Four Homes by Brooklyn’s Shore to See This Weekend, Starting at $699K


With August in full swing, this week we bring you four homes near the water. While not exactly located on the beach, all of these houses are near the shoreline. Two of the houses are relatively new — a 1990s detached brick house and a 1970s semi-detached townhouse. We’ve also found two early 20th century houses — one even has parquet floors and some original moldings. The homes are all along Brooklyn’s southern coast in Marine Park, Bay Ridge and Sea Gate.

First up is the newest home — built in 1991, according to the listing. It’s a detached, five bedroom brick house on 72nd Street in Bay Ridge. There’s a huge living area with a two-story vaulted ceiling, a fireplace and a few Art Deco-inspired elements — like the curved staircase that juts out into the space. There are four levels, but without a floor plan it is hard to tell exactly what is on each level. There’s a large kitchen with white cabinetry and black granite floors and countertops. There are four full baths, including one accented with a hot pink tub, vanity and toilet. The home also has a private driveway, paved backyard and detached garage.

This Sea Gate townhouse on Ocean Avenue is also large, which is a good thing since there is a lot going on here. According to the listing the home is a legal two family but there are three units – a two-bedroom unit on the lower level and three-bedroom units on the first and top floors. In total there are eight bedrooms and five bathrooms. The top floor unit looks to have been renovated recently and has a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances. There are dark wood floors and an open floor plan. The middle apartment has wood floors but lacks some of the open, modern feel of the unit above. The basement unit has tile floors in the main spaces, with a small corner kitchen open to the living room. Though there are no pictures of the backyard which, according to the listing, has an above ground pool.

This early 20th century detached bungalow on Coleman Street in Marine Park is narrow and long. The three bedroom, two bathroom house is just 14 feet wide and has a shallow front porch and a bay window. According to the listing there’s been a fairly recent renovation on the interior and exterior, although we didn’t find any filings for the specifics. On the inside, there are bamboo floors and a vaulted ceiling in the living room. There’s no floorplan, but a virtual tour shows the living room at the front and the kitchen at the back — two bedrooms and a bath are off a narrow hallway in-between. There’s a finished basement that has a family room with a wet bar as well as a bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. According to the listing, the renovation included new plumbing and electrical, windows, roof tiles and more.

Finally, this early 20th century Arts and Crafts house detached house on Kimball Street in Marine Park was an Open House Pick back in March. Then the owners were asking $749,000 for the three bedroom, two bath home. According to the listing, a deal recently fell through and it’s back on the market, this time for $699,000 — and the sellers are motivated. This is the only house in today’s batch that has historic detail inside — parquet floors, moldings and some stained glass. The house has a finished basement with a full bath and washer and dryer, a backyard and detached garage.
