Four Townhouses With Details and Updates to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.199 Million


    The open house picks for this weekend are all move-in ready townhouses, three of them recently updated. All have notable historical features such as arched doorways, staircases, built-ins and elaborate ceilings. Two of them are single-families looking for $2.695 million and $2.3 million, and two are two-families asking for $2.285 and $1.199 million. They are found in Bed Stuy, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Park Slope and Bay Ridge.

    In Bed Stuy, a nicely updated Italianate/Neo-Grec brick townhouse at 389 Classon Avenue has preserved original details and modern kitchen and baths. The facade has an impressive cornice, stylish bracketed hoods over the windows and doors, and cast iron metalwork. Modern updates include an open kitchen with an island and new cabinets and a rear balcony off the kitchen. It’s listed at $2.695 million.

    Then at 22 Midwood Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, an Axel Hedman-designed single-family limestone townhouse has rounded window bays and ornamental friezes. The parlor-level woodwork includes a built-in bench below the staircase, mantels, and an ornate dining room with wainscoting and a coffered ceiling. The kitchen is modernized, though not in the most recent fashion. It’s asking $2.3 million.

    Another open house to see is in South Slope at 413 16th Street. It’s a late 19th century red brick row house with rough-faced brownstone trim. Set up as a floor through apartment over a duplex, it has nice woodwork with fluted trim and corner blocks, updated kitchens and baths, and original mantels. It’s on the market for $2.285 million.

    Last, in Bay Ridge, a classically-inspired early 20th century townhouse at 216 88th Street has decorative brickwork, round portals, keystones and a porch. Inside, historic details include a coffered ceiling, inlaid parquet floors and French doors. The open plan kitchen seems at odds with the house’s traditional details, but could probably easily be improved. The ask is $1.199 million.
