As great a block as this house is on and as impressive a facade it has, the asking price of $2.2 million seems like quite a stretch for this side of Flatbush Avenue. The same family has owned the house since at least the early ’80s, and besides the strange addition of new granite tiles for the wall of the entry foyer, has done little work as far as we can tell. On top of that, while most of the original details are intact, they don’t strike us as being quite as impressive as we’d expect. To be fair, it could be how they’re photographed (subpar for a Corco listing). Anyway, in case it sounds like we’re being overly negative and nit-picky, it’s only because the asking price begs scrutiny. If this had been put on the market at, say, $1.7 million, we’d have a strikingly different reaction. The price is particularly rich for a family that wants to use this as a one- or two-family, as converting from a four-family won’t be cheap.
