An interest in historic hardware has made this story from 2017 newly popular. If you’ve spent any time peering at the door hardware in a late 19th century Brooklyn house, you’ve probably spotted an Eastlake hinge or doorknob but perhaps not known what to call it. Eastlake was a popular design style in the late 19th century and is characterized by a combination of naturalistic and geometric patterns.
Our open house picks from last week offer appealing historic details alongside modern upgrades, and two have parking. At least three appear to be in move-in condition. Ranging in price from $899,000 to $1.925 million, they are found in Brownsville, Flatbush, Prospect Park South and Crown Heights.
Located in the micro nabe of Beverley Square East, this detached single family home offers parking, bedrooms galore and an interior stuffed with original details. Dating to the early 20th century, 340 East 18th Street also boasts a front porch and a rear yard for plenty of fresh air space.
A rare bit of mid-century modern amidst the 19th century rows of Brooklyn Heights, this 1960s Willow Place abode was home to the architects behind its design, Joseph and Mary Merz.
This two-bedroom loft offers some shared outdoor space and industrial details, such as high ceilings and wood beams, as befits the building’s former use as a factory. It’s located in the Columbia Waterfront District at 29 Tiffany Place, which is a bit of a walk from the nearest subway, but that might not be an issue for those in work from home mode.
