Two Flips and Two Beach-Adjacent Houses to See This Weekend, Starting at $2.1 Million


    Seekers of budget properties, this is not your week: All of our open house picks crack the $2 million mark, one exceeds $3 million. Beyond the common thread of hefty price tags, they’re a diverse bunch: a newly constructed townhouse and renovated brownstone in Bed Stuy, a Victorian three-family in Bath Beach and a 1960s-era late modernist single-family in Manhattan Beach.

    First up, a two-family flip on Claver Street in Bed Stuy, which will be the priciest townhouse ever sold in Bed Stuy if it goes for ask. As you’d guess, it’s quite a luxurious one, a renovated brownstone whose original details include pocket doors and marble mantels. There’s a sleek modern kitchen with a wine cooler, a Wolf stove and a SubZero fridge, a Nest thermostat system and a security system. It’s configured as a four-bedroom owner’s triplex over a two-bedroom rental, with a finished basement accessible from both units.

    Next up is another deluxe Bed Stuy townhouse with a steep price tag, this one on Putnam Avenue, literally around the corner. This one’s newly renovated, with a brick facade and four outdoor spaces: a back yard and two terraces and a roof deck laid out with artificial turf. The bottom floor is split between two small apartments, a one-bedroom and a studio; above is an owner’s triplex with four bedrooms. It’s got a kitchen with marble counters, a Sonos sound system, Nest thermostats, security and intercom systems, iPad wall mounts on each floor and a finished basement.

    It’s a hike to the next one, which sits on Girard Street in Manhattan Beach. It’s an interesting one — a single family in a 1960s late modernist style, with a wraparound porch on the second floor and a roof deck above. It’s got a large ground floor that’s split into a warren of rooms, in contrast to the open-plan spaces that are all the rage at the moment; there’s a foyer, living room, dining room, breakfast room, center hallway, den and bedroom. There’s a vintage kitchen, some built-in cabinetry, frosted glass sliding doors, and a large finished basement. There’s also a two-car garage and private driveway, and Manhattan Beach Park sits a half block away.

    The last property also sits near the shore — this one’s in Bath Beach, on Cropsey Avenue. It’s a three-story wood-frame standalone Victorian with a three-bedroom unit on each floor and a finished basement. Sited next to a gas station, it’s on an extra-large, 48-foot-by-92-foot lot; the listing claims parking for 10 cars. There are no interior photos, but the listing promises “newly renovated condition” and “loads of details,” as well as a new boiler and hot water heater.
