It’s going to be another nice weekend, and all of our open houses are in close proximity to Prospect Park. Located in Park Slope, Prospect Park South and Windsor Terrace, one could use some updating.
One of the owners of a vintage row house, which had long been a down-at-the-heels rental building, chose the bright top floor as a home for herself and her two children. She hired Warwick, N.Y.-based designer Elizabeth Aurandt of Mercer Interior to help turn the two-bedroom, railroad-style apartment into a more comfortable, polished space reflective of her life as an artist and educator.
Though mostly hidden from view, solar panels are gracing more and more rooftops in Brooklyn, fueled by tax incentives and new technology that makes installation easier on flat townhouse roofs.
Near the Crown Heights border in Clinton Hill, this bay-fronted Neo-Grec at 112 Lefferts Place has undergone what seems to be a full gut since we profiled the home as a House of the Day back in 2008, when it was in need of work and asking $985,000. The narrow brownstone was designed in 1876 by George L. Morse and is within the Clinton Hill South National Register Historic District.
Designed by Shampan & Shampan in 1926, this rambling Park Avenue-style co-op might not be a bad spot for a game of hide-and-go-seek, considering its plentiful nooks and crannies, including seven closets. Located at 41 Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights, in a building referred to in early ads as “The Aristocrat of Apartment Dwellings.”
