A House of the Day pick in 2007 and again in 2011, 181 Midwood Street sold last month for 54 percent more than it traded for five years earlier. The most recent asking price — established last September when the house re-emerged on the market — was $1,300,000. The Corcoran listing shows (and public records confirm) a sale price of $1,420,000 on December 14, 2012. (In 2007 the ask for the two-story house was $925,000 and it sold for $920,000.) That’s not too shabby for one of the smaller homes on the block, albeit one with lots of original detail and a big upgrade. As far as we know, the highest-recorded Prospect Lefferts Gardens sale is 52 Midwood for $1.665 million.
