Brooklyn Real Estate Listings Six Months Later: Seller in Midwood Very Happy

    This week we’re looking back at four listings we featured six months ago to see how they fared. Two homes sold and both for above ask; the other two are still on the market.

    First up, a former House of the Day, this Bed Stuy one-family, at 60 Monroe Street, has a feature not often found in a Brooklyn townhouse — a double-height library, rising from the middle of the basement floor. Set above it, reachable via a floating staircase, is a second-floor kitchen, with exposed steel ceiling beams. It makes for a distinctive home, and a fetching one in our view, though it’s not going to float everyone’s boat.

    The property sold in May for $1.62 million, $20,000 over its $1.6 million ask.

    Once a Condo of the Day, this Dumbo loft in a converted warehouse at 185 Plymouth Street, is giant, with 13.5-foot ceilings and nearly 3,000 square feet of space. It’s awfully nice as well, with exposed timber beams and posts, massive windows, and a view that takes in the Manhattan Bridge, the river and the city skyline. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open plan, as you’d want from a loft, and it makes for a vast and striking space. The bedrooms — three of them — reside at the opposite end.

    The home is still listed for $4.248 million, $342,000 less than its former $4.59 million ask.

    All the great details aren’t only in Ditmas Park — this freestanding, circa-1900 brick house, at 2218 Avenue M in Midwood, is spacious, appears to be in good condition and has a lot of potential. (Previously, it was a House of the Day). Pull up the carpet, repaint the pink and purple bedrooms, and you could really have a stunner here.

    The property sold in June for $1.52 million, $125,000 over its $1.395 million ask.

    In Boerum Hill on Wyckoff Street is a three-story brick home and former Open House Pick with a separate apartment on each floor. It looks to be in decent shape, but is low on character. So anyone looking to create a homey duplex or a triplex is going to have some work to do. Some nice original wide-plank floors though, and the house is 20 feet wide.

    The home is still on the market for $2.395 million, $105,000 less than its former $2.5 million ask.
