Back in March 2018, the sale of two freestanding Edwardian homes in Flatbush caused a stir. The pair of homes, located at 100 and 94 Lenox Road, sold to Besyata Investment Group for a combined $9.95 million, according to public records. New plans call for eight stories and 62 units across both lots. The apartments will be condos, according to the developer’s website.
This weekend’s open houses are all relatively modest affairs with a certain cuteness factor. They include an updated townhouse in Park Slope with a new Hardie exterior, a bright refinished kitchen, and original faux painted slate mantels asking $2.195 million and a two-story townhouse in Midwood with a patterned brick facade, nice woodwork, and a backyard patio and garden on the market for $1.339 million.
This 1887 Neo-Grec brownstone in Park Slope is a throwback to a time before the owner-architect-contractor triangle became the established model for construction as a way of managing risk. 296 6th Avenue was the owner-architect-builder Christopher P. Skelton’s jewel of the row, bookending the block with a full four-story building embellished with all of the decorative care of a house-proud designer. He lived in the corner lot until 1911.
This romantic confection of a house, complete with turrets, dormers, pointed Gothic arch windows and original interior details, comes with a quirky history worthy of a Washington Irving tale.
When the groundhog tests the weather in early February, it’s time to start thinking about the rotting fence you never got around to replacing. Fencing comes in a wide variety of styles and materials, not to mention price ranges, from premade fence panels on the low end to custom Ipe horizontal fencing on the high end.
