Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, Two Still Available


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Prospect Heights, Ditmas Park, Park Slope and Bed Stuy. How did they fare?

    First, there’s a large Neo-Grec brownstone in Prospect Heights that has four stories plus a basement, with renovated eat-in kitchens in the extensions of the garden floor rental and the triplex’s parlor level. The parlor level displays a wealth of historical detail and craftsmanship, with its floor-to-ceiling pier mirror with finely carved columns, extensive crown molding, and columned opening to the dining room. This former House of the Day is still available for $4.375 million, which is $200,000 below the previous asking price.

    Situated on the top floor of the six-story, 71-unit elevator building designed by Oscar L. Silverstone, this co-op is a junior two-bedroom with plenty of space for books in the entry hall and some charming vintage details. These include parquet floors, built-in shelves in a niche in the foyer, and the aforementioned arched openings. It has lost the colored tiles in the bathroom to an update, a variation on an earlier 20th century style, the classic all-white bathroom featuring subway tile walls, hex tile floor and pedestal sink. This former Co-op of the Day sold in August for the asking price of $650,000.

    Then we have an Italianate brownstone near Grand Army Plaza in the Park Slope Historic District that is about as classic as they come, with a wealth of well-kept original details, considered updates and a serene air. Some of the more outstanding features include five carved marble mantels, extra tall French windows that open onto Juliet balconies, and elaborate parquet “wood rugs” with ribbon and bow borders in the parlors. Technically a two-family, the four-story house is configured as a single-family with a traditional layout. This former House of the Day is still available for $3.495 million, which is $200,000 below the asking price.

    Finally, in Bed Stuy, there’s a sweet little brick Neo-Grec townhouse that lost its crown moldings but has beautiful original floors, mantels and woodwork. The kitchens and baths are nicely updated, and it looks move-in ready. This former Open House Pick sold in August for $1.22 million, which was $70,000 above the asking price.
