A HOTD this summer. Here’s what we said: “The Boerum Hill brownstone has tons of original detail that looks to be in good shape without being too immaculate. The two-family pad (triplex over garden floor-through) only has one small challenge given the asking price of $2,275,000: It’s less than 17 feet wide.” Someone sure didn’t mind the narrowness! Entered into contract on 8/22/12; closed on 11/30/12; deed recorded on 12/17/2012.

A HOTD back in 2009, then priced at $2,375,000. (It sold for $2,150,000.) It hit the market this year and was apparently gone in a single day. Ask the second time around: $2,950,000.

170 Washington Park closed on 11/29 for $2,275,000.
You would never know it from the broker’s photos, but this property at 941 East 15 Street in Midwood is an adorable wood frame Victorian house. We had to hunt down a photo on PropertyShark to figure that out because the listing photos show only a partial view of the facade and some snippets of interior detail such as the corner of a room and half a door. The exterior appears well kept, with a period-appropriate paint job, but without more photos or information in the listing or actually seeing the place in person, it’s impossible to gauge the condition of the structure, bathrooms and kitchen. And of course, without that information, there’s no way to know if the apparently low price of $395,000 is a good one. But this definitely seems worth checking out. Has anyone seen it?

3. CARROLL GARDENS $1,812,500.00
49 2nd Place GMAP P*Shark
A HOTD this summer. We said, “On the one hand, it’s refreshing to see a house in Carroll Gardens listed for less than $2 million; on the other, this two-family pad is only three stories and in need of a major makeover so it’s not like $1,900,000 is a give-away price.” Entered into contract on 7/23/12; closed on 10/17/12; deed recorded on 11/9/2012.
5. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $1,624,108.75

Here’s a pretty one-and-a-half bedroom in Midwood at 2708 Bedford Avenue. The dark wood ceiling details are lovely, and it looks like the kitchen was updated recently. For this, $1,650 a month. Like what you see?

3. PARK SLOPE $2,750,000

1. PARK SLOPE $3,450,000
167 6th Avenue GMAP P*Shark
A gorgeous HOTD we covered this May. The asking price was $3,450,000 and we didn’t doubt that it could sell at ask. Entered into contract on 6/18/12; closed on 6/27/12; deed recorded on 7/12/2012.
2. CARROLL GARDENS $2,855,000
218 Carroll Street GMAP P*Shark
Here’s what we said about the HOTD in March: “This new listing at 218 Carroll Street will hit a lot of home shoppers’ sweet spot, with its well-preserved moldings and mantels and its tastefully renovated kitchen and bathrooms.” The only question was whether buyers would pay $2,695,000 for an under 17-foot wide home. Yup! Entered into contract on 4/9/12; closed on 6/14/12; deed recorded on 7/9/2012.
5. DUMBO $2,069,582.94
205 Water Street, #7A GMAP P*Shark

Although it could use some updating, this house at 573 East 23rd Street in South Midwood has a lot of original charm to it still. It’s also on a huge (50-by-100-foot) lot and has a big porch and driveway. The listing is a short-sale that the owner’s trying to get $899,000 for. Interesting?

1. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $2,900,000
84 Joralemon Street GMAP P*Shark
This has been a HOTD three times since late 2008. It was first listed at $3,400,000, then $2,975,000, then at $2,850,000 in 2011. We said: “We’re kinda surprised that no one’s snapped this place up yet–it’s very attractive and not particularly expensive for the neighborhood. All we can think of is that, at 35 feet, the house is a little on the shallow side.” Entered into contract on 2/17/12; closed on 5/9/12; deed recorded on 5/30/2012.
2. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $2,475,000
3 Monroe Place GMAP P*Shark
Another multiple HOTD. In 2009 we said: “As lovely a house and great a location as this is, we just don’t see how they end up getting close to the asking price of $3,800,000,” considering it was a three family house. Then in 2011: “The asking price for the 4,360-square-foot house is $3,500,000, not a crazy amount on a per-square-foot basis for Brooklyn Heights.” Entered into contract on 3/19/12; closed on 5/8/12; deed recorded on 5/31/2012.
5. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS $1,955,000
