This property at 104 Butler Street in Carroll Gardens offers a unique setup, with two separate structures: a three-story townhouse and a three-story carriage house in the rear.
This estate-condition Italianate brownstone in Bed Stuy needs some work, but with a load of original detail and stately proportions, it has the makings of quite a grand residence.
This is a home of rare distinction -- it's one of only a handful of marble-fronted townhouses in Brooklyn. At 326A Decatur Street, in the Stuy Heights Historic District, it sits in the middle of a row of three such houses, all built circa 1886 by architect John C. Bushfield.
If you're a chiropractor or orthodontist in need of a one-bedroom apartment, this mixed-use building at 387 6th Avenue in Park Slope could be right up your alley. On a corner lot, the former brick townhouse with a garage in the rear now consists of commercial space on the first floor and a pair of apartments above.
This three-story brick house is on a quiet block of President Street in Gowanus, in an area where all manner of building has been going on. It's a two-family house that looks like it could use some updating, but has a bit of original detail, including a pair of marble fireplaces.
This two-family house on Bainbridge Street has some original detail, and the potential to be a nice single-family residence, or duplex-plus-rental.
This three-story townhouse is bright, tranquil and quite lovely, having been renovated with some nice finishes and a designer's eye. It's at 189 Huntington Street, at the south end of Carroll Gardens.
This yellow clapboard house at 72 Hicks Street is one of the oldest houses in Brooklyn Heights and has been written about on this site umpteen times. It was built in 1825, according to the listing, and has had many updates over the years.
We see what appear to be three original Federal style mantels as well as later 19th century alterations, including a late Victorian screen and wall coverings in a hallway. The house is 25 feet wide.
Recent updates include a new kitchen and baths with stone counters and tile, a media room, exercise room, office and laundry room. There is also a landscaped garden with flowering trees.
The mechanicals are all new and the house has a combination of central air and mini splits (to preserve the details). It’s set up as a triplex over a garden floor apartment.
The house last sold for $2,900,000 in 2009. The new ask is $10,750,000. Do you think that’s a stretch or about right for this historic home?
We’re not always big fans of renovations that merge the old and the new, but here we think the architect hit one out of the ballpark. This Romanesque Revival brownstone at 300 Prospect Place retains quite a few original details, including elaborate wood mantels and moldings, among carefully inserted modern features.
The overall vibe is rustic industrial. Perhaps the most unusual feature is the staircase, which has moved to the rear and bypasses the garden-floor rental completely.
It doesn’t get much grander than this Italianate at 166 Lefferts Place in Bed Stuy. The main attractions here are the elaborately detailed Italianate marble mantels — there are six.
The house also has its original front doors, shutters, inlaid floors, two pier mirrors, and many other original details. Click through for more photos and to see the well-preserved exterior.
It’s set up as two floor-through apartments over an owener’s duplex but the floor plan looks intact and easy to convert to a triplex or one-family. It appears to have been recently updated, with high-end appliances and granite counters in the owner’s kitchen.
An open house is scheduled for this Sunday, the 19th. What do you think of it and the ask of $2,100,000?
