Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: All Four Sold


    This week, we took a look back at how four of our featured listings fared six months later. They include a brick house in Greenwood Heights, a loft in Dumbo and a renovated brownstone in Bed Stuy.

    Built circa 1900, this one-family brick townhouse at 421 37th Street in Greenwood Heights has had only two owners in its lifetime, and they seem to have taken good care of it. It looks to be in fine shape, and has some nice original details — as well as a decidedly non-original in-ground swimming pool. This House of the Day sold in May for $1.45 million, $68,000 below ask.

    This Dumbo loft is spacious and stylish, with an industrial-chic vibe and a vast living space that’s lined by oversized windows, and decked out with open wood beams and columns, exposed brick and wide plank floors. It’s on the fifth floor of a landmarked 1894 building at 31 Washington Street, a former iron works factory that was converted to condos in 2005 and holds 13 units. This Condo of the Day sold in June for $4.26 million, $140,000 below ask.

    Step inside this artfully renovated and imposing 1881 corner-lot brownstone with a distinctive mansard roof at 1 Verona Place in Bed Stuy and you will see oodles of apparently original historic detail and modern kitchens and baths. But take a closer look. The entire interior has been gut renovated and everything is new except parts of the stair, which has been rebuilt, reconfigured and painted in black lacquer. This House of the Day sold in March for $3.3 million, $50,000 above ask.

    Last up, on Jefferson Avenue in Bushwick we’ve got a newly gut-renovated townhouse. It’s set up with a two-bedroom rental below a three-bedroom owner’s triplex, the latter featuring the usual open-plan parlor floor, with a granite-countered kitchen in the rear, and a glass door leading to a rear porch. There’s central air, washer/dryer hookups, a video intercom system, LED lighting and a “widely popular thermostat system.” This Open House Pick sold in March for $1.34 million, $10,000 below ask.
