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


    This week, we’re taking a look at a home in Boerum Hill’s Historic District, two homes in Bed Stuy, and another in Cypress Hills to see how they’ve fared on the market six months after we first wrote about them.

    First up, the listing for this brick townhouse at 179 Wyckoff Street in Boerum Hill isn’t loaded with photos or information, but we can tell you this much: It’s a three-story house, 20 feet wide, with a separate unit on each floor and original wide-plank floors. Built in the 1870s, it is located within the Boerum Hill Historic District and the exterior features a richly decorated cornice. The listing indicates that it needs work, and perhaps not a small amount of it. This former House of the Day is still available.

    This four-story 1889 Queen Anne row house with an angled front needs some work, maybe quite a bit, but it’s got some original details including moldings and a quartet of fireplace mantels, and could be turned into something nice. It sits at 17 Agate Court, a cul-de-sac off Atlantic Avenue lined with Queen Anne homes built at the same time; its houses and those on adjacent Alice Court are landmarked. This House of the Day is in contract.

    In Bed Stuy on Madison Street we have a flip with a bit of an industrial feel. It’s a three-story, with a one-bedroom garden rental and a three-bedroom upper duplex, with an open plan parlor floor with a floating staircase. It’s gut renovated — everything’s new, including kitchens and baths. There’s exposed brick, a trio of skylights, a rear deck, and a finished basement with a tiled floor and a separate rear entrance. This former Open House Pick sold in February for $1.425 million, $70,00 below ask.

    Another flip is in store on Adler Place in Cypress Hills, a block-long street that sits by the elevated J/Z tracks. This one’s a one-family, 20 feet wide and 36 feet deep, with two stories and a finished basement. The first floor is open plan, the second holds three bedrooms (if you count a windowless one with a skylight). There’s a back yard, a small porch in front and central a/c. This former Open House Pick entered contract in May.
