After selling out the brownstone condo conversion at 659 Carroll Street in Park Slope, the same developers are gearing up to do the same thing next door at 661. While the prices (which start at $949,000) seem aggressive to us, we have to say that it’s refreshing to see a conversion like this that’s neither complete crap nor trying to be too “luxury”. It looks to us like the developers went for a straight-down-the-middle approach that plays up the original floorboards and fireplace and delivers a very solid product without too much futzing around. Even the bathrooms, which have a modern edge to them, are tastefully done. Of course, the photos we’re looking at are of the first building; the second one is under construction, so it’s hard to say for sure that they will stay the course. You can go poke around for yourself at the open house on Sunday from 12-2. Small developers, take note. Keeping the original floors made this apartment.
