Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: One Sold, Three Still Available


    This week, we’re looking back to the beginning of April and checking in on how four of our featured listings fared on the market.

    First up, this listing is a head-turner for more reasons than one. The house itself is a stunner — a painstakingly restored 1895 Renaissance Revival Bed Stuy brownstone loaded with original details and exquisite Victorian-style updating. And the sale will come as a shock to many — at 538 Decatur Street, it’s the home of a couple known to many Brownstoner readers and Bed Stuy residents who are restoring or renovating houses. This House of the Day is still available for an increased price of $1.925 million.

    Next, is a Clinton Hill house with a good deal of detail inside and out — and some interesting history. Located at the neighborhood’s southern edge, at 538 Clinton Avenue, off Atlantic Avenue, it’s one of a group of three with a mansard roof, bay window, and carved detail out front. While it looks like limestone, it is actually Béton Coignet cast stone — concrete. This House of the Day is still available for a reduced price of $3.35 million.

    Third is an unusual and attractive prewar one-bedroom co-op in an interesting building for under $500,000. It’s on the fourth floor of a turreted Queen Anne limestone mansion at 184 Clinton Avenue, designed by Montrose Morris and built in 1892. It’s got a good-sized living room with an offbeat hexagon-ish shape and light from three windows. This Co-op of the Day sold in June for the ask price of $455,000.

    Finally, a detached early 20th century brick house in Colonial Gardens, a private mews in Bay Ridge, off Shore Road. This one’s got an interior garage, which shares the English basement with a laundry room, a half-bath and a paneled rec room. In the house proper there are three bedrooms (with river views from the master), a living room with a fireplace, a dining room and a small kitchen. This Open House Pick is still available.
