Neo-Grec With Lavish Renovation Breaks Bed Stuy Sales Record, Closes for $3.3 Million

It went into contract quickly and closed just as fast. The imposing 1881 corner-lot brownstone at 1 Verona Place in Bed Stuy that recently underwent an extravagant renovation has sold less than two months after being listed.

Put on the market for $3.25 million at the end of January, it closed last week for $3.3 million, according to an Instagram post by listing firm Compass. The sale sets a new record for Bed Stuy.

The landmarked house with the distinctive mansard roof is not your average flip, as Brownstoner noted previously in a House of the Day. It’s full of what appears to be oodles of original historic detail and modern kitchens and baths.

But looks can be deceiving: The entire interior is new. It was gut renovated by Christiaan Bunce and Adam Dahill.

The prior record of $3 million was set by a townhouse at 242 Gates Avenue in Bed Stuy not far from the Clinton Hill border. It too had an unusual renovation for the time. Its rustic-industrial look with exposed beams became popular in flips in the area.
