three years ago, so we don’t know that’s its current state. Deed recorded on 4/2/2013.
3. PARK SLOPE $2,830,000
409 8th Street GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD pick in March. It was listed for $2,995,000 after a failed attempt last spring asking $3,195,000. It’s a modern renovation that we said “is likely to split the vote.” Deed recorded on 4/4/2013.
5. GOWANUS $2,055,500
96 2nd Street GMAP P*Shark
An Open House Pick in December 2012. Back then it was asking $1,900,000. You can see the listing for this three family home here. This has to be one of the biggest sales to hit Gowanus… Deed recorded on 4/4/2013.
2. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $3,850,000
20 Garden Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD back in 2011. This brownstone sold in 2012 in an off-market deal, then was listed again later that year. The home was asking $4,495,000 in 2012. Deed recorded on 3/20/2013.
3. CLINTON HILL $2,925,000
396 Grand Avenue GMAP P*Shark
The sale of this 26-foot-wide single family home, which set the neighborhood record, got its own post. It sold at its asking price. Deed recorded on 3/19/2013.
4. PARK SLOPE $2,650,000
608 6th Street GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD pick over the summer. We said, “It’s got a charming Arts and Crafts interior, with a coffered ceiling that’s particularly impressive. There are lots of other original details as well.” Ask: $2,650,000. Deed recorded on 3/18/2013.
5. BOERUM HILL $2,600,000
161 State Street GMAP P*Shark

3. PARK SLOPE $2,500,000
146 Berkeley Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD this summer. There was only one listing photo so there wasn’t much of a judgement made on the $2,795,000 ask. We did note that “the house appears to have retained its old-world charm… it’s certainly not a low price for a house that’s less than 17 feet wide.” Deed recorded on 2/20/2013.
4. CARROLL GARDENS $2,450,000
202 President Street, #3 GMAP P*Shark
This three-unit condo development (in a Carroll Gardens brownstone) sold very well. Unit #3 asked $2,495,000 and spent a month on the market. Units 1 and 2 sold at the asking price, $2,249,000 and $1,195,000. Deed recorded on 2/20/2013.
5. CLINTON HILL $2,250,000
56 Cambridge Place GMAP P*Shark
This free-standing mansion was picked up and renovated years back, and then listed on the market for $2,250,000. Here’s what we thought when it was listed as a HOTD: “It’s a pretty unusual opportunity, albeit one that will require some money and work: The Civil War-era house has 4,600 square feet of space and sits on a lot that is 50 by 100 feet. There are no interior photos of the house, only mention of double-height ceilings in the living room overlooked by a mezzanine. It’ll be interesting to see how this one fares price-wise.” Deed recorded on 2/20/2013.
1. COBBLE HILL $6,750,000
491 Henry Street GMAP P*Shark
Curbed covered this massive Cobble Hill sale over the weekend. It’s a three-story Federal Era townhouse with 50 feet of frontage; you can read about the building history and its extreme makeover at this BOTD post.

2. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $5,000,000
14 College Place GMAP P*Shark

4. DUMBO $4,100,000
1 Main Street, #9B GMAP P*Shark
A 2,592-square-foot, four-bedroom condo. The unit was listed this summer for $4,400,000. As a Condo of the Day, we said “this ninth-floor four-bedroom is no slouch.” This unit was also listed for a few months last year at $4,000,000 but did not sell. Deed recorded on 2/11/2013.
1. PARK SLOPE $4,695,000
56 Montgomery Place GMAP P*Shark
This home, right off the park, was asking $4,695,000. As a HOTD listing in the fall, we noted “plenty of posh upgrades, including a luxurious marble kitchen with leather banquette, a master bath with a fireplace and separate shower and toilet stalls, and a top-floor media room.” Commenters loved this house too. Deed recorded on 1/29/2013.
3. PARK SLOPE $2,649,000
226 6th Avenue GMAP P*Shark
We noted that this home went into contract in the fall. It was first listed in October for $2.649 million… not at all surprising nowadays to see a well-maintained Park Slope home go quickly at ask. Here’s the old listing. Deed recorded on 1/29/2013.
4. FORT GREENE $2,500,000
25 South Elliott Place GMAP P*Shark
This 20′ wide Fort Greene townhouse first hit the market in September for $2,450,000. It entered contract one month later. Deed recorded on 1/31/2013.

1. COBBLE HILL $2,795,000
28 Verandah Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD pick this May. We loved the location, on a quaint street overlooking Cobble Hill Park, but said “At just over 2,000 square feet, it’s relatively small for a house; at $2,795,000, it’s also pretty pricey on a per-square-foot basis.” Sold right at ask! Entered into contract on 8/14/12; closed on 11/09/12; deed recorded on 11/23/2012.
2. PROSPECT HEIGHTS $2,298,000
218 St. Marks Avenue GMAP P*Shark
Another HOTD pick from this summer. First priced at $2,999,000, then $2,795,000. Our opinion: “It’s certainly an attractive house in a good location but it lacks a certain wow factor that we think you need to get this number in this location.” Entered into contract on 9/24/12; closed on 11/7/12; deed recorded on 11/20/2012.
3. CLINTON HILL $2,026,000
370 Washington Avenue GMAP P*Shark
And another summer HOTD pick. The ask was $1,800,000 so the actual sale price is a nice feat. We did say the house definitely had a “special feel” to it. Entered into contract on 7/7/12; closed on 11/7/12; deed recorded on 11/19/2012.
4. WILLIAMSBURG $1,965,222.50

2. CARROLL GARDENS $2,440,000
45 3rd Place GMAP P*Shark
45 3rd Place (aka the Carroll Gardens Atrocity) has gotten a lot of ink from us before. The first attempt to sell was more than five years ago, when it was marketed as two duplex units. Then there were the open houses. And no bites from buyers. The whole building went on the market last year, first priced at $2,995,000. (It was an OHP when it was asking $2,895,000.) Then it hit the market again this year for $2,695,000, then $2,495,000. Entered into contract on 7/3/12; closed on 9/25/12; deed recorded on 10/10/2012.

75A Willow Street GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD this May. We said, “The eventual buyer of this new listing at 75A Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights will probably end up spending some dough reconfiguring the triplex-over-duplex configuration but at least they’ll have some great raw material to work with.” Ask was $3,350,000. Entered into contract on 5/31/12; closed on 8/20/12; deed recorded on 8/30/2012.
3. PARK SLOPE $2,750,000
360 4th Street GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD June 2012. We took note that “The 17-foot-wide house at 360 4th Street has been renovated top-to-bottom in ways that we mostly like, though long-time readers won’t be surprised to hear that all the recessed lighting on the parlor floor ain’t working for us.” It was asking $2,750,000. Entered into contract on 6/29/12; closed on 8/14/12; deed recorded on 8/28/2012.

One of the biggest real estate mysteries in Southern Brooklyn has just been cracked: Yesterday, the Real Deal reported that “The Venetian,” a luxury condo that one can see if one gazes east on the train while heading down to Coney, is being sold off by its original developers. Here’s the skinny, as told by TRD:
Sitt Asset assembled the various parcels that comprise the land in 2002 and 2003 for $9 million, and had plans to build the approximately 54,000-square-foot residential structure at a cost of about $500 per square foot, according to David Sitt, a vice president at Sitt Asset. But by the time the design was finalized and Sitt Asset took out a $54 million construction loan from Citibank in 2007 to launch the ground-up project, the cost estimate had more than doubled to $1,100 per square foot. The building was complete in 2010, when the Brooklyn sales market had collapsed to the point where it was virtually non-existent. With prospects grim for the project, Sitt moved to purchase back the loan from Citi at the discounted price of just $25 million. That effectively lowered the building costs close to the initial $500 per square foot projections. With costs now firmly under control and the borough’s sales market gaining traction, the developers were able to execute the plan as initially envisioned, Sitt said.
Unclear what they’re trying to get for the condo. Our photo above dates back to late 2009, and we thought the place was technically in Gravesend, not Midwood, though TRD refers to it as being located in the latter. In the go-go years, some units in this building were priced at more than $2,000 a foot, reportedly! Way back in the day, the marketers said the structure was inspired by 16th-century masterpieces like Veneto’s Villa Barbaro and Palazzo Porto.

If a new listing at 2134 Ocean Avenue in Gravesend gets its price, it’ll be the biggest number ever for a house in Brooklyn. Take that Brooklyn Heights! As per a report in today’s Real Deal, the property in question is a 9,200-square-foot single-family behemoth has an asking price of $14 million. “It’s like a palace in the middle of Brooklyn,” said co-listing broker Ryan Serhant, a senior vice president at NestSeekers. And he’s not kidding. Check out the pics on the jump…
1. GRAVESEND $2,728,000
400 Avenue U, #PH6E GMAP P*Shark
There wasn’t an exterior photo for this building on Property Shark and there also isn’t a listing on Streeteasy, but this sale is listed on ACRIS as a “single residential condo unit.” Entered into contract on 12/12/11; closed on 3/07/12; deed recorded on 3/23/2012.
2. PARK SLOPE $2,200,000
117 Lincoln Place GMAP P*Shark
As a HOTD, we thought this home was “in such nice shape that the asking price of $2,200,000 doesn’t seem aggressive given the prime location.” The only drawback noted was that the house is only 17 feet wide, but that obviously didn’t deter this buyer. Entered into contract on 11/14/11; closed on 2/09/12; deed recorded on 3/22/2012.
3. SHEEPSHEAD BAY $2,200,000

2. CARROLL GARDENS $2,325,000
122 Carroll Street GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD in October 2010. We wrote: “This house at 122 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens just hit the market with the absurd asking price of $3,500,000. Clearly part of the reason for the big ask is that the owner recently spent some dough on a renovation either the pictures aren’t very good or the renovation itself doesn’t have much of a wow factor. Could this place even fetch $2 million?” The price dropped to $2,350,000 in October 2011. Entered into contract on 11/1/11; closed on 2/1/12; deed recorded on 2/29/2012.
4. GRAVESEND $1,500,000

5. WINDSOR TERRACE $1,405,000
238 Windsor Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD way back in November 2009. We opined, “This two-family house at 238 Windsor Place in Windsor Terrace may have a slightly odd mix of old-school and 80s-contemporary aesthetics going on, but at its core it looks like a lovely old house and given that it’s got over 3,000 square feet of living space, the price tag of $1,125,000 looks reasonable to us as well.” Entered into contract on 12/2/11; closed on 2/9/12; deed recorded on 2/27/2012.
1. WILLIAMSBURG $5,000,000
331 Kent Avenue GMAP P*Shark
We covered the sale of this Williamsburg mansion yesterday. It’s a unique property: “Originally a bakery, this unique three story 10,000 sq. ft. brick loft-like building with 5,000 Sq. Ft. finished basement rests on a 68 ft. x 100 ft corner lot, with approximately 10,000 square feet of air rights.

Entered into contract on 6/27/11; closed on 7/27/11; deed recorded on 1/27/2012.

5. PARK SLOPE $2,460,000
184 St. Johns Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD November 2011. We thought, “Despite being only three stories tall, the single-family house is just what the doctor ordered in this market. It’s been impeccably restored, has some nice modern touches and is in a great Park Slope location.” Our predictions came true: it sold over the ask of $2,300,000. Entered into contract on 11/21/11; closed on 1/12/11; deed recorded on 1/25/2012.
