Four Open Houses to See This Sultry Weekend, Starting at $459K

    by

    We’ve made our way into August, an excellent month for leaving the office behind and hitting the beach, and a distinctly slow month for property seeking. Open houses are scant, but the wheels of commerce haven’t ground to a complete halt, and there are a few out there. We’ve lined up four, in Bed Stuy, Fort Hamilton, East Flatbush and East New York.

    The first one is at 40 New York Avenue in Bed Stuy, a four-story, 22-foot-wide Italianate brownstone (albeit one in need of actual brownstoning). A legal three-family, it’s set up as a single residence, with the kitchen on the top floor. This one needs work, and quite possibly a lot, but the few photos are tantalizing, showing marble fireplaces, some ornate crown moldings, pocket shutters, and other detail.

    In Fort Hamilton, on Battery Avenue, we’ve got an early 20th century storybook rowhouse with two stories and four bedrooms. There’s a cute brick facade with an arched red door and an attached garage — and that’s the only thing pictured. Whatever lurks behind that facade needs attention — it’s a “fixer upper,” according to the listing.

    In East Flatbush, at 568 East 37th Street, we’ve got a small, early 20th-century wood frame house with two stories and three bedrooms. This one needs a kitchen upgrade and possibly other work as well. The listing says it’s “well maintained” with “lots of original details”; the photos reveal parquet floors, original doors and moldings. There’s a finished basement with a “hospitality suite,” and a shared driveway with parking in the rear.

    The final stop is Logan Street in East New York, where we find a single-family flip. Everything’s new — windows, floors, boiler, roof, bathrooms, kitchen. It’s got one bedroom on the first floor and two above, and a finished basement. There’s a washer and dryer and a rear garden that currently consists of a dirt plot — think of it as a blank slate for the gardener.
