Four Updated Townhouses With Vintage Charm to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.06 Million


    Up for consideration today is a raft of cute prewar and Victorian townhouses in central and southern Brooklyn, all priced under $2 million. All appear to be in move-in condition. They span Bed Stuy, Ocean Hill, Flatbush and Bay Ridge.

    In Bed Stuy close to the Clinton Hill border, we have a mid to late 19th century brick townhouse with classic Italianate features. Currently set up as a double duplex, the house has five white marble mantels, a pier mirror, some original floors, plaster details and a curved staircase. Kitchens and baths have been updated, and all the windows are new, according to the listing.

    In Bay Ridge now, this early 20th century stucco and brick Tudor cottage offers three bedrooms and three baths as well as a garage, driveway and mature landscaped backyard with lighting. It’s fully detached, with windows on all four exposures. There’s a sunroom, dining room, parquet and inlaid floors, gas fireplace, original staircase, and moldings. The attic is insulated and the cellar is finished. The latter contains a laundry room and half bath. The house also has zoned heating, Anderson windows and a seven-year-old roof.

    Moving on to Flatbush, close to Brooklyn College we have a classic circa 1901 Renaissance Revival two-family brick house with porch. It’s set up as two nearly identical floor-through apartments, with living room in front, a bedroom or two in the middle and dining rooms in back, with kitchens running alongside. There are high ceilings, inlaid and parquet floors, original doors and moldings, plaster details and coffered ceilings. Bathrooms and kitchens are recently updated. The cellar is below grade, according to PropertyShark, and therefore likely not legal living space but contains a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom with shower, the floor plan shows.

    This 19th century wood frame row house in Ocean Hill close to Broadway Junction was gut renovated, and stucco replaced vinyl siding on its exterior, in 2015. It’s set up as an owner’s duplex over a two-bedroom garden floor rental. The floor plan has been opened up, and almost everything appears to be new, including floors, a modern staircase, and baseboard heating. It retains two charming original slate mantels, complete with summer covers. Unusually, the house does not have a cellar; mechanicals are located in the rear of the garden floor. We featured the property as a House of the Day when it was on the market in 2015. It last changed hands in 2016 for $895,000.
