House of the Day: 371 Carlton Avenue


Guess it’s not all champagne and bidding wars in Brownstone Brooklyn these days. After about five weeks on the market at $1,895,000, the bricktownhouse at 371 Carlton Avenue has received more than a 10 percent price cut to $1,690,000. Before everyone leaps into hysterics and declares the sky is falling, however, it’s important to note that this is not your standard Fort Greene brownstone. It lacks the grandeur that full stoop brings (though, to a family with small children, this could be seen as a big bonus) and it’s only three real floors of living space; it’s also a three-family, so it doesn’t fit the profile of the most common house hunter. While the interior has lost some of its moldings, the fireplaces and woodwork is intact and the house appears to be in very good overall condition. This big cut should stir up interest, we’d think.
