Our open house picks this weekend offer a convenient road map for those who want to take in all four: two are in Park Slope, one’s next door in Windsor Terrace and the last is just down the road in Kensington. There’s a pair of frame houses, a brick number and a brownstone; all are livable as is, but some could use a bit of work.
Here’s a Ditmas Park standalone at 520 Argyle Road that brings a lot to the table. It’s huge, for starters. It’s also beautifully renovated and in prime condition, with a new roof and new mechanicals. It’s got a driveway, a garage, central air, a humidity-control system and choice original details.
Here’s a four-story Bed Stuy brownstone that looks to be in good shape, and is set up as an investment property with an apartment on each floor. It’s at 372 Jefferson Avenue, a central locale in close proximity to many a neighborhood fave, like Peaches Hot House and Eugene and Co.
A white clapboard house with early 19th century roots for sale in Putnam County predates the railroad that transformed the village of Brewster, N.Y., in which it sits. Now the town is on the cusp of another metamorphosis, as locals contemplate a controversial 1960s-style urban renewal plan.
Industrial-style steel frame windows have come a long way since the days of the drafty factory window, and they’ve become increasingly popular in high-end townhouse renovations. Their skinny mullions allow more sunlight to reach the depths of dark row houses, and the industrial style creates a striking contrast against a historic home.
