Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Three Sold, One Still Available

    by

    Here’s a look at how four of our featured listings from six months ago fared on the market.

    First, an elegant Park Slope townhouse with well-preserved details, that was up for sale for the first time in over 30 years. Built around the turn of the century at 429 1st Street, it diverges a bit from the usual brownstone formula, with a center staircase, some neo-Colonial detail and a distinctive facade with a single arched window at the parlor level. This former House of the Day sold in May for $2.85 million, which was $649,000 below the initial asking price.

    Next up, a nice three-bedroom floor-through co-op in the Park Slope Historic District, in good shape and with some choice original detail. Built in 1905, it sits a half block from Prospect Park, on the third floor in a fine figure of a brownstone on 8th Street. This former Co-op of the Day sold in March for $1.3 million, which is $75,000 below the asking price.

    After that, a four-story brownstone that needs some work, but has details and offers some potential to a buyer who’s up for a renovation project. It’s at 410A Hancock Street, in Stuy Heights, just north of the Stuy Heights Historic District. This former House of the Day changed brokers but is still available for the initial asking price of $1.85 million.

    Wrapping it up, a Bed Stuy brownstone with an eye-catching feature: a green metal bump out with a bank of windows on the upper floor, which makes it quite literally stand out from its neighbors. At 809 Halsey Street, this Renaissance Revival house is in estate condition, looking for someone with the budget and fortitude for a complete overhaul. This former House of the Day sold in March for $1.23 million, which was $232,000 above the initial asking price.
