Here’s a Bed Stuy brownstone with an eye-catching feature: a green metal bump out with a bank of windows on the upper floor, which makes it quite literally stand out from its neighbors. At 809 Halsey Street, this Renaissance Revival house is in estate condition, looking for someone with the budget and fortitude for a complete overhaul.
This two-bedroom Brooklyn Heights co-op is more dramatic than average, thanks to its berth in a converted Gothic church, built circa 1850. A duplex with a private entrance, it’s at 99 Clinton Street, which was refashioned and split into 10 units in the 1970s. The most striking elements are the stained glass windows, most notably the massive arched one that stretches from floor to ceiling in the master bedroom.
This Crown Heights two-bedroom has ample space, a good layout, some prewar detailing and a price tag that’s not too outrageous. It’s at 277 Eastern Parkway, right by the shops and restaurants of Franklin Avenue and near the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden. It’s a basic setup: two midsized bedrooms, a decent-sized living room, a single bath and a kitchen.
This week, a quick trip back to the sunny days of June to take a look at four of our featured listings and see how they fared.
A Wintry Tour of the 19th Century Houses of Newburgh (Photos)
Newburgh, perched on a scenic spot along the western banks of the Hudson River, is a town that might be easy to miss amidst the competition from other Hudson River Valley spots. But for any 19th century architecture buff, the town is a must see. Brownstoner took a wintry walk recently and captured a brief selection of houses to whet your appetite.
