Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Two Sold, One In Contract


    This week, we’re looking back to the fall and checking in on how four of our listings have fared six months on.

    First, this bay-fronted Bed Stuy brownstone may need some work, and maybe quite a lot of it, but it’s got some fetching period detail that would reward any renovation effort. It’s at 670 Macon Street, between Ralph and Patchen avenues. Eighteen feet in width, the house is set up with a lower duplex and a pair of apartments above — it’s legally a two-family, though, so to stay within the law you’re going to want to create a triplex with a rental or a single residence. This House of the Day sold for the ask price of $1.4 million in April.

    This Crown Heights two-bedroom isn’t huge, but it’s clean and stylish, and has a small balcony off the master bedroom. It’s on the third floor of 943 Saint Marks Avenue, a circa 1907 building that was converted to condos in 2010, and has 19 units. The brick and stone four-story building is located within the Crown Heights North Historic District III. This Condo of the Day sold in January for $528,000, $1,500 below ask.

    This four-story brownstone at 125 Halsey Street in Bed Stuy has lately been used as an SRO, and needs to be reconfigured into a one-, two- or three-family home. Other work may well be needed, but there’s nice potential here, with some prime period detail. The rowhouse was built circa 1899 and is located within the Bedford Historic District. This House of the Day is currently in contract.

    On Wellington Court in West Midwood, we’ve got a freestanding house that’s been gut renovated; everything is new in here. Some bold design choices in this one; take the kitchen, with its adventurous tile scheme. It’s got five bedrooms, including a master with a massive walk-in closet, a front porch, a rear deck, a windowed basement with a cedar-paneled laundry room, a large yard and a driveway. Formerly with Dwell, this Open House Pick is still available, now with Vera Capozucca-Cappi at Fillmore for $1.849 million. That’s a price cut of $126,000 from its original ask of $1.975 million.
