Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Off the Market


    This week, we look back at four of our featured listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in Bed Stuy, Clinton Hill, Park Slope and Sheepshead Bay. How did they fare?

    First up, we have this elegantly renovated narrow Italianate brownstone in Bed Stuy that has been reconfigured into a single-family since we featured it as a House of the Day in 2013, removing the garden-level kitchen, which becomes an additional bedroom. According to a comparison with the previous floor plan, the hallway on the parlor-level has also been opened up, the kitchen moved to the rear, and an island added, along with french doors that reveal a new deck with stairs to the garden. It has eight marble mantels, pocket shutters, wide plank floors, and crown molding on some levels. This former House of the Day did not sell and is currently off the market.

    Next, this cozy studio in Clinton Hill, measuring 13.5 by 20 feet, would need an in-person visit to see if it’s manageable. But from the photos, it does appear to have some appealing features. These include clever little cubbyholes throughout and windows on three sides. A murphy bed adds floor space, and two closets flank a window. There are built-in shelves in three niches, including one by the front door. The floors and moldings appear to be original. This former Co-op of the Day sold in June for $370,000, which was $20,000 above the asking price.

    Then, we have a three-story limestone very close to Prospect Park with a front terrace spacious enough for a small table and chairs. Located at 597 5th Street in Park Slope, this is another one of those ambivalent properties possessing glorious details, some covered over with paint, others preserved in their original — but dark for our times — Axel Hedman-designed splendor. A former House of the Day, it sold in August for $3.5 million, which was $250,000 below the asking price.

    And last, but not least, there’s this single-family semi-detached row house in Sheepshead Bay that has curb appeal, an abundance of windows on three sides, and a garage. The facade is simple and modern, in keeping with its era, with large rectangular windows and fancy red patterned brickwork. Beyond the stoop are a sunroom and a large combination living room/dining room with attractive parquet floors. This former House of the Day sold in August for $792,500, which was $6,500 below the asking price.
