    With Brooklyn’s hotter-than-hot real estate market, there’s more flipping going on here than at an acrobat’s convention, and that’s reflected in this week’s open house picks. Three of our four houses are flip jobs, given complete makeovers and ready for a quick sale. The fourth looks to be in turnkey shape, so all of our picks are ready for move-in day. They’re in Bed Stuy, Windsor Terrace and Crown Heights.

    First up is an 1887 Renaissance Revival brick and brownstone house at 284 Jefferson Avenue in Bed Stuy. This one’s got a lot of exposed brick and some prime original details, including pier mirrors, mahogany paneling, mantels, door and window frames and pocket doors. There’s a modern kitchen with a Wolf range, Sub-Zero fridge, marble counters and white lacquered cabinetry. There’s a garden rental and an upper triplex with two bedrooms on the second floor and an open third floor. Everything is new, including mechanicals, electrical, plumbing and roof; there’s a wireless sound system and a security system.

    Not far off at 581 Macon Street is a Queen Anne brownstone that’s quite similar in many respects: similar vintage, similar price, similar makeover, with everything updated. This one isn’t as detail-laden, but it’s got some, including crown moldings, wainscoting, and carved mantels. This one’s got a three-bedroom lower duplex with a finished basement below, and two one-bedroom floor-through rentals above.

    Moving over to Windsor Terrace, we’ve got a semi-detached corner brick house dating back to 1915, that’s showing for the first time. This one’s not a flip, but looks to be in perfect move-in condition. A one-family with three bedrooms, it’s got light from three exposures, nice parquet floors throughout, a front yard with a porch and a nice bay-windowed living room. There’s also an English basement with a heated garage, storage space, a rec room, a half-bath and a laundry room.

    Last up a two-family in at 32 Rochester Avenue in Crown Heights, redone from the ground up. With open spaces, exposed brick, recessed lighting, modern fixtures, and floor-to-ceiling glass on the top two floors, it’s “perfect for anyone who recognizes lavish living,” according to the listing. There’s an upper duplex with three bedrooms, including a master with a glass-enclosed en-suite bath with a walk-in shower. On the garden level is a two-bedroom rental, which is duplexed with a finished basement. The house has a/c, a security/video intercom system, multi-zoned Sonos speaker system and wireless Nest temperature control.
