Formerly Crumbling 1870 Clinton Hill Corner Building Turned Around


    A run-down but historic building at 71 Irving Place has been gutted and renovated and is back on the market. Last year, a section of the facade of the multifamily apartment building crumbled while it was for sale for $975,000. At the time, it was marketed as a gut renovation, not a teardown.

    The new owners, Big Brooklyn Rehab Company, picked it up for $750,000 and decided to turn it into a three-family. They set up the 1870s brick building as a 2,500-square-foot owners duplex with two floor-through apartments above. Each unit has central air and three to four bedrooms. There are wide-plank oak floors, white lacquer cabinets, marble counters, vented range hoods, vented washers and dryers, and a roof deck. The ask for the whole building is $2,500,000.

    What do you think of how it turned out?
