Here’s a luxurious 1920 brick two-family in Crown Heights with a large footprint, a garage and some prime original details within, including vintage baths and kitchens. It occupies a corner spot at 279 Buffalo Avenue at Lincoln Place, in the Weeksville section on the neighborhood’s eastern end.
“Girls” star Jemima Kirke is unloading her Carroll Gardens townhouse, and it’s an eye-catcher with a style that’s a match for her character on the HBO show: romantic, bohemian and unpredictable. Kirke picked up the house in 2013 and subsequently had it overhauled by architect Richard H. Lewis, the design force behind Balthazar and Tavern on the Green.
Once again our Open House Picks this weekend feature apartments, though you might not immediately guess that by glancing at the prices. They’re all over $1 million, an improbable scenario in much of the known universe but, of course, nothing unusual in these parts. They’re all condos, all recently renovated and move-in ready.
Here’s a Greenpoint three-story that doesn’t look like much from the front, with its drab aluminum-sided facade. But it’s got some nice original detail within, including crown moldings, tin ceilings and four decorative mantels. It’s at 78 North Henry Street, in the eastern part of the neighborhood, set between McGolrick Park and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Here’s an 1897 brownstone in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, with a renovated interior that combines modern updates with some nice original detail. It’s at 140 Rutland Road, on a prime block between Bedford and Rogers avenues.
