Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: All Four Sold


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

    Starting us off, this over-the-top townhouse is among the finest in Stuyvesant Heights, part of a row of 33 designed by well-known architect Magnus Dahlander. Inside, an impressive amount of ornamentation throughout typifies Dahlander’s work, especially the unusually embellished fretwork screens with antique harp lamps that are likely original to the house. Its quadruple parlor floor is outfitted with wooden mantels with swags, pier mirrors with classical columns, and built-in pedestals. This former House of the Day sold in September for $2,439,500, which was $560,500 below the asking price.

    Next, we have a one-bedroom co-op in a mid-19th century brick townhouse in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District that is petite yet charming, with a wood-burning fireplace and nicely updated kitchen and bathroom. This former Co-op of the Day sold in July for $625,000, which was $76,000 above the asking price.

    Then we have a Neo-Grec brownstone in Park Slope with door and window frames that are carved with extensive patterns. The details on pier mirrors, mantels, inlaid wood floor borders, stained glass transoms, and plaster moldings and medallions reflect the embellishments of the period. It’s organized as a triplex over an expansive one-bedroom rental on the ground floor. This former House of the Day sold in June for $5 million, which was $285,000 below the asking price.

    And to wrap things up this week, an original two-family townhouse that is Renaissance Revival with its limestone facade, foliate friezes, and three-sided bay. Part of a long row whose bays alternate between polygonal and rounded, the house is laid out as a floor-through apartment over an owner’s duplex. It appears to be in good condition, with some original details like wainscoting, pier mirrors, mantels, classical columns, moldings and medallions. This former Open House Pick sold in June for $2.5 million, which was $50,000 below the asking price.
